Your daily commute and weather forecast: Jan. 9, 2019

Lots of congestion past the Port Mann, but some good weather news to come this weekend

Good morning! It was a little wet to start the day at 4 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 96 per cent humidity and 10 km/h winds from the north-northeast.

The wet weather continues today, with periods of rain and a high of 4 C, with the temperature actually expected to rise tonight to 5 C, with wind and a few showers overnight. Tomorrow, it’s looking like pretty much the same, albeit a bit warmer – a few showers during the day with a high of 9 C, before dropping to 5 C overnight with a 60 per cent chance of showers.

Friday and Saturday, we’ll still be seeing clouds and periods of rain, with highs of 9 C and lows of 4 and 2 C, but then comes the good news!

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. 9, 2018 is one hour 24 minutes, with pretty breezy commute along Highway 1 – until you pass the Port Mann Bridge.

Google Maps reports only a couple of areas of minor congestion through Langley and Surrey, but once you pass the Port Mann Bridge, the traffic starts to really back up.
