Wintery weather is hitting Alberta in full force this Wednesday.

Environment Canada has issued a number or snowfall warnings for regions in southern Alberta as of this morning, warning of upwards of 15 cm falling in some areas.

The warnings are currently in place for the province’s southernmost regions of Cardston, Fort Macleod, Magrath, Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek, Waterton Lakes National Park, Cypress Hill Provincial Park, Foremost Lethbridge, Taber, and Milk River.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” the warning states.

Calgary has been spared from the Environment Canada warning, though The Weather Network predicts around 1 cm of snow to fall throughout the day and temperatures feeling like -12°C.

The skies will clear somewhat over YYC overnight, though temperatures will drop to a true -12°C.

A total of 1 to 3 cm of snow is also expected to fall on Calgary this Friday, though things will warm up to above freezing come the start of next week.
