Cool and cloudy, slight chance of showers later

The mercury remains stubbornly stuck well below normal — for today and for the rest of the week.

Environment Canada says that Brandon can expect mainly cloudy skies today, with a 30 per cent chance of showers this afternoon and a high of 9ºC. Winds from the northwest at 30 km/h will keep blowing today until lightening up early this evening.

Skies will clear tonight around midnight, as temperatures drop to -2ºC before morning.

More clouds are expected tomorrow, with northerly winds at 20 km/h and a high of 9ºC.

Sun, however, is in the forecast for Thursday, although it won't help temperatures for a while. The Thursday high will again be 9ºC.

Friday, the forecast calls for clear and sunny skies, with a high of 12ºC, followed by more sun and a high of 15ºC on Saturday.

Sunday will be the peak of the week, with a high of 18ºC and a mix of sun and cloud.

But the long weekend won't all be nice — the forecast for holiday Victoria Day on Monday at this point calls for a 60 per cent chance of showers and a high of 16ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 19ºC; the normal low is 5ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1977, when it was 32.8ºC. The coldest ever was exactly 10 years ago, in 2004, when temperatures dropped to -10.2ºC and there was a record-setting 25 cm of snow on the ground after a storm the day before.
