Your daily commute and weather forecast: May 2, 2019

A sunny forecast, but we need to get through some clouds today and tomorrow to get there

Good morning! It was a mostly cloudy start to the day at 9 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 75 per cent humidity and 22 km/h winds from the south.

The forecast is looking sunnier and sunnier as this week goes by, but we still need to get through some clouds to get there.

Today, expect mainly cloudy skies, with a chance of showers this morning and near the mountains this afternoon and a high of 17 C, followed by a mainly cloudy night with a low of 7 C. From there, the forecast shows cloudy skies tomorrow morning, turning to a mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon, with a high of 17 C and a low overnight of 7 C with clear skies.
