Parts of Alberta already experiencing a September snowfall (PHOTOS)

Sep 11 2018, 4:58 pm

Some residents of Alberta had to dig out those winter coats and snow boots because they just woke up to an unseasonable covering of snow.

Environment Canada issued public weather alerts on Tuesday for Grande Prairie and its surrounding areas, warning of up to 10 to 15 cm of snow overnight. Other snowfall warnings included for Jasper National Park, Slave Lake, and Hinton, while special weather statements were called for nine other regions.

Environment Canada says this is due to a cold front slumping into Alberta, bringing cold temperatures and precipitation that has changed to snow as the temperatures dropped.

It advises drivers to use proper safety precautions as the snow has already affected highways.

Calgary is also facing the possibility of snow this week.

The snow is predicted to lessen throughout the day, but there is still a chance of a few flurries in the region through this evening.

If you happen to be living in a part of Alberta that isn’t currently covered in snow, we’ve put together a few photos to show you just how hard the early winter hit the other parts of the province.
