It started to snow late last night and a large amount of snow has fallen overnight. It was still snowing this morning and was -3.2. It did not feel too cold outisde but the sky was snowy and there was no sun. It stopped snowing at around 10am. By around mid-day it was +6 and quite pleasant. The sun did come out, melting some of the snow.
Weather Warning in Okotoks, High River & Claresholm is still in place and has now been updated: Heavy snow is occurring with total snow accumulations of 10 to 40 centimetres expected.

Snow has tapered off in the City of Calgary and in the regions to the north of the city. The heaviest snow is now being reported across the regions south of Calgary from just east of highway 2 westward into the foothills. The snow area extends into the Lethbridge Cardston regions and south into Montana. Snow will taper off from the north during the day as the system producing the snow moves southward.

Up until 7 AM this morning the Calgary airport reported 13 centimetres and Springbank reported 23 centimetres of snow. The heaviest snow appears to have fallen just to the west of High River where the radar suggests snowfall amounts upwards of 25 centimetres overnight.
