Sunset June 25, Lake of Bays - Muscoka
It was an OK day for the G8 to come visiting, no? They had to work anyway.
Welcome to your weekend! Apologies again for my tardiness in getting the forecast posted, as last night I was helping my spouse celebrate his birthday weekend. (I’ve now declared a moratorium on June birthdays. Two max. My Dad and my spouse. Everyone else, we’ll wait ’till a later date. It’s one of those preserving one’s sanity measures).
OK then. If it’s Saturday when you read this I suppose you can take a look outdoors and see either cloudiness or cloudiness & showers and temperatures running in the very low 60′s°F. Until late Saturday night that is what you can expect. By overnight Saturday you’ll feel a drop in temperatures to 48°F. The total accumulation of precipitation should be no more than 0.3 inches.

Sunday, expect a day with cloudy periods, a high projected to be 73°F and a low overnight of 48°F. There may be up to 0.4 inches of precipitation accumulation in total.
Monday calls for thundershowers, a high temp of 70°F and a low overnight of 59°F. Precipitation accumulation will be 0.1 inch.
By Tuesday there is a slight change in the weather with variable cloudiness in the forecast and a high temperature of 61°F. The low overnight will be a blanket-worthy 50°F. No rain is in the forecast.
Wednesday, expect more variable cloudiness, a daytime high of 63°F and and overnight low of a chilly 48°F. Break out the quilts! No rain is in the forecast, however.
Thursday is a day of celebration as the the forecast calls for a mainly sunny day! The high temperature will be a comfortable 68°F, the low overnight 48°F (don’t forget your quilt!), and there is no rain in the forecast.
Friday, expect variable cloudiness, a daytime high of 72°F and an overnight low of 54°F. Again, no rain is forecast. (See below for the Bug Forecast.)

Welcome to your weekend!
I’ll be back to walk you through the weather for the weekend but in short, I want to apologize for it because it comes from here in the States. We lost power today–tree limbs flying, high winds, pounding rain and your area too possibly shall see similar weather through most of Saturday. It’s full-on thundershowers NOT scattered so I’d cancel what you may have planned outdoors for Saturday morning through at least afternoon. The problem here at least is that there are a series of storm systems …so you get past the one and a short bit later…here in my house one of my dogs starts shivering and I know they are coming back before they hit.
Weekend Weather Jun 18- 19 2010
EDIT/:6.19.10 After a thorough examination other the weather forecasts in your area for the next 36 hours, I agree that Friday overnight the Haliburton Highlands will be mainly clear and about 17°C.
By Saturday morning thundershowers turn to full- blown thunderstorms which will last in parts of Ontario until Saturday evening when the skies are to clear. It will be mainly sunny with a comfortable temperature of 21°C on Saturday evening. Sounds nice.
It will be continue to be mainly sunny at daybreak on Sunday after a Saturday overnight low of 15°C. More below.

"Maman" by Louise Bourgeois (1912- 2010) National Gallery Ottawa
I realized today that I should read more often as I happened upon several interesting news items including that the creator of the piece above, Louise Bourgeois died on May 31 at the age of 98. One of the more intriguing things about Ms. Bourgeois besides the daring in her creations (“Maman” means mother) is that she did not “break out” in the art world until she was in her 70′s. Bourgeois was both an innovative Surrealist and a feminist pioneer having been the first woman to have a retrospective at MoMA in NYC in the early 1980′s. It’s pretty cool that one of her most well-known pieces having been exhibited around the globe, is residing in a prominent place in Ottawa.
