Thursday, September 4, 2014, 11:37 AM - We're not even officially done with summer but there could be some bad news right around the corner.

"A cold arctic air mass will move south across the Prairies to start the upcoming work week," said Dayna Vettese. "It will bring with it very cold temperatures and some of the coolest air we've seen since last winter.

And if that wasn't bad enough the possibility of the dreaded winter-related s-word isn't out of the question.

"Models are suggesting that some of the precipitation present at the time could change over to snow or a mix of a rain and snow," Vettese said.

While some parts of Alberta have seen snow already, it was mostly places in very high elevations.

But who's the target for the upcoming messy weather?

"It's too early to nail down who exactly will see snow," Vettese elaborated. "But it's becoming more evident that we are looking at a cold air outbreak to start the week.

As the system develops and more information is available make sure to check back at The Weather Network for all the latest on the storm.
