Ideal weather conditions are developing for maple sap

Weather News

If your pancakes are in need of some fresh maple syrup you’re almost in luck. We are entering the time of year many of you get excited about, fresh maple syrup made locally!

Ideal conditions are developing over the next week for the maple sap to flow and that’s when you get highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s. Temperature fluctuations above and below freezing cause pressure changes in the trees and those pressure changes cause a pressure buildup. When temperatures get above freezing that pressure buildup causes the sap to flow.

Things have to be just right in many ways. If it’s too hot for too long or too cold for too long then the flow stops. You really need the temperature fluctuation to be about 10 degrees above and below freezing and we expect a lot of that over the next week.
