Dramatic improvement in day's weather

Sunny skies and milder temperatures are sprawled across the next week's worth of forecasts — a marked improvement from the gloomy outlook yesterday.

Brandon saw just over 7 mm of precicptation drizzled on it yesterday, including nearly half a centimetre of snow, and yesterday's extended outlook called for plenty more cloud, but today is a different story. There will be plenty of sun this afternoon that should dry up all those puddles, and double-digit temperatures look to be the norm for the next week or so.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 10ºC this afternoon, under mainly sunny skies, although a bit of northeast wind might make things feel a little cooler than that. The UV Index will reach a level of 6, which is considered high.

Clear skies will send temperatures down to -2ºC overnight, but tomorrow will also be sunny and mild, with a high of 10ºC and similar winds to today.

Thursday looks to be the week's warm spot, with a high of 12ºC under sunny skies. Friday will end the week with a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 11ºC.

The weekend will be slightly cooler, but still pleasant, with sun on Saturday and a high of 7ºC then a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday and a high of 9ºC.

At this point, Monday will start next week off with more sun and cloud mix, and a high of 10ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 15ºC, the normal low is 2ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1952, when temperatures were a scorching 31.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1958, when they were a freezing -13.3ºC.
