Your daily commute and weather forecast: May 1, 2019

A sunny weekend to look forward to coming up. Fairly breezy commute, but a bit of congestion in Langley

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 8 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 64 per cent humidity and 5 km/h winds from the north.

Today, a cloudy start before turning to a mix of sun and cloud later in the morning and a windy afternoon with a high of 19 C, before dropping to a partly cloudy 9 C low overnight. That’s followed by a couple of days with a little bit of sun and a lot of clouds to close off the week, with highs of 17 and 18 C and lows of 7 and 6 C, before we start a sunny weekend.
