Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 10, 2019

Some showers today, and then four days with blue skies to follow. Heavy congestion past the Port Mann

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 10 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 86 per cent humidity and 23 km/h winds from the south-southwest.

Today, we can expect to see showers in the morning, and cloudy during the day, with a 40 per cent chance of showers in the afternoon with gusty winds and a high of 12. Overnight, it’s partly cloudy with a 40 per cent chance of showers.

And then, if you recall the good weather news from yesterday – well, it just got expedited. Instead of a bit of sun over the late weekend, we can now expect to see a mix of sun and cloud tomorrow and Saturday, with highs of 10 and 9 C and lows of 3 and 2 C, before getting to clear skies Sunday and Monday, with highs of 9 and 7 C.
