Warm Wednesday in Ottawa signals beautiful week ahead

Other than some patchy fog to start the day for some, this is a good-news forecast for Wednesday — if you like it sunny and mild that is.

Other than some patchy fog to start the day for some, this is a good-news forecast for Wednesday — if you like it sunny and mild that is.

Highs today will hit 19 C under blue skies. The average high this time of year is 12 C!

We might hit 20 C by Thursday, and believe it or not, your weekend is looking sublime.

He's a hockey dad, and before he became Ottawa's go-to guy for accurate forecasts, he was a substitute teacher in just about every high school in town. A self-described weather geek, he is particularly excited about how technology has caught up to the way he had envisioned weather forecasting 20 years ago.
