Wacky Weird Weather – Oh my! — Wilderness North

Celebrating 30 Years of Wilderness North  –          

Wacky Weird Weather – Oh my!

Graham Saunders WN weathermanA litany of savage weather events throughout North America in May have gone into the record books: floods, fires and tornadoes plagued many locations.   Northern Ontario was not immune but severe weather caused inconvenience, not crisis. May was quite dry and wildfires prompted the evacuation of Allanwater, a small community west of Armstrong. An intense storm on May 31 brought some rain and lessened the fire danger but also damaging winds with gusts to 70 mph.

It is risky to predict relatively seasonal weather after many weeks of anything but let’s risk it.
North of Armstrong and Nakina on the Ogoki and Albany River systems expect some showers with some widely scattered thunderstorms today and into tomorrow. Average daytime temperatures are around 71F at this time of the year and these are likely today and tomorrow. Expect a little cooler conditions with sunshine later in the week, followed by slightly warmer than average on the coming weekend.
