Another record high in the forecast today. Tomorrow’s our last warm, sunny day before seeing rain clouds

Good morning! It was a sunny start to the day at 8 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 60 per cent humidity and 14 km/h winds from the north.

Today, we’re looking at yet another record high – for the third day in a row – at 23 C, beating the 1960 record of 22.2 C for March 20. That follows record temperatures on Monday and Tuesday. But this heat won’t last – after dropping to a low of 9 C tonight, we’ve got a high of 19 C in the forecast for tomorrow, with a low of 8 C and it’s only downhill from there.

Fortunately, we won’t be seeing it drop back down to single-digit highs like before this heat streak, with Saturday expected to reach a high of 13 C before the temperatures start to rise a bit again. That includes hitting a high of 18 C with sunnyi skies on Monday.

Friday, the clouds are set to roll in, with rain overnight and during the day on Saturday, followed by a cloudy Sunday. We’ve got a brief sunny break on Monday before getting back into the clouds and a chance of showers on Tuesday.

Currently, visibility is 24 kilometres.
