Morning has broken (and summer is back!)

Hot weather continues til Wed.

Early morning sunlight touched the rooftop of St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Virden Monday morning, revealing the beauty of fieldstone and fall foliage.

Even though the leaves are turning and nights are cooling down, a little bit of summer has returned to southwestern Manitoba. A mini heatwave kicked off Sunday with temperatures reaching to 31C in the Virden area.

Better get the kids’ shorts and flip flops out of storage; the Weather Network is calling for a high of 30C today (Monday) and 31C tomorrow in the southwest region.

After that, things normalize for the rest of the week, with daily highs between 18 and 23C and showers and/or thunderstorms called for Wednesday through to Saturday.
