A breezy, cool June day lies ahead.

Grab a light jacket as the high temperature today will only hit 17 C and a blustery northwest breeze will add to the chill.

We can expect cloudy skies and a few showers too.

That good chance of showers applies to tonight as well, with a low of 11 C.

Much more typical June weather returns Friday with blue skies, low humidity and pleasant temperatures.
