Your daily commute and weather forecast: Feb. 5, 2019

No break from the cold weather anytime soon, but sunny skies today and tomorrow

Good morning! It was a chilly start to the day at -8 C with mainly clear skies as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 43 per cent humidity and 13 km/h winds from the east-northeast.

And we can expect to see more of the blue skies today, but we won’t get any break from the cold anytime soon. We’ve got a high of -4 C today, dropping to -9 C overnight – about four degrees shy of a record, according to Environment Canada. And make sure you’ve got a jacket today, with windchill to feel like -17 C this morning and -10 this afternoon. Environment Canada warns of risk of frostbite.
