The mountains will see a few more passing snow showers tonight.
It'll be a dry end to the work week with ideal amounts of sunshine in the lowlands and snow will finally come to an end in the mountains. Temperatures will remain at least ten degrees below average with readings in the 40s into the end of the weekend.
