Wet today, but it could be worse

It's cool and rainy today — with tomorrow's promised sun now pushed back to Friday — but it compared to the forecast further north, it's downright pleasant.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for northern parts of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, with half a foot of snow or more expected to fall today and tomorrow.

That makes Brandon's rainy forecast look a little more springlike.

Today will be cool, with a high of 8ºC this afternoon, and periods of rain through the day. Winds will pick up this afternoon from the north, reaching 30 km/h.

The rain will taper off after midnight, as wil the wind, but cloudy skies will remain. The overnight low will be 2ºC.

Cloudy skies tomorrow herald even more periods of rain in the afternoon, with northerly winds at 20 km/h gusting to 40 km/h through the day. Tomorrow's high will be 9ºC. Winds should die down late in the evening, and skies will then clear.

Friday should be sunny, with a high of 15ºC, followed by a sunny Saturday as well, with a high of 14ºC.

Sunday, however, will bring more clouds, with a 40 per cent chance of showers and a high of 10ºC.

Into next week, the prediction is for a mix of sun and cloud on both Monday and Tuesday, with daytime highs of around 15ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 17ºC; the normal low is 4ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1953, when it reached 31.1ºC. The coldest ever was in 2002, when it was -6.8ºC.
