Friday might be the time to sneak off a little early from work (don’t you have that dentist appointment again?), as the forecast calls for plenty of sunshine.

Though 13s and Fridays don’t tend to get along, the start to this weekend could be different.
In a phone call with Environment Canada, meteorologist André Cantin confirmed that the average amount of sunshine for a day in May is seven and a half hours, with monthly totals hovering just over 240 hours of sun.
“The maximum amount of sunshine on a May day is 15 hours and 20 minutes, from sunrise to sunset,” explains Cantin. “Getting 13 hours would make for a really nice sunny day — plain and simple.”
Along with the extended sunshine time, Friday is slated to be 17ºC, a slight drop compared to Wednesday and Thursday’s 19ºC.
Saturday and Sunday aren’t expected to budge from Friday’s 17ºC temperature, but are expected to be “cloudy with sunny breaks,” according to The Weather Network.
For the record, Saturday and Sunday are slated to give off three and eight hours of sunshine, respectively.
It looks like it’s time to dig out those shades for Friday.
