20-Degree Temperature Fall, Strong Wind And Snow Likely In Regions of Alberta

Much of the province of Alberta remained under weather warnings or statements on Monday as Environment Canada was predicting a severe weather variation on Monday evening and through to Tuesday.

A significant drop in temperature approaching

A lot of areas were dropped from a province-wide special weather statement issued Sunday, but Albertans were still being recommended to get ready for unseasonably cold temperatures, strong north winds, and snow. The daytime highs through areas of Alberta on Tuesday could be 20 degrees colder as compared to the highs on Monday.

In the statement issued Sunday afternoon, Environment Canada explained a low-pressure system was rising in the Yukon Sunday night and was likely to take the first step into Alberta Monday. A strong cold front is predicted to come in behind the low, bringing breezy north winds up to 50 km/h, which will quickly drop temperatures initially in the northern portion of the province prior to moving into southwestern Alberta Tuesday.

Models suggest, by Wednesday night, Calgary could experience as much as 9 cm of snow, whereas regions such as Edmonton are supposed to keep away from any noteworthy buildup.

Snowfall warning for western Alberta

Warning for snowfall was issued for the Rocky Mountains and Foothills regions of western Alberta, including the regions around Rocky Mountain House, Kananaskis, Jasper, and Banff. Overall, snowfall with total amounts of ten to thirty centimeters is estimated, the weather agency updated on Monday morning, adding the greatest amounts will be over higher elevations.

With the strong wind, rain, and then snow, visibility will likely be a concern – particularly in those higher regions and along the foothills. Road circumstances in Calgary and through the southwest corner of Alberta could be a worry for the Tuesday morning commute, as the system is anticipated to move into those regions during the night.

One of the most promising approaches to track locally hazardous driving circumstances is from local viewer reports. The #yegtraffic hashtag is over and over again used by the majority of users on Twitter reporting issues associated with the traffic within Edmonton, and #yyctraffic in Calgary.

If safe to do so, share your photos related to the weather by means of your Twitter accounts and using these hashtags. In addition, you can even post updates from your own community by making use of hashtags such as #abstorm and #yegwx so that your neighboring communities can keep them updated with the latest updates at all times.
