It was quite a cold start to the day and the sky was white.

We have the following warning for today & tomorrow. Storms like this are usual for this time of year, but usually the snow melts quickly as the temperatures are higher, unfortunately coupled with the storm we are also having below average temperatures, meaning the snow may hang around:

Snowfall warning for Okotoks, High River & Claresholm:
A low pressure system is forecast to develop in Montana tonight with heavy snow redeveloping over southwestern Alberta this evening. This system is expected to produce 10 to 30 centimetres of snow by noon Sunday. Current computer models indicate the areas west of Calgary and south along the foothills should receive the heaviest amounts. Snowfall accumulations of 10 centimetres are expected in southern portions of Banff region. Snow will begin to taper off along the northern foothills Sunday morning and along southern foothills Sunday afternoon.
