Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 8, 2019

We’ve got little relief from the rain over the next week. Breezy commute, with little congestion

Good morning! It was a mainly clear start to the day at 1 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 79 per cent humidity and 7 km/h winds from the north-northeast.

After a couple of days with a bit of sunshine, we’re transitioning back into the dreary weather. Today, we’re looking at a high of 8 C with a mix of sun and cloud, before getting clouds and a few showers overnight, with a low of 3 C.

And we likely won’t see any hint of sun until Sunday (makes sense), with everything from a few showers to rain between Thursday and Saturday, highs of 7-9 C and lows of 4-5 C. Then, on Sunday, it looks like we’ll get sun mixed in with that cloud, with a chance of showers.

After that, we’ve got more clouds and more precipitation early next week, with highs of 7 C and lows of around 3 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.

Today, your daily commute time as of 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2018 is one hour 22 minutes, with pretty breezy commute along Highway 1 until you hit the Port Mann Bridge. After the bridge, it’s moderate to heavy congestion.
