Snow targets Alberta and Saskatchewan

Sunday, November 2, 2014, 10:40 AM – A snowy night has turned into a snowy day in parts of Alberta, and it’s slowly spreading to Saskatchewan also.

The low pressure system entered southwestern Alberta on Saturday, prompting Environment Canada to issue snowfall warnings stretching across the Western Prairies.

As of 8:30 a.m., the City of Calgary was also included in the warning, with around 12 cm having fallen overnight, with still more to come.

Weather Network meteorologist Brett Soderholm said early Sunday that up to 25 cm of snow could fall along a band stretching from southern Alberta to central Saskatchewan, with the bulk of it falling Sunday but lasting in some places into Monday.

“Snow should stop in Calgary this afternoon as it pushes east into Saskatchewan,” Soderholm says. “However, regions in extreme western Alberta could see snow lingering into the evening.”

Given the disparity in temperatures across the region, some communities are in for a rain-snow mix from this system.

“Widespread mixing in western Saskatchewan associated with slightly warmer temperatures is forecast throughout the day today,” Soderholm says.
