It’s beginning to look a lot like … winter?
Much of southwestern Alberta is getting reacquainted with Old Man Winter as a storm system from Montana brings snow to much of the region Saturday afternoon.
Environment Canada has issued multiple weather warnings across the southwestern part of the province, warning the storm will bring 10 to 25 centimetres before tapering off on Sunday.
The system started off as cloud and rain in many areas before changing to snow as cooler air moved in from the north.
More western areas at a higher elevation should expect to see more snow.
Drivers are warned to adjust their driving for the conditions. The weather agency says visibility may be suddenly reduced in heavy snow.
The areas currently under a snowfall warning are:
- Brooks – Strathmore – Vulcan
- Cardston – Fort Macleod – Magrath
- Crowsnest Pass – Pincher Creek – Waterton Lakes National Park
- Kananaskis – Canmore
- Lethbridge – Taber – Milk River
- Okotoks – High River – Claresholm
