Snow moves through Alberta, cold remains
Monday, October 28, 2013, 7:18 AM -
Clear skies in Alberta after the first snow storm of the season moves out of area on Monday.
The system moved into the southern part of the province on Sunday and brought plenty of snow. As of 6 p.m. on Sunday, places like Kananaskis and Bow Valley saw up to 20 cm. while some parts of Calgary saw more than 10 cm. The snow continued throughout the night doubling some of those totals. Officials in Calgary expected up to 20 centimeters by Monday morning. Crews worked overnight to get all major roads ready for the morning commute.
Warnings were in place but have since ended.
An accident near Three Hills on Sunday morning took two lives, after nasty weather conditions were reported on the road.
The snowfall brought along with it some huge temperature drops. Some parts of the province reported more than 30 degrees of difference. Regions in Alberta are seeing temperatures in the negative teens but that could feel more like -20 once you take into account the wind chill.
Things are looking up as Halloween approaches. By mid week, warmer air will move into the area finally heating things up.
