Another snowy weekend across Alberta

Monday, November 4, 2013, 7:33 AM -

Alberta's second snowiest weekend in a row continued Sunday morning with some places recording over 30 cm of snow. 

"From Edmonton to Calgary, and west, the heaviest snow is over, though 1-3 cm will still fall in spots as the snow showers diminish to flurries," Doug Gillham, a meteorologist at The Weather Network, said Sunday morning.

The storm was unambiguously winter-like, dumping over 30 cm of snow in some parts of the province.

The B.C. Interior also caught some of that snow, which began as a deluge in the Lower Mainland before the system moved east.

The snow shut down roads and highways, making driving and travel difficult for people in a wide swath of Alberta. 

Officials urged drivers to stay off the roads altogether if they could, and at least 10 crashes were reported in the Airdrie region.

The system continued to push into central Saskatchewan, where over 15 cm was recorded early Monday.

Rain changed to snow across much of the province during the day and into the night on Sunday.

"The southernmost parts of Saskatchewan will not see significant amounts of snow from this system, but we will be watching for the potential for snow to fall in the south during late Thursday and Thursday night," Gillham said.
