Chilly today and through the weekend

Canada geese congregate in a snow-cleared area of a field southwest of Brandon on Wednesday. Thursday marked the first day of spring, although it won't feel like it for a while.

Canada geese congregate in a snow-cleared area of a field southwest of Brandon on Wednesday. Thursday marked the first day of spring, although it won't feel like it for a while.

Spring, we hardly knew ya.

Despite all but two days in the past two weeks reaching temperatures within a few degrees of zero, yesterday's snow flurries heralds the fact that the chill of winter is returning today.

Environment Canada says temperatures will actually fall today, from a pre-dawn mark of -13ºC down a couple of degrees to -15ºC this afternoon. That despite clearing skies later this morning and a drop in the wind.

Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight, as winds continue to fade, with an overnight low of -24ºC.

Saturday should be sunny, with a bit of wind in the early afternoon, and a high of -14ºC. The wind chill could get to -25, but the rays of the sun will make it feel warmer than that.

Sunday should be sunny, with a high of -12ºC, followed by a mix of sun and cloud on Monday and a high of -9ºC, which will come with a possible chance of fluries.

Things should improve a little after Monday. The Tuesday forecast calls for sun with a high of -2ºC and then a mix of sun and cloud for Thursday with a high of -1ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 2ºC, the nomal low is -9ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1945, when temperatures reached 19.4ºC. The coldest ever was in 1974, when they dropped to -28.9ºC.
