Environment Canada issued a Snow Squall Watch for the Foothills area including High River and Okotoks.

Here's the release from Environment Canada:


12:50 PM MST Sunday 27 November 2022
Snow squall watch in effect for:

  • Foothills Co. near Cayley
  • Foothills Co. near High River and Aldersyde
  • Foothills Co. near Longview and Eden Valley Res.
  • Foothills Co. near Okotoks and De Winton
  • Foothills Co. near Priddis and Brown-Lowery Prov. Park
  • Foothills Co. near Turner Valley and Black Diamond
  • M.D. of Willow Creek near Claresholm and Stavely
  • M.D. of Willow Creek near Nanton and Parkland
  • Rocky View Co. near Bragg Creek and Tsuu T'ina Res.

Brief, heavy snowfall is expected. Poor visibilities in heavy snow and blowing snow are possible today.

An intense cold front is bringing a band of heavy snow and strong winds to southern Alberta.

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Travel may be hazardous due to sudden changes in the weather. Visibility may be significantly and suddenly reduced to near zero.

Snow squall watches are issued when conditions are favourable for brief but intense bursts of heavy snow producing near zero visibilities.
