Environment Canada Just Issued A Massive Snowfall Warning For Alberta And It's Going To Be Brutal

If you haven't already Alberta, bundle up. Grab the salt, maybe get an extra shovel and get ready for another round of snowfall. A section of Alberta is going to get covered snow, and it's coming quick. 

Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning on Monday morning for central Alberta, through the Edmonton region. As the result of a low-pressure system, the province is set to experience another arctic blast.

Between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, residents can expect between 10 to 15 centimetres of snow within a twelve-hour period, starting in the late Afternoon. The storm will move eastward to Edmonton overnight and will ideally exit the province before Tuesday afternoon at the latest. 

Due to the amount of snow, travel on highways and city roads could be substantially more difficult. Environment Canada warns of the incoming conditions and the potential impact of traffic in urban areas. 

Here is a list of all the communities that may experience up to 15 cm of snow:

  • Bonnyville
  • St. Paul
  • Cold Lake
  • Lac La Biche
  • Edmonton
  • St. Albert
  • Sherwood Park
  • Fort Saskatchewan
  • Vegreville
  • Redwater 
  • Smoky Lake   
  • Grande Prairie  
  • Beaverlodge
  • Valleyview  
  • Hinton 
  • Grande Cache
  • Slave Lake
  • Spruce Grove
  • Morinville
  • Mayerthorpe
  • Evansburg
  • Westlock
  • ​Barrhead 
  • Athabasca
  • Whitecourt
  • Edson  
  • Fox Creek 
  • Swan Hills

So grab a blanket (or two!), zip up your jacket and make sure you've got extra salt - and maybe an extra shovel. You'll want to be more than ready for this round of Winter. Or perhaps, just hiding indoors from it the entire time, we don't judge.
