A snowfall warning is in effect for much of Central Alberta, including in Red Deer, Stettler, Lacombe and Penhold.
Environment Canada says 10 to 15 centimetres of snowfall is expected beginning Thursday morning.
The highest amounts of snow are anticipated to fall west of Red Deer to Milk River. It’s possible some areas will see up to 20 centimetres before the snow tapers off by Friday morning.
There is also a risk of freezing rain and dense fog forming overnight and into the early morning just before the heavy snow begins. Should either of these become widespread in nature, warnings or advisories will be issued accordingly.
