Signs of winter show up in southern Alberta
Friday, October 11, 2013, 8:38 AM -
Wet snow was falling just south of Calgary on Thursday, giving residents a bold reminder that winter is on the way.
A weather warning was issued for places like Okotoks and High River, warning of heavy, wet snow over the higher terrain.
That warning has since been dropped and any snow that has fallen is expected to melt.
There were no signs of snow in the City of Calgary, but October snowfall isn't out of the question either.
"In fact, Calgary averages 10 cm of snow in October, and the region hasn't had any measurable snow so far this year," says Doug Gillham, a meteorologist at The Weather Network.
"High pressure will dominate through the Thanksgiving long weekend, with many places seeing sunny skies and seasonal temperatures," adds Brian Dillon, another meteorologist at The Weather Network.
