Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Heat streak starts today

Temper those shivers from the last couple of cool days, because the sun is coming out — and it's on fire.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 24ºC today and that's the lowest it'll be for at least a week.

A mix of sun and cloud this afternoon won't stop the UV Index from hitting 8, which is considered very high. Partly cloudy skies tonight will see overnight lows dip to 10ºC.

But temperatures get cranked up again tomorrow, which will see mainly sunny skies and a high of 27ºC, despite a westerly wind at 20 km/h that will pick up late in the afternoon.

Thursday wil be sunny and hot, with a high of 30ºC, followed by more sun and a high of 29ºC on Friday.

Saturday will feel a little cooler, perhaps, with a high of 27ºC under clear and sunny skies, but heat returns for Sunday, with a high of 30ºC and still no clouds to speak of.

At this point, the hot trend looks to stretch into next week, with a high of 31ºC predicted for Monday.

The normal high for this time of year is 26ºC; the normal low is 13ºC.

The hottest it's ever been on a July 15th was in 1975, when temperatures reached 33.9ºC. The coolest ever on this date was in 1951, when they dipped to 6.1ºC.
