A long period of snowfall, with total amounts of 20 to 30 cm is expected.
The Pacific weather system which brought large amounts of snow to central Alberta is weakening and moving further east. Conditions have improved in northwestern sections of the province as well as in the capital region. Areas further east will see snow taper off this evening.
Storm snowfall totals in some areas will exceed 30 cm of snow.
Brisk northerly winds will continue to generate drifting or blowing snow in open areas and along major highways today. Conditions will improve overnight as the wind diminishes.
Behind the system, frigid Arctic air will drop daytime highs well below normal for the weekend.
Snowfall warnings are issued when 10 cm of snow or more is expected to fall in 12 hours or less.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.
Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet reports to #ABStorm.
