Published

1 minute read

Looks like Mother Nature has some nasty weather planned for Central Alberta. Environment Canada has issued a Special Weather Statement right across the province for regions from Grande Prairie, Slave Lake and Lac La Biche in the North, right down to Airdrie, Drumheller and Oyen in the South.

Environment Canada meteorologists say the first in a series of weather systems from British Columbia will move through northern Alberta today. An area of snow will develop in the Peace country near noon and track eastward into Saskatchewan this evening. 2 to 5 cm is expected with this system in areas north of Edmonton.

The next low pressure system is stronger and will spread snow and freezing rain into west central Alberta by Friday morning. An area of heavy snow will develop in the Alberta elbow and move eastward, north of Edmonton, towards Cold Lake. 5 to 10 cm is generally expected, however local amounts may reach 15 cm. Meanwhile, south of Edmonton, freezing rain forming in the Rocky Mountain House and Airdrie regions will intensify and track eastward to the Lloydminster and Coronation regions. Freezing rain will change to snow behind the system Friday afternoon and end by evening as the system moves into Saskatchewan.

As details concerning the intensity and track of the systems become clearer, warnings may be issued for heavy snow or freezing rain.
