We've had a major cool down in the capital, but it was needed after the past humid two days.

Friday starts cloudy, but the forecast calls for skies to clear around noon with a north wind gusting from 20 to 40 kilometres per hour.

The high will reach 17 C with a UV index of eight (very high).

For those heading to Kanata for Game 4, take note of Friday night's weather.

The low will drop to 4 C, which means you'll be chilly when you leave the rink. Skies remain clear, though, with a north wind at 20 km/h.

Saturday is almost identical to Friday, but with more sun. The high will be 18 C.

Sunday should be cloudy with a slight chance (30 per cent) of rain. The high is 17 C.

The weather warms a bit on Victoria Day to a high of 21 C, but there is a 40 per cent chance of rain.
