Clearing skies today, making way for an almost perfectly sunny day. Delays in Langley and past the Port Mann

Good morning! There was fire in the sky this morning, as the rising sun lit up a mostly cloudy morning, starting the day at 8 C as of 7 a.m. The Environment Canada weather service tells us we’ve got 90 per cent humidity and 5 km/h winds from the north-northwest.

But those clouds are set to clear up by afternoon, making way for another sunny day and a high of 20 C.

Tonight is expected to remain clear, but with a few clouds, with a low of 8 C, and tomorrow looks like much the same — sunny, with a high of 20 C and a low of 7 C overnight with clear skies.

Currently, visibility is 24 kilometres.

On clear roads and driving at the speed limit, a drive from the Abbotsford News building to Downtown Vancouver would take 50 minutes.

If you’re coming from Chilliwack, you may expect to see more delays, with a crash on Highway 1 at Cole Road westbound.
