Watch out for wet roads and some patchy fog early today, then a cloudy, breezy and mild day with a bit of drizzle.

Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning, as well. But the ice shouldn't be a problem as the day warms up.

We'll see a high near 7 C — the record to beat today is 10 C.

Rain moves in Thursday night into Friday morning, which means a sloppy morning commute filled with puddles.

By nightfall Friday temperatures fall below freezing, followed by a shot of snow into early Saturday. A cold weekend lies in wait.
