Grey and gloomy is the order of the day today — and tomorrow.

Environment Canada says today will see a 60 per cent chance of showers this afternoon, with the risk of a thunderstorm this afternoon. There will be hardly any wind, however, and temperatures will hit a high of 8ºC.

There's a good chance of continuing showers this evening and overnight, as temperatures head down to 2ºC.

Tomorrow will be cloudy most of the day, with a chance of a few lingering showers early in the morning, and some sun breaking through by early in the evening. The daytime high will again be 10ºC.

Saturday is predicted to see a mix of sun and cloud, but a little cooler, hitting a high of 7ºC.

Sunday marks a return to rain, with a high of 9ºC, and more rain is forecast for Monday, with a high of 10ºC.

Tuesday, too, should be cloudy, with a good chance of showers, and a high of 12ºC.

Wednesday, however, looks more springlike. At this point, the Wednesday forecast calls for a high of 15ºC and sunny skies.

The normal high for this time of year is 14ºC, the normal low is 1ºC.

The warmest it's ever been on this date was in 1982, when it hit 23.7ºC. The coldest ever was in 1945, when it dropped to -7.8ºC.
