In the wake of a hot, humid day that turned violent last night, Brandon is in store for another blast of heat today.
Environment Canada is calling for a mix of sun and cloud today with a high of 27ºC as Brandonites and city workers fan out across the city to clean up downed trees today. Northwest winds at 20 km/h might help things feel a bit better, but put on the sunscreen because the UV Index should hit 8, which is very high.
Increaasing cloudiness is expected before tomorrow morning, with a low of 13ºC.
Tomorrow will dawn cloudy, with a 30 per cent chance of showers in the morning and showers guaranteed in the afternon, with the risk of a thunderstorm later in the day. Northerly winds are expected through the afternoon, at 30 km/h, with a daytime high of 21ºC.
After that, though, the weather should settle down a bit. The rest of the week is forecast to be sunny and warm, with no clouds at all. Daytime highs from Tuesday through Saturday are predicted to be 25–26ºC, with the exception of Friday, which could hit 28ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 25ºC. The normal low is 12ºC.
The hottest it's ever been on a July 6 was in 1981, when it hit 36.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1952, when ittouched 2.2ºC.
