Torontonians may be cranking the AC today as the temperatures climb back up towards 30 degrees, but in other parts of Canada, it's a very different story. 

Western Canada was hit with a crazy snow storm last night and as if that wasn't enough now there are actually severe snowfall warnings in effect for other parts of the country.

Despite it still officially being summer (fall doesn't start until September 22), Environment Canada is warning residents in some areas of Alberta that massive amounts of snow are still on the way. 

The warnings, issued for Jasper National Park, Slave Lake, Grand Prairie-Beaverlodge-Valleyview, and Hinton-Grande Cache areas, say that another 10 to 15 centimetres of snow are expected.

So what's to blame for this weird summer snow storm? According to Environment Canada, a cold front in the area has brought the snow with it and it's not the light fluffy stuff either. The cold front has caused heavy, wet snow to fall down on parts of Alberta, especially higher elevation areas and by the icefields.

While the Calgary area seems to have been spared from the snow, they definitely aren't enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures Ontario has right now. The forecast for the city is currently below 10 degrees and raining all day. 

As for the snow, Environment Canada says the situation will improve by Thursday, with the snowfall beginning to end later tonight.
