A little bit of north wind won't be enough to wreck this day.
Environment Canada is calling for a high of 15ºC this afternoon — the first time in a long time that Brandon has hit the normal high — with clear and sunny skies through most of the day. A northwest wind is expected at 30 km/h, which may be a bit chilly, but the UV Index is still expected to hit 7, which is considered high.
Take advantage while you can; there are clouds expected this evening, with a 40 per cent chance of showers late this evening or after midnight. Skies should clear overnight, as temperatures drop to 3ºC.
Tomorrow will dawn sunny, and the mercury will rise to 11ºC, but clouds are expected late in the afternoon, with a 30 per cent chance of showers, and 30 km/h winds from the northwest that could at times gust to 50 km/h.
The weekend will be sunny but cooler, with no clouds predicted for either Saturday — high of 7ºC — or Sunday — high of 9ºC.
Monday will see some clouds, with a chance of showers and a high of 10ºC. Futher into next week, Tuesday and Wednesday should see a mix of sun and cloud, with highs of 10–12ºC.
The normal high for this time of year is 15ºC; the normal low is 2ºC.
The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1980, when the temperature reached 28.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1958, when it dropped to -9.4ºC.
