The flow will shift Westerly bringing overcast skies this evening and we will see the freezing level drop to around 800 meters with light snowfall. A stronger front is expected Tuesday evening with the freezing level hovering around 1400 meters. Wednesday morning will be unsettled, in the afternoon as a warm front will move through with the FL spiking to 1800 meters. Frontal waves in a SW flow will continue into Saturday and the FL should come back down to between 1000-1200 meters by Friday. Guesstimates for Tuesday morning: 3-5 cm, Wednesday morning: 15-20 cm.
