A stretch of bone-chilling weather is about to at least temporarily be a thing of the past, with an unusual overnight warming of temperatures from Monday night into Tuesday morning leading to an extended period of minus single-digit highs.
According to Environment and Climate Change Canada’s forecast for Brandon, Monday night will see an overnight low of minus 12 which is to rise during the overnight hours to just minus eight in the lead-up to sunrise on Tuesday morning followed by a daytime high on Tuesday of minus four.
The seasonally mild temps are expected to continue at least through the weekend with forecast highs ranging from minus seven to minus three over the proceeding days.
Depending on how seriously one takes long-range forecasts, the milder weather could continue for a meaningful period beyond that with The Weather Network’s extended 14-day trend having similar high temperatures continuing all the way through the following weekend into early February.
The average high for coming week is normally minus 12.
Just last Thursday Brandon saw temperatures into the minus 30s and “feels like” wind chill temps bordering -50. Last year, January 24th kicked off a stretch of 40 consecutive days where temperatures did not rise about minus 10.
