Parts of Alberta under a snowfall warning from Environment Canada

A storm could be brewing for the city of Calgary.

Large parts of the province have fallen under either a special weather statement or snowfall warning, including Rocky View County near Airdrie.

The frightening red of Environment Canada’s map has yet to fill in Calgary’s little portion (it’s the small one just under the grey), but the statement for Airdrie, Cochrane, Olds, and Sundre warns that the snowfall warning may be extended to southwestern Alberta as we get further into the weekend.

“The snow is forecast to slump southward Friday, however the location of the heaviest snow over southern Alberta is still unclear,” reads the statement, which was issued at 10:36 am Thursday morning.

Snowfall is expected to hit hardest in Central Alberta, with 10 to 25 cm forecasted by Saturday morning.

Even without falling under the special weather statement (yet), Calgary can still expect to see a significant amount of snow from now through Saturday, as the weekend forecast calls for periods of snow throughout Friday and a low of -15°C.

You may want to colour those Easter eggs something other than white if you’ve got an outdoor hunt planned this weekend – just saying.
