Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 29, 2019

Another day of sunshine today, so enjoy it while it lasts. Heavy congestion past the Port Mann Bridge

Good morning! We had clear skies to start the day at 2 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 58 per cent humidity and 16 km/h winds from the north.

We’ve got a mainly sunny day in store for us, with a high of 8 C and a low overnight of 1 C with partly cloudy skies, leading into a mainly cloudy Wednesday with a high, again, of 8 C. And after this little stretch of sun, we’re back into the clouds and rain after that, with a cloudy Wednesday night and a low of 3 C.

Starting Thursday, we’re looking at some level of precipitation through to Monday, whether it’s a chance of showers, rain or a chance of flurries, albeit with a bit of sun peaking through on Saturday. Highs are expected to range from 5 to 9 C, with lows of 0 to 5 C.

Currently, visibility is 48 kilometres.

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

After crossing the Port Mann Bridge, you’re looking at a mix of heavy and light congestion.
