Weather and Boating

It's raining. In fact, it's pouring right now, and the forecast shows thunderstorms and rain from today, Thursday, through most of the weekend to Father's Day before the GTA gets a break and this weather probably extends well beyond my immediate area.

Marinas and yacht clubs on Lake Ontario, as well as many tourism related businesses, are affected in a big way. The Weather Network has a comprehensive story and video clips as well, to detail the situation: www.theweathernetwork.com.

Their story stated, "With Lake Ontario water levels at their highest in a century, officials have now begun the largest outflow from the lake in history, to drain off the excess into the St. Lawrence seaway."

"Up until Wednesday, outflow from Cornwall's Moses-Saunders Power Dam - the drainage point at the eastern end of Lake Ontario - had already risen from roughly 7,000 cubic metres per second earlier this year to 10,200 cubic metres per second. For reference, that's over four Olympic-sized swimming pools worth of water passing through the dam, every second."

"At just past noon on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, that outflow rate was increased to 10,400 cubic metres per second, apparently the highest outflow rate for the dam, ever."

In spite of the staggering rate of the outflow, the lake will only drop by one centimeter in the next week! And, maybe not even that if this rain keeps up. Let's hope that the forecast get revised and the rain diminishes at least long enough to give us a good weekend. I'd say dad deserves that! Hope you had a happy Father's Day…
