Snow warning issued for central Alberta

Up to 20 centimetres of snow expected beginning Friday night in central and southwestern Alberta

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for central Alberta.

Ten to 20 centimetres of snow is expected to fall beginning Friday evening and continuing until Saturday night as a Pacific weather system moves through central and southwestern Alberta.

In central Alberta, Ponoka, Paintearth, Lacombe, Red Deer, Camrose and Flagstaff Counties are included in the snow warning.

Over southeastern portions of Alberta, blowing snow over exposed areas may also reduce visibilities at times.

Drivers are warned to be alert and drive for the conditions.

People are urged to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ABstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ABStorm.

Mainroad Alberta Contracting has put out word its crews will be out on highways, sanding and plowing as required.

“As always, we request that motorists use caution as highway and weather conditions can change quickly.”
