We made it to the other side, Calgary.
The city was hit by an Environment Canada snowfall warning early Wednesday morning, warning of 15 to 25 falling on YYC and upwards of 50 cm falling at higher elevations to the west.
The warning was called off at around 10:30 am on Thursday, leaving Calgary covered in a fresh sheet of icy white — though not quite as much snow fell on the downtown core as predicted.

Still, Calgarians are now expected to clear their sidewalks within the next 24 hours, and the city will start its Seven-Day Snow Plan to make sure roads are driveable — starting with Priority 1 roadways that see over 20,000 vehicles per day, such as Crowchild Trail, Glenmore Trail, and the downtown core.
Snow continues to fall with an expectation of an additional 2-4cms this morning. Once the snow stops falling city-wide, our Seven Day Snow Plan will be activated. #yycsnowhttps://t.co/PD1Y0Gl2XS pic.twitter.com/qdmOzhvQ5w

A snow route parking ban is not expected to be needed at this time, according to the City of Calgary’s recent release.
And don’t expect things to warm up (too much) this weekend just because the snowfall warning is over. The Weather Network is calling for highs of just -12° on Friday, -7°C on Saturday, and 1°C on Sunday.
The real warmth comes back to Calgary by next Tuesday, when sunny skies will be accompanied by a high of 9°C and a low of just -3°C.
