Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Lethbridge - Taber - Milk River

Heavy snow in the mountains and then cold for the weekend.

A major Pacific frontal system will bring heavy snowfall to parts of Southern Alberta later this week, mainly over the Mountain Parks and the foothills. Upwards of 50 centimetres may fall in Banff and Jasper, with up to 20 centimetres in the foothills and lesser amounts farther east.

After this system passes, a plunge into the deep freeze is on tap.

Far southern areas of the province will likely see highs on Friday in the mid to high single digits. However, the passage of a cold front will drop temperatures very quickly; a drop by 20 degrees or more in 6 hours is likely. Lows will be among the coldest this fall, with some temperatures dropping below the minus 30 threshold this weekend.

The public is advised to monitor future forecasts and warnings as warnings may be required or extended.

Please monitor the latest forecasts and warnings from Environment Canada at www.weatheroffice.gc.ca.
