Despite milder temperatures today, winter still lurks in the air.
Environment Canada is calling for a mix of sun and cloud through today with the possibility of a few flurries this morning, then a high of 1ºC this afternoon.
Clear skies are expected tonight, with a low os -11ºC, followed by increasing cloudiness through tomorrow, with a high again on 1ºC. However, there's a good chance of flurries tomorrow in the late afternoon or evening, as winds pick up to 30 km/h from the northwest.
A chill comes on Friday, with sunny skies but a high of -11ºC.
The weekend is worse. Despite continuing sun, the high on Saturday will be -13ºC and on Sunday -10ºC. Early-morning lows through the weekend will be as cold as -26ºC.
The cold air is expected to linger into next week. At this point, the forecast predicts a mix of sun and cloud for Monday, with a high of -7ºC, followed by sun and a high of -9ºC on Tuesday.
The normal high for this time of year is 1ºC; the normal low is -10ºC.
Just a couple of years ago, Brandon set the record for the warmest March 19 ever; it hit 22.6ºC on this date in 2012.
But a decade earlier, it was a different story. The coldest it's ever been recorded on this date was in 2002, when it dropped to -28.1ºC.
