Sunday’s NASA MODIS satellite pass shows Temagami iced in on both the true color image & the infrared (false blue color) image. The infrared sounder shows water breaks on NIpissing and the Ottawa river. The darker blue indicates open water, thin ice or water on top of snow/ice. When clear days allow, I will post more imagery as the weather warms.
The March and April 2019 Municipality of Temagami Town Council Meeting agendas & draft minutes are now posted on the Municipality’s website. The draft meeting minutes for the March and April public meetings are linked below.
Mayor Dan O’Mara forwards the following message along with his most recent Temagami Town Council update. A link to the April update follows his request.
“Until the Town has a comprehensive email network I will use my email listing to send out updates. To start development of a Town email system, should you desire to participate, we ask you to send your email contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know someone not receiving this email please send it along to them. Thanks
Despite the snow cover, April begins the early fire season in Canada, beginning in the western provinces. Natural Resources Canada has enhanced fire weather information for the public on the internet. The Canadian Wildland Fire Information System (CWFIS) will create daily fire weather and fire behavior maps year-round & hot spot maps throughout the forest fire season, generally between May and September. An interactive GPS based CWFIS map covers all of Canada and can resolve down to a specific provincial region. By toggling <overlays>, a user can choose to display daily fire danger, active fires, fire weather perimeter estimates, M3 hot spots and fire history. Comprehensive background on the CWFIS including additional links to fire weather forecasts is accessible online here.
Printable current monthly Sunrise-Sunset Tables will now be posted to the TLA web page. The April 2019 table is accessible here. Temagami gains over three minutes of daylight each day in April- the largest monthly gain of the year. A comprehensive daily solar & lunar ephemeris including times for local solar noon and twilight is available through the link below.
