Brandon woke to a balmy -2ºC this morning, and it should be mild all day long, but it's a one-day reprieve from normal January temperatures.

Environment Canada says that today's high will be -1ºC, with light snow falling through much of the middle of the day. About 2 cm in total is expected. Westerly winds at 30 km/h could cause some visibility issues on the highways.

Skies should clear this evening, as winds drop, but the temperatures will follow. Tonight's low will be -23ºC, with wind chills in the -30s.

Increasing cloudiness is expected through the day on Saturday, with light snow in the afternoon and a high of -12ºC.

Sunday will be sunny and windy, and a little bit cooler, with a high of -19ºC and likely a significant wind chill.

Cold starts the work week, with a high Monday of -24ºC and Tuesday of -20ºC, although sun and clear skies are expected both days.

Sunny skies continue through Wednesday and Thursday, with milder afternoon highs of around -11ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is -11ºC; the normal low is -22ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1973, when it was 5.6ºC. The coldest ever was in 1966, when it was -41.7ºC.
