Spring is on hold in central Alberta.
Heavy snow fall is on its way for Red Deer, beginning Monday evening. Environment Canada says about 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected by Tuesday morning.
The advisory is in effect for various parts of central Alberta including Red Deer, County of Stettler, Lacombe County, Red Deer County, Ponoka County and Camrose County.
A moisture-rich weather system will move across the province tonight. It is likely that this storm will produce significant snowfall over much of east-central Alberta. At this time, the greatest confidence in the highest accumulations is for areas east of the city of Edmonton. However, there remains a moderate likelihood of at least 10 cm falling elsewhere.
Once there is increased certainty on forecast amounts more regions may be added to the snowfall warning in effect.
