Central Alberta under snowfall warning

10-15 cm expected to have fallen by Friday morning

An approaching low pressure system will cause snow to fall over portions of western and central Alberta today and tonight. Snow has begun near the BC border and will spread southeastward through the day.

By the time snow ends Friday morning, 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected, although isolated pockets of 20 cm are possible.

Snowfall warnings are issued when 10 cm of snow or more is expected to fall within 12 hours or less.

Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. 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. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
