Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

A major Pacific weather system will continue to bring snow to most 
of west and southwestern Alberta for the next couple of days. As the 
system moves slowly eastward the main area of snowfall will 
gradually move south along the BC/Alberta border and the foothills. 
Snow will begin to taper off from the north on Friday and will exit 
southern areas on Saturday.

In the Pincher creek region, the heavy snow is forecast to begin on 
Friday, and is expected to last 24 to 36 hours as well.

Storm total snowfall amounts will likely be in the 30 to 50 cm range 
however 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.

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. Surfaces such as highways, roads, 
walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to 
accumulating snow. 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

Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as required. 
Please continue to monitor your local media or weatheradio for 
further updates. If you would like to report severe weather, you can
