Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Lakeland region, as well as a freezing rain risk overnight.
An area of snow and strong winds will develop tonight over central Alberta and move southward early Monday morning. Snowfall amounts across the region will vary, but a general 5 to 10 cm can be expected north and west of Edmonton, while areas around the Capital region can expect up to 5 cm.
Areas over southern Alberta could see up to 2 to 4 cm by Monday afternoon. The only exception to this will be along the southern foothills where snowfall accumulations could exceed 10 cm.
There is also a slight risk of freezing rain over central Alberta overnight. Strong northwest winds gusting up to 80 km/h will also develop Sunday night. In combination with the freshly fallen snow, low visibilities in blowing snow can be expected over central Alberta tonight and across southern Alberta on Monday.
