The forecast for the weekend is for more cold weather and snow, but without any additional accumulation.
The mercury will begin to go up on Monday and the trend is to continue during the week with temperatures above freezing.
The Christmas forecast is for warmer for the season weather with temperatures reaching between 7 and 14 degrees Celsius during the day.
