Central Alberta buried, more snow coming

Roads remain in only fair condition as a winter storm continues to dump snow on Central Alberta.

Roads remain in only fair condition as a winter storm continues to dump snow on Central Alberta.

Most major highways have limited visibility and slippery sections. The Alberta Motor Association reports Stettler region highways in poor condition.

The City of Red Deer has crews working around the clock to salt and sand roads. Officials advise to be careful driving around city equipment and not follow other vehicles too closely due to icy conditions.

RCMP report few collisions due in part to lower traffic numbers thanks to a long weekend’s start and a holiday at many schools.

Environment Canada issued a heavy snowfall warning with Central Alberta expected to get another five to 10 cm of snow through the day. The province’s southern section will get still more.

The storm hovering over the American Rockies and north has forecasts calling for temperatures of -12C today and -14C Saturday with more snow anticipated.

The sun will return Sunday with a high of -12C, but a chilly -24C overnight low. These are well below seasonal norms of 2C and -8C, which are expected to return by the middle of next week.
