Your daily commute and weather forecast: May 9, 2019

Record-high temperatures for today and tomorrow at 28 C and clear skies through to Monday

Good morning! It was a mainly sunny start to the day at 14 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 65 per cent humidity and 8 km/h winds from the north-northeast.

Today and tomorrow, expect temperatures to rise to 28 C and drop to 13 overnight with clear skies throughout. If temperatures reach that high, it will clear Environment Canada’s highest recorded temperature for May 9 by 1.3 C and the May 10 record by 2.7 C. On both days, it would clear the seasonal averages by close to 11 C.

The UV index is rated at 7 or high today, so wear sunscreen if you’re outside a lot today.

After that, as the heat simmers closer to the mid-20s over the weekend, no temperature records will be broken, but we’ll keep the clear skies through to Monday, with a high of 20 C. That night, expect cloudy periods with a low of 8 C, followed by a mix of sun and cloud Tuesday with a high of 22 C and a low of 8 C, and finally a cloudy Wednesday with a high of 20 C.

Currently, visibility is 48 kilometres.
