Snowfall Warning

Issued at 15:06 Tuesday 31 March 2015

Snowfall, with total amounts of 10 to 15 cm is expected. A low pressure system over northern Alberta will bring snowfall to parts of the province tonight. Snow will begin late this evening in western portions of the warning such as Valleyview and Fairview, while areas closer to the Saskatchewwan border will see snow begin Wednesday morning. Snowfall amounts will be highly variable, as there is some instability in the airmass. As a result, in general, 10 to 15 cm of heavy, wet snow can be expected, but isolated amounts of 25 cm aren't out of the question. Snowfall will taper off by Wednesday afternoon or evening. Snowfall warnings are issued when more than 10 cm of snow is expected to fall in 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. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. Please continue to monitor your local media or Weatheradio for further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can call 1-800-239-0484 or send an email to or tweet reports to #ABStorm.
