Your daily commute and weather forecast: Nov. 23, 2018

Showers in Abbotsford today and light congestion in Langley, heavy congestion past the Port Mann

Good morning! It was another wet start to the day at 7 C as of 7 a.m., and the Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 86 per cent humidity and 17 km/h winds from the south.

It’s only expected to get more rainy today, with a light rainshower turning to showers and a high of 7 C, turning to a few showers tonight and a low of 5 C. And if you haven’t already, you may want to invest in an umbrella, because that rain isn’t going away.

Over the next week, at least until Thursday, we’re looking at everything from a 30 per cent chance of showers to full-on rain, with highs ranging from 7 to 11 C. Lows between 3 and 9 C this week.
