Snowfall Warning

Issued at 4:11 a.m. MST Thursday 27 November 2014
Summary

A long period of snowfall, with total amounts of 20 to 30 cm is expected. A major Pacific frontal system will bring heavy snowfall to parts of central Alberta today and Friday. Snow has developed over most of central Alberta overnight. The snow heavy at times will slowly spread eastward during the day and will continue through Friday. Snowfall totals for this system, by the time Friday evening arrives, will likely be in the 15 to 30 cm range. Brisk northeasterly winds will likely generate drifting or blowing snow in open areas and along major highways. Behind the system, frigid Arctic air will drop daytime highs well below normal for the weekend. Snowfall warnings are issued when 10 cm of snow or more is expected to fall in 12 hours or less.
