Get ready for rain

Things are going to get wet and windy today and tomorrow.

Environment Canada says that rain will start later this morning, and won't let up for at least a couple of days.

Some 10–15 mm of rain is expected through today, as winds pick up to 40 km/h from the east early this afternoon. Some gusts could be up to 60 km/h. The high will be 9ºC.

Another 10–15 mm will fall overnight tonight, with continuing high winds until just before tomorrow morning. The overnight low will be 3ºC.

Tomorrow will see more rain through the day, with a high of 9ºC. Rain should end late tomorrow evening, but it'll stay cloudy and as temperatures head down to 0ºC overnight there's a 60 per cent chance of flurries.

Friday will be quite cool, with a high of just 4ºC and periods of rain or snow through the day.

Saturday is the one bright spot in the forecast. It should be sunny and clear with a high of 6ºC.

But don't get used to it — Sunday marks a return to clouds and wind, with a 60 per cent chance of showers through the day.

Monday, too will be cloudy, with a good chance of either rain showers or perhaps a few flurries. The Monday high will be 8ºC.

At this point, the Tuesday forecast calls for a mix of sun and cloud, with a high of 11ºC.

The normal high for this time of year is 13ºC; the normal low is 0ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1990, when it was 28ºC. The coldest ever was in 1988, when it was -11.1ºC.

In 1955, there was a record-setting 30.5 mm of rain on this date. That's just a smidgen more than the upper limit expected today and tonight.
