Your daily commute and weather forecast: Dec. 20, 2018

Wind warning today, with gusts up to 90 km/h. Heavy congestion in Langley, Burnaby

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 8 C as of 7:26 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 88 per cent humidity and 17 km/h winds from the east-southeast.

We’re likely to see some showers today (60 per cent chance), as well as overnight, albeit with a bit of moon shining through. But you might want to tie down your patio furniture – we’ve got a wind warning today from Environment Canada, with wind becoming 70 km/h, gusting to 90, early this afternoon. High today of 12 C and a low of 2.

After that, we may get a bit of sunshine tomorrow, with a mix of sun and cloud and a high of 6 C.

But don’t get your hopes up for a sunny Christmas – after tomorrow, we’re back to rain, and while it likely won’t be a white Christmas, either, we may see a few flakes falling from the sky overnight Christmas Eve and Day.

Currently, visibility is 24 kilometres.

On clear roads and driving at the speed limit, a drive from the Abbotsford News building to Downtown Vancouver would take 50 minutes.

Today, your daily commute time as of 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20, 2018 is one hour 42 minutes, with heavy congestion along Highway 1 in Langley, apparently caused by a vehicle stall.

In Burnaby, traffic is still backed up, but the vehicle stall that appears to have caused it is now clear, according to Drive BC.
