More snow coming as Environment Canada issues snowfall warning for Calgary

And just like that, another snowfall warning hits our fine city.

You’d think that we’d have been finished with all that nonsense now that we’re a quarter of the way through April and weeks into spring, but Calgary winter just doesn’t quit quite that easily.

Environment Canada issued the snowfall warning early Saturday morning, warning residents that 10 to 15 cm of snow is expected to accumulate within the next 24 hours.

The majority of the snow will hit Saturday night before tapering off on Sunday morning, according to the warning.

Other areas of Alberta affected by the snowfall warning are Okotoks, Drumheller, Brooks, and Airdrie.

As always, Environment Canada is urging drivers to use caution if they must take to the roads over the next 24 hours, as visibility will be limited.

It’s not all bad, cold, wet news for Calgary, however, as next week is looking to feature sunshine, warm weather, and perhaps even a rainbow (if we’re lucky).

Until then, it looks like it’s back to shovelling…
