Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 30, 2019

We could be seeing some flurries in the late weekend or early next week, according to Environment Canada

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 1 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 72 per cent humidity and 2 km/h winds from the north.

After a couple of days with a bit of sunshine, we’re starting to see the tail end, with a mainly cloudy day and a high of 8 C today, before getting into a cloudy night with a low of 1 C.

After that, we’re looking at a few days of rain or a chance of showers with highs of 8 C and lows of 3 to 5 C before getting back into potential snow territory.

Of course, we’ve seen these forecasts before, this winter, so take it with a grain of salt. But Environment Canada suggests a 60 per cent chance of rain showers or flurries Sunday during the day with a high of 3 C, before getting to a 60 per cent chance of flurries overnight with a low of -4. Similarly, we’ve got a chance of flurries Monday with a high of 2 C and a low overnight of -7C.

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.

Today, your daily commute time as of 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019 is one hour 25 minutes, with minor congestion in Langley along Highway 1. Once you cross the Port Mann Bridge, however, is another story, with a mix of heavy and light congestion through to Vancouver.
