Hey there, time traveller!

Weather looks like it'll be hit-and-miss all week long.
Environment Canada is calling for cloudy skies and morning showers today, with up to 5 mm of rain expected in total. The rain will stop, but it'll stay cloudy after lunch, with a bit of a northwest breeze picking up early this afternoon. Temperatures should reach a high of 18ºC.
Skies will clear late this evening, but winds will gust up to 40 km/h at times, before dying down tonight. Overnight, the low will reach 10ºC.
Tuesday will be warmer, with mainly sunny skies and a high of 24ºC.
But rain is expected again on Wednesday, which will see showers through the day and a high of 19ºC.
The sun'll come out once more on Thursday, pushing temperatures back up to 23ºC, but Friday will end the work week on a cool note. It'll stay sunny, but the Friday high is expected to be just 17ºC.
At this point, the weekend forecast calls for daytime high temperatures in the highs teens, with a ix of sun and cloud on Saturday followed by sun on Sunday.
The normal high for this time of year is 21ºC. The normal low is 9ºC.
The hottest it's ever been on this date was in 1973, when temperatures reached 31.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1969, when they dropped to -1.7ºC.
On this date in 1953, Brandon was drenched. The airport weather station recorded 80 mm of rain, making this the wettest June day in the city's history — but a weather station in the city recorded even more, measuring the rainfall at 102.9 mm, which is the most rain ever recorded in Brandon. And if that wasn't enough, it rained another 35 mm the next day. By comparison, on many June dates, 35 mm would be enough rain to set a record.
