Snow coming, but so are warmer temperatures

Despite a wretched start to March, the month looks like it will head in a milder direction soon.

Environment Canada is calling for increasing cloudiness through the day today, with a 30 per cent chance of flurries this afternoon, but that unsettled weather also comes with a slight rise in the temperature — up to a high of -15ºC this afternoon.

Cloudy skies tonight and a continuing chance of flurries will keep it relatively mild overnight, with a low of -19ºC.

Record broken yesterday

Official data compiled by Environment Canada shows that Brandon set a cold-weather record early Monday morning. The mercury bottomed out yesterday at -31.5ºC in the wee hours of the morning.

That's a shade lower than the official record for the day, of -31.1ºC, which was set in 1989.
