Your daily commute and weather forecast: Apr. 26, 2019

Breezy commute today and a stretch of sunny skies, with a few clouds mixed in there, the next few days

Good morning! It was a mainly sunny start to the day at 7 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 84 per cent humidity and 13 km/h winds from the south-southeast.

We can expect to see some clouds mix in with the sun this afternoon, as the wind picks up, with a high of 16 C. Tonight, we’re looking at partly cloudy skies with a chance of showers and a windy evening, with a low of 8 C. That chance of showers, with a mix of sun and cloud, is expected to continue into tomorrow morning, with a windy morning and early afternoon, before the skies clear up overnight tomorrow. High of 13 C and a low of 3 C.
