Though the sights and sounds of nature scream that fall is near, a three day heat wave brings bonus summer-feeling weather to the area beginning Sunday with a forecast high in Brandon according to Environment Canada of a balmy 28 degrees.
There’s been consensus for several days that Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will feel more like July than mid-September, with forecast highs bouncing for the three days anywhere between 27 and 32 in the days leading up. Most recently Monday is called to reach 30 degrees and Tuesday 31 with humidex values on those days pushing into the upper-30s.
Also jumping off the page are overnight lows on Monday and Tuesday, which are expected to be way above seasonal with Monday’s low of 16 being near the average *high* for this time of the year of 18.
Of the three days, Sunday is the most likely candidate to set a record with the hottest September 15 recorded in Brandon since 1941 being 2009’s 29.3 degrees according to Environment Canada data. For the same to happen on Monday in would need to exceed 35.2 (1979) and Tuesday’s bar would be 34.8 (1989), neither of which we’re quite expected to see not that you’ll catch many folks complaining. In Sunday's corner in the push toward that record is The Weather Network's forecast, which calls for an extra degree in its high of 29.
High temps are expected to dip to low-to-mid 20s by midweek, which would still be above seasonal over some of the final official days of summer.
Though there’s a good chance that if you’re able you’ll be outside enjoying it, more details on the unusual weather to start the week can be followed on the weather page at https://ebrandon.ca/weather.aspx and the subsequent links from that page.
