So, I’m at the Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival today and the weather here is rather exciting. It’s been raining almost constantly since we arrived and there have been delays because of lightning. I’ve been watching the Franktown radar and it’s not encouraging.
The aviation forecast for Ottawa is equally bleak:

The 30 gusting to 50 knots winds with heavy thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon will be truly delightful.
