You know it’s the unofficial kick-off to Summer when the Midway rolls into town and of course, some unsettled weather too.
As the folklore goes, when the carnival sets up for the Victoria day weekend, a long tradition in Sault Ste. Marie – along comes the showers and cool temperatures. It happens almost every year and this year doesn’t seem to be an exception, but it’s not all bad – in fact the long weekend brings with it some warmer temperatures.
Starting today, The midway opens under scattered showers and temperatures slightly below normal. The best day appears to be Saturday under a mix of sun and cloud with the mercury rising to 23c – a chance of showers develops Sunday but remaining warm, so that’s not so bad. The rain moves in for holiday Monday following a passage of another cold front that will cut temperatures in half and leave us well below normal (daytime highs should be around 19c) they will only struggle to reach the 10 to 12c mark. Cooler temperatures stay in place until Wednesday and we will see an uptick in temperatures back to normal values and plenty of sun to close out the midway next weekend.
The Pee Wee Midway opens Friday and runs until Sunday May 24.
