Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Lakeland region. The area is expected to experience 10 cms or more in the next 12 hour period.
A slow moving frontal system has spread snow from west to east across central Alberta today. Snow will intensify tonight and continue into the weekend. This long duration snowstorm is expected to produce total accumulations of 15 to 35 cm by Saturday afternoon.
Due to the banded structure of the heaviest snow, total accumulations may not be uniform across all regions.
Snowfall Warnings are issued when significant snowfall (10 cm or more within a 12 hour period) is expected.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
