More April snow spreads into Alberta, and the wind chill returns

Snow, and a wind chill -- welcome to April in Alberta. Brace for slower commute times through Wednesday as conditions change quickly across the province

Despite marching further into the heart of the spring season, winter refuses to let go across Alberta. More snow has spread back into the region, with some areas in line to possibly see 15 cm through Wednesday.

Winds will also be gusty, so commute times will likely be jeopardized amid the changing conditions. Be sure to pack some patience, and plan ahead for the deteriorating travel.
