Snowmaggedon; It’s Coming

An intense system of moisture is bound for Alberta, triggering Special Weather Statements and Winter Storm Watches for the west-central part of the province.

Hinton – Grande Cache and Whitecourt – Edson – Fox Creek – Swan Hills fall under the Winter Storm Watch, which is issued when 25 cm of snow or more is expected in a 24 hour period.  Snow is expected to start late Wednesday and last into the end of the week, producing upwards of 40 cm of snow in most areas, while amounts of 50 cm could be seen in some areas.

Areas south and to the west of Whitecourt fall under the Special Weather Statement, where areas such as Edmonton and Drayton Valley may see 20 cm of snow.

Accompanying the snow, will be bitter cold and winds.  Overnight lows may broach minus-30 by the weekend, with daily highs barely getting out of the negaitve-20s.  The intense winds could produce near zero-visibility as well.

XM 105 FM will have continued updates as the storm tracks its way through the area.
