Hot day today — more coming

If the forecast holds, today will reach close to 30ºC — a mark Brandon will break soon enough.

Environment Canada is calling for a high of 29ºC today, with mainly sunny skies that will bring a UV Index of 8, which is considered very high. A bit of a breeze, from the west at 20 km/h, will help keep things tolerable.

A few more clouds tonight bring the chance of showers this evening, with the risk even of a thunderstorm. That could put a damper on plans to continue fogging for mosquitoes. Winds will die down this evening, though, and temperatures will stay around 14ºC overnight.

Tomorrow looks to be mainly sunny, with a high of 27ºC although there will be a 30 km/h wind from the southwest in the morning, swinging around to the northwest late in the evening.

The weekend looks glorious, with sunny skies on Saturday and a high of 26ºC, followed by a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday, with a high of 28ºC.

Into next week is where the hot heat really craks up.  At this point, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are all predicted to exceed the 30ºC mark, with crystal clear blue skies and and full-on sun. The hottest day is predicted to be Tuesday, with a high of 33ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 25ºC; the normal low is 12ºC.

The hottest it's ever been on a July 17 was in 1949, when it hit 35ºC. The chilliest ever on this date was in 2000, when temperatures bottomed out at 3.6ºC.
