WATCH BELOW: SNOW ROLLS INTO ALBERTA FROM BEYOND THE ROCKIES
People across Alberta have been basking in temperatures that reached as high as the mid-teens in some areas, and Monday features an encore that won't be quite as warm, but will still be nicely above zero.
Beyond, a return to cooler temperatures awaits, beginning overnight Monday into Tuesday, though it won't be the same kind of deep freeze we've seen on a couple of occasions so far this season.
But the return of cooler temperatures also means the return of snow, thanks to a low-pressure system that begins to track into the Pacific Northwest Monday, bringing light rain and snow for B.C.
As the low continues eastward, south of the international border, moisture spills into Alberta, bringing snow beginning early Tuesday across the foothills, and the south of the province.
Few people north of Red Deer will see anything, but the further south we go, the heavier the snow, with even some upsloping enhancement across the southern foothills.
Travellers on Tuesday should be mindful of the conditions, and drive carefully.
The snow ends by the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday, gradually from north to south.
