Another week of summer-like conditions prevailed around Lake Nipigon and the Albany/Ogoki River systems. Temperatures at this time of the year typically rise to near 60 F. and mornings are cool – around 40 F. The previous two weeks have featured readings 10 to 20 degrees warmer. This is the weather anglers usually experience in mid August. Lake levels remain high due to both water release of dams that control levels and our record breaking cool summer that held back evaporation.
Today will be sunny with temperatures reaching near 70 F. Thursday will be slightly warmer with cloud and sun and widely scattered showers. The rest of the week looks mainly sunny. An advancing low-pressure system is likely to bring wet and cooler weather early next week. –Graham Saunders
