The freezing level will hover in the 2000 meter range by this afternoon. A series of Pacific Frontal bands will bring periods of wet and windy weather for most of the week.  The snow line will move down the mountain as the week progresses, likely just above surface by Saturday. Might see the trend slow down by the weekend, but that is a ways off. Looks like a reprieve for the weekend at this time. Fall is here, with winter not far behind.
