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.

There are an abundant number of fun, charitable, and fun charitable events going on this weekend like joining NHL stars Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche, Cody Hodgson of the Buffalo Sabres and their friends for an unforgettable Charity Golf Tournament to benefit flood-ravaged Minden Hills.

Or, if you are a cyclist with leanings towards natural and cultural attractions why not check in to a fully-guided 65km bicycle tour taking you on a breathtaking adventure along the scenic and hilly Harburn Road to visit a variety of art studios and natural and cultural attractions?

And, make sure not to miss the kick-off event of the summer, Rails End Treasures N Trash!
This is Haliburton’s Summer Starter – the biggest and best community yard sale ever! Antiques, collectables, vintage stuff, jewelry, gourmet preserves and other great stuff!

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

With such gloomy circumstances, good weather news is very welcome, indeed. Today is a good example of what you can expect over the weekend and beyond.

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:

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!
