With a wind chill warning this morning, Brandon is setting the stage for a chilly week, as temperatures will stick stubbornly below normal for as long as the forecasters can see.
Environment Canada recorded a morning low below -30ºC at 8 a.m. this morning, cold enough that even winds of just 19 km/h were enough to push the wind chill ot -43.
This afternoon, under mainly sunny skies, temperatures should rise to -20ºC, but winds will pick up a bit, too, hitting 30 km/h from the northwest around noon. That'll keep the wind chill around -33.
Partly cloudy skies tonight herald a chance of flurries overnight, despite the chill. Temperatures will fall to a low of -28ºC before morning.
Tomorrow should see a mix of sun and cloud, with a continuing chance of flurries in the early morning, but clearing after that. The high tomorrow should be -18ºC.
Wednesday will be the warm spot in the week: sunny, with a high of -12ºC, followed by more sun on Thursday and a high of -18ºC.
Friday should see a mix of sun and cloud, with a moderate chance of flurries and a high of -22ºC.
At this point, the weekend forecast calls for more sun, but still cold, with highs of around -17ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is -5ºC. The normal low is -16ºC.
The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1958, when it reached 6.1ºC. The coldest ever was in 1955, when it was -38.9ºC.
