Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 31, 2019

We’re going to see a cold period late weekend, early next week, with a real chance to see some snow

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 4 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 78 per cent humidity and 8 km/h winds from the north.

We’ve got a 30 per cent chance of seeing some showers today with overcast skies and a high of 8 C, moving into a rainy night, about 10-20 mm, with a low of 5 C. And we’ve got much the same for Friday and Saturday, with highs of 6 C and lows of 4 and 2 C.

But we’re still looking at some potential snow at the tail end of the weekend, with a 70 per cent chance of rain showers or flurries Sunday during the day, with a high of 4 C, and a 60 per cent chance of flurries overnight Sunday with a low of -4 C.

That’s expected to move into a sunny Monday with a high of -3 C and a low of -6 C before the clouds start to mix in with the sun on Tuesday. We’ll see slightly increased temperatures at that point, with a high of -1 C on Tuesday and a low of -7 C overnight, with a 60 per cent chance of flurries – a chance that will continue into Wednesday, when we’ll see a high of 0 C.

Currently, visibility is 32 kilometres.
