Just a lot of grey in the forecast ahead. Clouds and plenty of rain coming our way

Good morning! It was a little wet to start the day at 9 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 97 per cent humidity and 11 km/h winds from the northeast.

Today, we’ve got rain in the forecast, with the high only creeping up to 13 C, before dropping down to 7 C overnight with periods of rain. And the following week doesn’t deviate too much from that.
