There's a high chance of showers or thunderstorms to kick things off this morning, and they'll be back again tonight, but in the meantime, the weather looks pretty good.
Environment Canada says that morning cloudiness will bring possible showers or even a thunderstorm this morning, but it should clear up around 10–11 a.m. this morning.
Skies will then clear up, pretty much, as temperatures soar to a high of 27ºC this afternoon. a bit of a breeze, at 30 km/h from the southeast, may cool things down a bit, but the humidity will bring a Humidex of 30–33 through much of the late afternoon, and the UV Index will hit 8, which is considered very high.
Hot humid days often end with a storm, and today will be no exception — clouds are expected to roll in around 9–10 p.m. tonight, with thunderstorms overnight.
Temperatures should dip to 13ºC before tomorrow morning, but the storms should end before dawn. Tomorrow will see a mix of sun and cloud through most of the day, with westerly winds at 30 km/h most of the afternoon. Tomorrow's high will be 24ºC, and there's a 40 per cent chance of showers in the evening.
Those showers stick around on Saturday, which will be cloudy and rainy with a high of 23ºC. Sunday should see clouds, but will stay dry. The high on Sunday will be 23ºC.
Sun returns next week, as does the heat. Monday will see clear skies and a high of 26ºC. Tuesday and Wednesday should also be sunny, with the high both of days of 29ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 25ºC; the normal low is 13ºC.
The hottest it's ever been on a July 24 was in 2007, when it hit 34.5ºC. The coldest ever was in 1962, when it hit 6.2ºC.
On this date in 1973, Brandon was soaked with 81.5 mm of rain — the most ever recorded on any summer day.
