An area of low pressure will bring a significant spring storm to Alberta as early as Tuesday evening.

On Tuesday evening the low will deepen near the Alberta Elbow.

This low will bring some unsettled and severe weather to Alberta.

This afternoon and evening along with Wednesday night, there will be some thunderstorms, some of which may become severe. 

Rain will also be an issue. Over central Alberta we could see flooding rains, amounts could exceed 50 mm.

Over higher terrain precipitation may fall in the form of snow. Areas of the Rocky Mountains and the Foothills could see significant amounts of snowfall.

As the low pushes away winds will increase over much of the province. We could see wind gusts up to 100 km/h.
