EDMONTON — Mother Nature sure can be moody on the Prairies.
RCMP say strong westerly winds blew at least six transport trucks off of highways south of Calgary on Tuesday.
Further north, a storm dumped 60 centimetres of snow in the mountains, clogging roads and causing the temporary closure of Highway 93 between Jasper and Saskatchewan River Crossing.
The southwest winds brought beautiful weather to parts of Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada said temperatures were running up to 20 degrees higher than normal values, setting records in some communities.
The winds did create some problems in Saskatchewan, including fanning the flames of a grass fire near Lashburn that affected traffic on Highway 16.
