More of the same, dry cold weather will prevail until Friday. A warm front is scheduled to come onto the coast for Saturday. More on that later in the week. Looking like today may be very cold with temperatures slowly moderating as the week progresses.

There may be hope in the forecast for some precipitation. The European Model is favouring snowfall for next week.

     Just a model, but we can only hope it is some what correct.
