Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Back in the deep freeze

Thank goodness it's a short week, because it'll be below normal the whole way.

With temperatures plunging overnight into the -30s, even light winds are enough to stir up a morning wind chill warning.

Environment Canada says that an wind chill of up to -43 this morning sparked the warning. At wind chill values around -40, frostbite can occur on exposed skin in less than 10 minutes. Wind chills should moderate above the minus 40 warning threshold by mid to late morning as temperatures climb and winds slowly diminish.

Sunny skies today should being an afternoon temperature of about -21 C, with winds up to about 15 km/h.

Tonight, with a continuing breeze, temperatures will drop to about -28 C overnight, taking the wind chill down to -39 or so.

The chill begins to release tomorrow, with a forecast high of -17 C, and increasing cloudiness in the morning.

Thursday's high of -12 C will be followed by -9 C on Friday.

And that should continue for the weekend, with a mix of sun and cloud, and temperatures around -9 C. Monday could be a degree warmer, if the forecast holds.

The normal high for this time of year is -6 C; the normal low is -17 C.
