Your daily commute and weather forecast: Apr. 24, 2019

Despite yesterday’s grey and gloomy forecast, we’re looking at a bit of sun every day for the next week

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 7 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 85 per cent humidity and 14 km/h winds from the south.

We can expect to see a mix of sun and cloud this afternoon with a high of 15 C and clear skies overnight with a low of 5 C. After that, we’re looking at increasing cloudiness Thursday afternoon with a high of 18 C and cloudy periods tomorrow night with a low of 6 C.

Despite yesterday’s forecast showing clouds rolling in by Friday, we’re looking at a bit of sun every day this forecast, which is, we think, a very pleasant surprise!
