Large icicles hang from the eaves of a home on 15th Street in Brandon last week.

Get ready for slushy streets and dripping icicles as daytime temperatures are expected to hover withina few degrees of zero for the nect few days.

Despite morning fog, Environment Canada is calling for sunny skies as far as the forecast can see, with enough afternoon warmth to start some snowmelt.

This afternoon should see a high of -4 C, with a moderate UV index of 4.

A few clouds tonight won't keep the temperature from dropping to about -17 C, but that's quite a bit warmer than last night, when it dropped to -24 C.

We should be leaving the -20s behind, though, with the rest of the week.

Wednesday should see a high of -3 C, then 0 C on Thursday.

Sunny skies and above-zero temperatures are expected for Easter weekend, with 2 C on Good Friday and on Saturday, then a high of 4 C on Easter Sunday.

Those with Monday off should see a high of 1 C, with continuins sunny skies. Overnight lows through the weekend should be around -8 C.

The normal high for this time of year is 4 C, and the normal low is -8 C.

The warmest it's ever been on this day was in 1973, at 18.3 C. But in 1964, temperatures dropped to a record low of -29.4 C.

A year ago today it was 9 C in the afternoon, and -6 C overnight.
