We’re used to our hottest summer day in northwestern Ontario usually being in the mid 80s and only lasting for a couple days. We broke that barrier yesterday hitting the 90 degree mark. We can’t complain too much since we know many places back in the states are over 100 degrees this week.
Hot air from the U.S. drifting north is actually the cause of the above average temps, but the heat wave is only expected to last a couple days. We should be back in the mid to upper 70s next week with lows down into the 50s. There is no air conditioning at Eagle Falls Lodge, but it gave us cause to bust the fans out of storage for a couple days.
Interestingly enough the weather service also issued an official Squall Watch last night. We can’t say we have ever seen that pop up before. Mother Nature didn’t disappoint and a squall blew through with some rain and lots of lightning. For those of you scoring at home a squall is a sudden sharp increase in wind lasting for a short time associated with rain showers or thunderstorms. We survived major damage though with only a few tree limbs down in the yard.
Tomorrow we’ll catch up from our off week with plenty of fish pictures!
