March 15, 2015: Record High?

According to Environment Canada, Kenora’s record high temperature for March 15th was 11.2°C, set in 2012.* We have a chance to beat that today. Although Environment Canada is calling for a high of just (!) 9°C, the Weather Network predicts we will hit 12°C for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

Average temperatures for March 15th are an overnight low of -10°C and a daytime high of 0°C, so even if the lower forecast is more accurate, we’re running way above normal today. Last night’s low was 5°C.

One or two nice days won’t change the big picture much, but I like to think that every little bit helps. Next week will see a return to more moderate temperatures, with daytime highs close to freezing or a few degrees above, and overnight lows ranging from -5°C to -14°C.

*We had a nice early thaw that year; the lake was ice-free around the third week of April.
