Yes.

Assume today is Sunday. The first sentence simply says that the "certain day" was the day before yesterday, or Friday. On friday the parents said that they would go on a picnic on sunday (today) if it doesn't rain. Since it hasn't rained since the day before yesterday (friday), then the family did go on a picnic today.

If I said that in three days' time it would be a Thursday, I am sure that most of you would have no difficulty telling me that today was a Monday.

Try this one then. Yesterday was two days before Monday. What day is it today? Yes, you're right again. It's Sunday. Do you get the idea?

Now let's tackle a similar question from The National Mathematics Contest (1991) Paper:

Three days ago, yesterday was the day before Sunday. What day will it be tomorrow?
