As we creep up on the beginning of June, we are reminded of our favorite bedtime story from back when we were just a little column -- Goldilocks and the Three Bears. For you hip, young people, this is a story wherein a juvenile delinquent with long, blond hair breaks into a house belonging to a family of bears, then proceeds to wreak havoc by eating their breakfast. As the story goes, the first bowl of porridge was "too hot," the second bowl was "too cold," but the third bowl was "juuuuuust right," so Goldilocks ate it all up then slept in all their beds and probably left her greasy fingerprints on the bear family's big-screen TV for good measure. The point I am trying to make is this classic kids' story illustrates what our weather picture will look like this weekend. Just try not to think about Goldilocks when you read this description from my buddy, Dale Marciski, from Environment Canada: "We're in kind of a flow of milder air coming from the Pacific. We don't have those blasts of cold, Arctic air coming down, and we don't have a blast of hot air from the south. "For most of Manitoba, it's looking fairly decent for the weekend. Not too hot. Not too cold. It's very close to normal. You could say it's going to be just right."
