Sunny and cold

Polar vortex, thy name is ice.

Environment Canada is predicted a week's worth of very cold — but sunny — days ahead for Brandon and area, with daytime highs as cold or colder than the normal overnight low for this time of year.

Today should be mainly sunny, with a bit of wind from the northwest at 30 km/h. The high will be -14ºC, but wind chills early this morning could be as low as -39. That should moderate to a chill of about -26 by afternoon.

Tonight will see just a few clouds, with continuing norhtwest winds at about 20 km/h and a low of -25ºC.

Tomorrow will be sunny and cold, with more wind and a high of -16ºC.

Sunny skies continues Sunday and Monday, with highs of around -18ºC both days. Tuesday will be colder, with a high of -21ºC, although it will stay sunny.

Further into next week, sunny skies continue Wednesday and Thursday, with a high of -18ºC on Wednesday and -20ºC on Thursday.

The normal high for this time of year is -6ºC. The normal low is -16ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1984, when it was 9.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1956, when it was -34.4ºC.
