Alerts for: City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park

Statements

9:30 PM MST Tuesday 25 November 2014
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park

Heavy snow in the mountains and then cold for the weekend.

A major Pacific frontal system will bring heavy snowfall to parts of Central Alberta later this week, mainly over the Mountain Parks and the foothills. Upwards of 50 centimetres may fall in the Mountain Parks and Grande Cache region, with up to 20 centimetres likely in regions farther east, including the City of Edmonton.

After this system passes, a plunge into the deep freeze is on tap. The deepening of Arctic air will make lows this weekend be among the coldest this fall, with some temperatures dropping below the minus 30 threshold this weekend.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
