Freezing level is around 3000 m. Cool upper low will bring some wet weather for Tuesday afternoon with periods of light precipitation. Upper low will begin to slide east after some morning showers on Wednesday, ridge will slowly build in by Wednesday afternoon. Should see mostly sunny weather by Wednesday night. May see some cloud for Thursday but favouring the ridge to continue building, time will tell.  Ridge strengthens and finally sticks around into the weekend. Looking good into early next week. Finally a stretch of summer like weather.
