Snow & Strong Wind for Prairies

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Sunday, November 26, 2017

An area of low pressure over the Pacific will cross the central prairies over the next couple of days.

This low will deliver heavy snow to parts of northwestern Alberta today which will continue to spread north into the southern Mackenzie Valley this afternoon and overnight tonight bringing 10 cm of snow to these regions.

There is a risk of freezing rain from central Alberta eastward over central Saskatchewan and the Manitoba Lakes.

The second pulse of moisture could deliver 10 to 20 cm of snow to most of the northern prairies overnight. At this point we may also see heavy snow in the Grande Cache region tonight.  

Strong wind gusting to 100 km/h are possible for the Pincher Creek and Cardston regions this afternoon.
