Lake Opeongo Weather Cam
Have you ever wondered what the weather is like, right now, in Algonquin Park?
New for April 2017 – Algonquin Outfitters has invested in a weather station and webcam for Lake Opeongo. Now you can view the live weather from Algonquin’s largest lake and even see what’s happening. Weather data and images are captured every few minutes and at the end of the day the photos are compiled into a time-lapse of the entire day. You’ll be able to view our current Lake Opeongo weather data on our website or by downloading the BloomSky app. (See links below)
Where is the weather cam located?
Algonquin Outfitters’ BloomSky weather station, (Storm) and Sky2 Cam, are located on Lake Opeongo in Algonquin Provincial Park, on the roof of the Opeongo Store looking out over Fish Gut Bay. When you visit Lake Opeongo take a look up at the dormer on the roof facing the water, closest to the canoe racks (east side, facing north) and you’ll see two little round globes on poles. These are the weather station sensory units. The weather station is echo friendly too running entirely on solar power.

What does the camera see?
The camera takes a picture about every 5 minutes and captures a very wide angle view of the sky with some of the shoreline across the bay and the boardwalk where our canoes and water taxi sit. The view is very wide angle so to capture the weather. Can it see you? We value your privacy, it can make out figures in the bottom of the frame but can not see faces or any great detail. The camera is mainly designed to capture the sky and the local weather.

What is BloomSky?
“BloomSky is as much a community as it’s a smart weather station. BloomSky aims to change the way people get their weather. They are building a crowdsourcing network to collect and share accurate, hyperlocal weather information. An image of the sky in each location puts the conditions in context as opposed to simply providing numerical weather data. The images give a better understanding of weather conditions and furthers the viewers physical and emotional connection to their weather.”
The people behind BloomSky are weather geeks, outdoor enthusiasts, avid travelers, crowdsourced community drivers, and techy early adopters. They believe in the “Weather Revolution” – a new way of searching and engaging with weather that is finally real-time, hyper-local, accurate, and most importantly, gives us what we need the most – images of our sky.
