Boater heads from Norman towards Welcome Channel

With temperatures heading steadily into the double-digits today, an adventurous boater took his vessel out of storage for a tune-up run on Lake of the Woods. It might even be time to take out the water skis for the annual rite of spring.

The long-range forecast for the weekend has the mercury heading past 20 degrees, as the heatwave continues in northwestern Ontario. With only partly cloudy conditions on the horizon, it might even be an opportunity to rake the lawn and clean off the driveway.

Ice is disappearing quickly around Kenora

For those thinking of getting out the sun tan lotion, it's a good day for it. The UV index is just 3 for this afternoon, or moderate, so enjoy the opportunity to get some colour back.
