Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for much of the region as 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected tonight.
"A system moving along the BC/Alberta border will bring snow, at times heavy, to areas of southwestern Alberta starting this afternoon and ending overnight tonight. By the time the snow tapers off, 10 to 15 cm can be expected.
Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. If visibility is reduced while driving, turn on your lights and maintain a safe following distance."
