Increasing clouds with rain by afternoon

The weather, currently.

As one system departs another one enters. After record-breaking warmth, it will be a much cooler morning tomorrow. The wake-up temperature Thursday morning near 1°C,  feeling more like -2°C with the wind chill. Expect sunny breaks in the morning, but the clouds will increase setting up some showers after lunchtime. Showers will become more widespread for the drive home and fall as light rain by evening. This new system is tracking a little further south, so there is not as much warm air moving in with it. The forecast high 5°C. The wind will be much lighter, an easterly breeze of 20-30km/h and a UV index 2 or low.

Thursday night: periods of light rain, changing to a brief period of freezing rain as our temperature drops through the night. Whatever moisture is left will fall as flurries by dawn, the low -4°C feeling more like -12°C with the wind chill.
