Alberta Is Under A Serious Weather Warning With Snowfall Up To 20 cm On The Way
Environment Canada has just issued Alberta snowfall warnings across several parts of the province as of Tuesday, February 2.
The alerts show as much as 20 centimetres of snow in some regions.
Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.
While most areas that are currently under weather warning can expect about 10 to 15 centimetres tonight and into the morning, some will get an even bigger dump of snow.
Both Banff and Jasper National Park have winter storm warnings in effect which means that visibility on the road will be less than ideal. Snow could pile up to a whopping 50 centimetres in these areas.
"Another 5 to 10 cm of snow will fall over sections of the Icefields Parkway today bringing total snowfall to near 50 cm," Environment Canada warns.
Albertans are urged to prepare for quickly changing travel conditions.
