RIDEAU CANAL SKATEWAY CLOSED DUE TO MILD TEMPERATUES
1/11/2018 2:29:57 PM
Ottawa's Rideau Canal has been closed, just a week after it opened. The National Capital Commission says people should stay off the ice for the time being, since freezing rain and warmer temperatures could make it unsafe. A January thaw is bad news for the skateway. Today's forecast calls for a high of 6 degrees with drizzle. However, temperatures are expected to dip to minus 13 Saturday and Minus 19 on Sunday, meaning the canal closure might be a short one.
