A winter storm warning continues for the Central Alberta region as Red Deerians woke up to the ground covered in a blanket of snow.
Snow is expected to continue through the early afternoon in Red Deer with between 1-3 cms falling.
According the The Weather Network, “A low pressure system is bringing snow to portions of the province today. Snowfall totals for parts of southeastern Alberta will exceed 20 cm by this evening with the highest amounts expected near the Cypress Hills. Snowfall amounts near Calgary will be closer to 10 cm.
“Strong winds of 60 gusting to 90 km/h have also developed this morning with this system. These strong winds will combine with the falling snow to reduce visibilities in blowing snow in some areas. The strongest winds are expected to subside on this afternoon.
“Snow will taper off this afternoon through Drumheller, Calgary and Coronation and this night through the far south.”
