Piles of snow falling all across Alberta

Up to 30 cm (12 inches) of snow expected in areas around Calgary.

Environment Canada issued a handful of public weather alerts on Monday morning, with full-on snowfall warnings for Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Kananaskis Country, Canmore, and Nordegg.

Special weather statements have been put in effect for the areas around Airdrie, Carston, Crowsnest Pass, Okotoks, Rocky Mountain House, and the city of Calgary.

A low-pressure system forming over BC will sweep into the Rocky Mountains with heavy snowfall of 15 to 30 cm for the high altitude regions.

The majority of the snowfall is expected west of Nordegg and Pincher Creek, though there is a possibility of up to 10 cm in areas under a special weather statement instead of a snowfall warning — including Calgary.

Poor driving conditions will plague highways near and west of Calgary.

  1. Very lucky people!!
    Please everyone pray for United States that US will get tons of snowstorms and long period harsh cold!!

  2. In 2009 on the 4th October we ran into a massive snowstorm east of Crowsnest Pass. There was another great lot of snow on the 8th around Lethbridge/Fort Macleod. It was very cold and we were hugely grateful for the thick coats, hats, scarves and gloves that we’d brought with us from England…having been told by the rellies that we wouldn’t need them!
