he following is an update on current weather conditions in Muskoka. Muskoka-Parry Sound is still under a Snow Squall Warning and is expected to receive another 10-15 cm before the snow stops late this evening.
Over the past week, Muskoka has experienced temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius with wind chill factors approaching -40, and has received significant snowfall. Most areas have seen three to four feet of snow. We are also expecting warmer temperatures and rain this weekend. While we are not experts, the MLA recommends that you or a representative check your cottage roof. Heavy snow accumulation can pose a threat to your home both as it builds up and as it melts.
While the MLA cannot endorse or recommend a local snow removal service, we encourage you to consult a neighbour or your local Chamber of Commerce.
We will keep the membership updated should conditions warrant.
