Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Sunny skies for most of long weekend

The sun is expected to shine every day of the upcoming August long weekend, but Westman is expecting a short break in the sunshine on Saturday.

“This weekend will be pretty average temperatures for this time of year,” said Doug Gillham, a meteorologist with the Weather Network. “There is a front moving through southern Manitoba on Saturday, but the sun and temperature is expected to bounce back.”

Friday will be the warmest day, in the upper twenties. Unfortunately, Saturday will be warm with a period of rain and potential thunderstorms.

Looking back to last year’s high of 14 C and rainy weather on Sunday, this long weekend will easily exceed those highs settling around the mid-twenties.

There is a second front on Sunday that will hopefully stay further south and keep Brandon dry, but there is always a chance of it moving into the area.

If your long weekend plans are taking you up to Clear Lake, Gillham said the Sunday front shouldn’t affect your day.

“Some people want it hot, others want it cold,” he said. “These close to medium temperatures will hopefully make a lot of people happy.”

Holiday Monday is expected to see higher temperatures again just higher than 25 C.

“I think it is safe to say Brandon won’t be close to any records this year,” Gillham said.

The record high for Aug. 1 was set in 1989, when the temperature soared to 38.2 C.

A very chilly low for the long weekend dates back all the way to 1978 at 3.4 C.
