Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Cool weekend ahead

Summer, we hardly knew ya.

It's cool and wet today, and it'll be cool and wet through the weekend, according to Environment Canada.

Today's forecast calls for cloudy skies and a 30 per cent chance of showers, with a temperature that'll get to just 18ºC. That's sweater weather, despite this still being August.

But today is about the warmest it'll be until the middle of next week, with temperatures stubbornly stuck below normal for several days.

Tonight, continuing cloudy skies and a 30 per cent chance of showers are expected, with a low of 12ºC.

Tomorrow will see clouds in the morning, with a chance of showers, then periods of rain late in the afternoon, including the risk of a thunderstorm in the evening. Northeast winds at 20 km/h will pick up to 40 km/h, gusting to 60 km/h late in the afternoon, with temperatures no better than 16ºC.

Sunday's forecast calls for showers and wind, with a high of 17ºC. Then more showers are expected on Monday with a high of just 15ºC.

Tuesday will see a bit of sun, mixed with cloud, and a high of 18ºC. Wednesday will finally see clear skies, but the temperatures will stay low, at 19ºC. 

At this point, Thursday looks to be the first day to return to normal. The prediction for that day is a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 23ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 23ºC; the normal low is 10ºC.

The hottest it's ever been on an Aug. 22 was in 1969, when it was 35.6ºC. The coldest ever was just two years before that, in 1967, when it was 1.7ºC.
