Mark the date. Tuesday, March 12 at 3pm Environment Canada data indicates that Brandon has reached 0.6 degrees. That marks the first time in 68 days that we’ve moved above the freezing mark.
As it turns out that’s pretty much bang on what should be normal this time of the year (minus 1) but after a well below normal February and early March I’ve gotta say it feels a little bit like a vacation without the price of a plane ticket. It seems like forever ago, but this is actually the second day of 2019 to touch above freezing after January 3rd’s high of plus 1.2 degrees.
As of right now the forecast for the rest of the week is showing similar highs at around zero plus or minus two degrees which should bring on the spring melt and all the puddles and potholes that go along with it!
