Snow blankets parts of Alberta on Labour Day

Monday, September 7th 2020, 1:36 pm - The wild temperature swing on the Prairies left parts of Alberta struggling to reach double digit temperatures on Labour Day.

A few parts of Alberta got a taste of winter-like weather this long weekend.

Temperatures plunged across the Prairies due to a deep upper level trough dragging in unusually cold air from the north. A weak low pressure system then tracked over the Rockies into Alberta and the frigid temperatures allowed for snow to fall across parts of the province.

Some high elevation areas saw several centimetres of snow accumulate and certain ski hills, such as those at Sunshine Village, looked like they were in the middle of winter.

See below for a look at the winter-like weather in Alberta.
