For the forecast, the cold air mass embedded in our area will give us cool dry weather into mid week. We can expect a gradual warming trend to develop early in the week with freezing levels moderating and rising to 1200 meters by Wednesday. A weak front should move on shore by Thursday with cloudy conditions. Friday is looking like a snow day with light snow expected above 800 meters.

    Moisture to the North and South.

    We are in a bit of a dry hole!!
