Weather in Thunder Bay - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    Wind chill warning for
    City of Thunder Bay continued

    Extreme wind chill values for tonight and Sunday morning.

    This is a warning that extreme wind chill conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

    All snowsqualls have shifted southwards out of the regions.

    A very cold Arctic airmass has settled over northwestern Ontario. Combined with winds up to 15 km/h this will result in wind chill values in the minus 40 to minus 47 range for most of Northern Ontario tonight and Sunday morning.

      Well, the good news is that the groundhog didn't see his shadow, so we're almost out of it? I'm feeling lucky in southern Ontario, only -15 overnight, with high winds that blew out the pilot light on my water heater. Firing now for ciabatta later. BRRRR.

        Nothing about the weather, again. I suppose that many of us cast our lines pretty far looking for recipes of all kinds, and the net lets us go global. Problem is, sometimes I at least get caught up in weight conversions that can deliver ready made mistakes when going from metric to imperial or vice versa. Here's a site for the math challenged out there: weight conversion - kilograms, pounds, grams, ounzes @ metric conversions . org. Just found it, and it's already saved my skin.

          Brrrr - that is cold So you don't do baking in the skivvies eh?

          Seems like you need a Hogan's Hero Solution to get from the house to the oven. Oh bummer forgot about that high water table. Maybe the Bridges of Ontario.

          Coversions are always a stumbling block especially when one part of the world measure bas mass and another uses force. I have been using a program by Josh for the last 10 or so years. I put an Icon on my window that launches the program quickly. Convert @ joshmadison.com

            We finally had a break in the weather in Denver (we have had tons of snow and no warm weather to melt it), it got up to 50 degrees so I fired and baked some sourdough (using the new mixer as well). Very satifsying. It did take an extra 15-20 mins to get the dome white. I suspect because it has been so cold...

              We have travelled from Florence (30s), to DC (20s) to Monterey, CA (hit 70 yesterday). That's a shock to the system.
