Brandon Sun - ONLINE EDITION

Sun coming out, heat coming too

While there's no news about any itsy-bitsy spider, the sun is definitely coming out to dry up all the rain.

Environment Canada says that we are in for a hot, sunny stretch — welcome relief for sodden Westman residents wringing themselves out after a record-setting wet spring and bracing for still-rising river levels.

Today will see a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 22ºC, but don't let the slightly-below-normal temperatures fool you — the UV Index will hit 8, which is considered very high.

A few lingering clouds tonight will be the last we'll see for a week, with an overnight low os 9ºC that you may want to enjoy if you like things cool, because temperatures spike after that.

Thursday will be sunny and 26ºC; Friday, sunny and 27ºC.

The weekend will be a scorcher, with a high of 33ºC predicted for Saturday and 29ºC predicted for Sunday. That's close to a record for Saturday.

Into next week, temperatures moderate a bit, but they are still sunny and warm. Clear skies are predicted for Monday and Tuesday, with temperatures of 25ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 24ºC; the normal low is 12ºC.

The hottest it's ever been on a July 2 was back in 1949. That year it hit 32.8ºC. The coldest ever was in 1967, when it dropped to 3.3ºC.
