Many Calgarians have been basking in the spring-like temperatures in the city but winter is expected to make a comeback this weekend.
“Winter returns with a vengeance this weekend,” said CBC Calgary weather specialist Craig Larkins. “We are already picking up some snow through central Alberta and it is starting to creep south.”
Environment Canada has issued several snowfall warnings. Areas north of Calgary could get up to 20 centimetres.
- Drumheller and Three Hills.
- Hanna, Coronation and Oyen.
- Red Deer, Ponoka, Innisfail and Stettler.
- Rocky Mountain House and Caroline.
Larkins said Calgary is not under a snowfall warning, but could receive roughly five centimetres. Cold temperatures will also return to the city this weekend.
