Showers will morph into a chance of flurries overnight, followed by further flurries and a high of 1 C Monday. The mercury will drop to the week-low of -11 C Monday night before a 30 per cent chance of flurries and a high of -4 C kicks off Tuesday.

Periods of snowfall and flurries will continue throughout the week, save for Thursday afternoon which is primed for a 30 per cent chance of showers.
