A series of storms that have moved through the Prairies brought rain and snow to the region through the weekend.

"Calgary saw anywhere from 10-20 cm on Saturday and picked up a couple more centimetres throughout the day Sunday," says Weather Network meteorologist Kelly Sonnenburg. "Flurries will persist in Calgary through Monday as well."

Heavier snow is expected further north prompting a snowfall warning in Fort McMurray.

"The snowfall accumulations with this system are expected to be highly variable," said Environment Canada in the snowfall warning Monday morning. "Some areas may see as little as two centimetres while others will see over 15 centimetres."

Poor road conditions are expected and visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.

Meanwhile, dense fog resulted in near zero visibility for some places Monday morning, including the city of Edmonton, Leduc and Bonnyville.

A fog advisory was issued warning of hazardous travel due to significantly and suddenly reduced visibilities.
