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.
