Much of Alberta under special snowy weather forecast, strong winds in the forecast




Environment Canada has released a special weather statement for southern and central Alberta, warning snow and strong winds are expected on Friday

The statement from the national weather agency includes Calgary and Lethbridge and was released just before 5pm on Thursday.

Environment Canada says a Pacific low is projected to move ahead of BC on Thursday and then across south-central Alberta on Friday.

“In south-central Alberta, a snow band associated with this weather system is likely to produce accumulations of up to 10 cm by Friday afternoon, with higher amounts along lowlands and mountain parks,” Environment Canada said.

“There remains considerable uncertainty as to where most of the snow will fall as this low is still off the coast of the Pacific BC.”

What weather should Albertans expect this winter?

In southern Alberta, temperatures are initially expected to be well above zero on Friday, meaning it could rain before it snows.

“As the cold front passes through the region on Friday afternoon, temperatures are expected to drop rapidly below zero with snow and strong north winds with gorges of 60 to 80 km / h,” Environment Canada said. “This sudden change in weather can lead to dangerous travel conditions and can occur during Friday afternoon travel to some communities in southern Alberta.”

Global Calgary weather anchor Jodi Hughes says Calgary temperatures are expected to stay below freezing from Friday evening until at least Tuesday morning, meaning some of the accumulation could stay over the weekend.

“Seasonal averages for this period of the year include altitudes of about 13 C with low levels of -1 C,” she said. “The day’s achievements this weekend are expected to be between -5 C to -3 C with a decrease of about -10 C.”

In addition to the special weather statement, Environment Canada also issued a winter storm clock for the southwestern tip of the province including Banff National Park and Jasper National Park.

“Significant snowfall associated with this system is expected to begin (Thursday) in the evening with accumulations possibly larger than 25 cm for parts of the Parkway Icefields by Friday afternoon,” the clock said.

“Snow falling quickly with winds blowing close to 70 km / h on exposed parts of the highway can lead to poor visibility and snow blowing locally.”

Environment Canada is advising people to avoid traveling in the area if possible, saying rapidly accumulating snow can make it difficult in some areas.
