Warmer weather means the snow and ice from a winter of precipitation is starting to melt. In some areas of Red Deer the melt has collected into puddles on the road, such as the intersection of 55th Avenue and 43rd Street. The thawing weather is expected to continue, with daily highs hovering around 0 C for the next week. (Photo by MURRAY CRAWFORD/Advocate staff)
