Morning Express – Tuesday, January 2

Back to work and back to flurries. We could pick up about 2cm or less this afternoon , with a mix of sun and cloud and the odd flurry during the day. Temperatures not bad at 0C , but we do see a cooling trend to below seasonal starting later this week. A few more flurries expected Wednesday. Right now, there’s a chance of a pretty good winter storm developing between the 8th and 12th. We will keep an eye on that.
