Expect a chilly start Wednesday, then it warms up
Temperatures should hit 20 C by late afternoon
After a bright but chilly start to the day, things will moderate nicely Wednesday.
Parts of Renfrew County west of the capital may even wake up to some frost.
The high tops out near 20 C and without the strong winds we had on Tuesday, it should feel just about right.
The UV index will top at 8 or very high, so don't forget the sunscreen.
As for Wednesday evening, the weather will become partly cloudy with a low around 10 C overnight.
A few showers or thundershowers are expected to arrive Thursday afternoon through the night with a high of 22 C.
Friday should be sunny, there are showers in the forecast for Saturday's opening day of Ottawa Race Weekend and a mix of sun and cloud on Sunday for the half and full marathons.
All of the next week's forecasted highs are in the low-to-mid 20s.
