A series of severe thunderstorms that ploughed across Westman overnight and early this morning should be nothing but a memory before lunch.
Environment Canada says that skies will clear late this morning, after a few lingering showers, as winds die down and temperatures begin their rise to today's high of 21ºC.
Clear skies tonight will take the thermometer down to 5ºC.
Tomorrow will be sunny through the early part of the day, with a high of 22ºC, but increasing cloudiness is expected in the afternoon. It will rain tomorrow night, starting late in the evening.
Sunday will see a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 22ºC, followed by just about the same — a degree cooler — for holiday Monday.
Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be sunny, with highs near 23ºC. At this point Thursday looks like a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 20ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 21ºC; the normal low is 9ºC.
The hottest it's ever been on an Aug. 29 was in 2012, when it tagged 36.9ºC. The coldest ever was in 2007, when it was 1.5ºC.
