The low to our southwest will bring increasing cloud cover during the day with a chance of some flurries by this evening. The freezing level will stay at below or around surface for today with a bit of a warming trend into Monday. There is a warm front to our south that may affect us by this evening. On the edge, so time will tell. Cloudy for Monday with another chance of some flurries with the FL rising to around 800 meters. Going off the European models, the other models are calling for dry weather into Tuesday. A front in a Westerly flow will move down the coast on Tuesday with light precipitation and the FL rising to around 1200 meters.
