Posted by on Thursday, December 24, 2015

Ontario continues to see temperatures well above seasonable, that's bad news for those hoping to go skating on the Rideau Canal.

Before the National Capital Commission opens the skateway the ice must be at least 30 centimetres thick. There is currently no trace of ice.

The NCC currently do not have an anticipated open date.

Temperatures are expected to cool down drastically by Monday.

The Rideau Canal, also known unofficially as the Rideau Waterway, connects the city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, on the Ottawa River to the city of Kingston, Ontario, on Lake Ontario. It is 202 kilometres in length.
