Get those shovels ready.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for much of central Alberta, including the City of Red Deer.

Up to 15 to 25 cm of snow is expected tonight.

Heavy snow will move into southwestern Alberta today then spread north and eastward through tonight. The snow will end by Tuesday evening.

A snowfall warning has been issued for the City of Red Deer, portions of Red Deer County, Lacombe County, Ponoka County, County of Stettler, Camrose County and County of Paintearth and Flagstaff County.

Beginning Tuesday morning, strong winds are expected to cause poor visibility because of blowing snow for areas east and south of Calgary.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions, says Environment Canada. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.

Please continue 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.
