It was earlier reported by Environment Canada that up to 15 centimetres were expected in some parts of the city.
Once again, it is snowing #yeg. Driving in these conditions is frustrating, but you know the drill. Please drive slowly, allow yourself extra stopping distance and be aware of your surroundings. It is okay to be late today. #yegtraffic #yegwx

The city is also asking drivers to slow down and drive to conditions even though the snowfall warning has ended.
Please travel to the conditions this evening. Leave extra stopping distance between vehicles and intersections and keep an eye out for pedestrians and cyclists. Please give snow/ice clearing crews room to work. #yegtraffic
