If you have a day off work coming to you, cashing it in today would be a good idea.

Once the pea-soup fog lifts, lots of sun and double-digit warmth is expected throughout southern Manitoba on Monday. Winnipeg could be on track to break its record of 13.2 C, set last year.

Then the rains come. Winnipeg will get soaked Tuesday and Wednesday, but the drenching will help clean away some of that spring grime.
