There is a stalled low off the coast, so  expect more snow for the foreseeable future, heaviest amounts during the evening and early morning hours. A series of fronts will be here for the next week. Forecast for today is 10-12 during the day and another 10 by Saturday morning.

That is a significant low pressure sitting off the west coast. If it stays around we could possibly see over 1 meter of snow by Wednesday Dec 5, 2012 in the alpine areas. Freezing levels will hopefully drop back to a favourable levels by Tuesday giving us snow to the valley.
