In re: this week’s Haliburton Highland’s weather: April showers bring May flowers!
I’ve managed to snag some lovely webcam snaps from throughout southern Ontario today. I’m delighted to say the the quality of the webcam shots available has increased quite a bit of late (Thank you, theweathernetwork.com). Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for this week’s weather though some folks might greet it with relief that it is a return, with just an exception or two, to seasonal temperatures (precipitation looks normal as well).

Though in skimming through the webcam shots that I snapped earlier today (Friday) one can see some snow cover, if you look closely you can see that it is quickly disappearing (compare to last week). For all intents, it is spring in the Haliburton Highlands which should make the question of what to expect when we get into ‘true’ spring really interesting, never mind pondering what will be in store for summer 2012 in the Haliburton Highlands! Regardless of what’s coming weather-wise I am truly looking forward to my time spent in the Highlands. Hope to see YOU there!

Just a quick word about the weather. Even in a typical Ontario winter-to-spring weather transition things can get messy. This year, after an unusually warm winter, the change is still happening–high winds, 3 and four kinds of precipitation simultaneously; it seems even more extreme perhaps because of the mildness we’ve had over the past months. So here’s the latest WEATHER warning–updated this Friday, March 2, 2012, afternoon. Stay safe!
