Weekend Weather – Haliburton Highlands
By Sunday, there will be a chance of thundershowers, though temperatures will feel seasonably warm. (Personally, I don’t mind getting wet if it’s a summer rain shower–and there is a fluffy towel at the end of my journey.):

There will be isolated showers on Monday but the temperature will again feel much warmer than your thermostat might indicate.
There will be cloudy periods on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday but temperatures should feel more seasonably inline with what they usually are.

Sunny, Dry Days Should Help Alleviate Highlands Flooding Woes
Kawagama Lake in Dorset Ontario – May 3 2013
Minden Hills residents in particular have been hit hard by flooding in recent weeks and though water levels are showing signs of improvement, the community remains in a state of emergency. (For up-to-the minute news about flood conditions and relief click

Through next Wednesday, there is NO rain in the forecast and the majority of days will be MOSTLY Sunny.
Beyond that, in the 14-Day Weather Outlook:
Highland’s 14-day Weather Outlook
Well, it is spring but from what we see here, the Highlands will be getting a full week’s respite from rainfall with 9 of 14 days calling for no precipitation. The few days with a chance of rain are followed by sunny days, so with any luck there won’t be much back-sliding on the recovery from the flooding. There certainly is reason to be grateful. Low temperatures remain across-the-board higher than normal and the high temperatures, when averaged out, look just about spot-on normal.

It’s spring so yeah, it’s rainy–that’s what we all know we need. The temps look really good though–very normal highs and geez, how many more times am I going to note this(?) –higher than normal low temps. I have a problem with neither.
Also to note–the boats are back in the water in Kincardine Harbour as well as some other locations, while places like Kawagama Lake still look at least partially frozen. Diversity is good, right?

With any luck and the cooperation of our beloved Mother Nature, the rain should bring good conditions for summer–you know, lots of green and hopefully a low chance of fires in the Highlands. Fingers crossed!

Well, there’s no denying that spring is here, though Mother Nature seems to be slightly uncertain as the temperatures flit upward in the normal range and then flutter down, slightly below normal. (This applies to both the high and low temps this week.) Though the calendar assures us that it is indeed spring, in truth we are beginning the transition between winter and spring and so will continue to experience weather that can best be described as ‘unpredictable.’
