Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

A major Pacific frontal system will bring heavy snowfall to parts of 
central Alberta starting tonight and continuing through Friday.

For central Alberta, snow over the mountain Parks today will become 
heavier overnight. The snow has spread northward into the Hinton and 
Whitecourt regions this evening and will continue eastward towards 
the City of Edmonton and surrounding areas overnight. Heavy snow 
will continue Thursday and Friday before the system moves into 
Saskatchewan.

Over kananaskis country and the Pincher creek region, the heavy snow 
won't begin until Friday, but it will last 24 to 36 hours as well.

Storm total snowfall amounts will likely be in the 30 to 50 cm range 
over the mountain Parks as well as the Hinton and Whitecourt
regions, kananaskis country and Pincher creek. Note that some areas 
may see up to 75 cm of snow. Areas expected to be hardest-hit 
include grande Cache and the icefields Parkway, as well as far 
southwestern Alberta including Pincher creek. Jasper and banff town 
sites will still receive significant snowfall, but will have lesser 
accumulations.

Behind the system, frigid Arctic air will drop daytime highs well 
below normal for the weekend.

Winter storm warnings are issued when 25 cm of snow or more are 
expected to fall in 24 hours or less.

Travel is not recommended. Road closures are likely. Visibility may 
be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Take extra care when 
walking or driving in affected areas. Poor weather conditions are 
likely to contribute to long-lasting transportation delays. Public 
safety Canada encourages everyone to make an emergency plan and get 
an emergency kit with drinking water, food, medicine, a first-aid 
kit and a flashlight. For information on emergency plans and kits go
