Your daily commute and weather forecast: Nov. 6, 2018

A chance of showers in Abbotsford today and a major road closure on Highway 1 in Surrey

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 94 per cent humidity and 17 km/h winds from the south-southeast.

We could see a bit of rain today, with a 40 per cent chance of showers and a high of 12 C and a chilly low of 3 C.

We’ve got a 40 per cent chance of showers overnight as well, but tomorrow looks like clearing skies — that will lead us to a clear night Wednesday and sunny skies on Thursday. High tomorrow is forecast at 10 C, dropping to a low of 0 C, likely our first glance at the freezing point this season.
