More very cold temperatures, with possible snow

It's not quite adding insult to injury, but Westman faces a bitter winter chill today — plus the possibility of flurries.

Environment Canada says that morning temperatures dropped down to -30ºC around 7 a.m. in Brandon, and with winds around 30 km/h, that's pushing the wind chill to an extreme -43.

It's not really going to warm up much today: the afternoon high should be just -21ºC, although the winds should drop off by around noon.

Increasing cloudiness is also expected near noon, with a 40 per cent chance of flurries late this afternoon and this evening.

Cloudy skies are expected tonight, with a low of -24ºC, although things should clear up tomorrow morning.

A bit of a breeze is expected tomorrow, with a high of -20ºC.

Wedesday will stay cold, with sunny skies but a high of -20ºC.

A brief respite on Thursday will see a high of -15ºC, before it gets cold again. The Friday high will be -20ºC, and there could be more flurries that day.

At this point, Saturday and Sunday look to see highs of -24ºC and then -18ºC respectively.

The normal high for this time of year is -9ºC. The normal low is -18ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1974, when it was 7.8ºC. The coldest ever was in 1977, when it was -35.2ºC.
