Parts of Alberta could be seeing snow this Labour Day weekend

The snow we saw on Highway 1 near Canmore early Monday morning was just a glimpse of what could be coming this Labour Day weekend.

According to an article from The Weather Network, more snow in the Rocky Mountains area is a definite possibility as a cooling pattern will be making its way back into the province.

The August snow can be attributed to a poorly placed ridge in the jet stream that is bringing colder air from further north down south.

A frost advisory was even put into place for much of southern Alberta on Tuesday morning, when temperatures took a plummet to near zero — thanks to winds of up to 50 km/hr coming in from the north.

The unseasonably cold weather may be cause for excitement for a few Albertans, at the very least, as some of the province’s ski hills have already received their first dusting of the season.

Looks like sweater weather is here just in time for PSL season.
