22 April 2009 - Wednesday

High: 7.0
Low: -3.0
Days we didn't see any sun: (21)
Days swept snow from drive (1)
Days shovelled snow from drive (20)

Most of the snow has now melted, but today the sky was pale and snowy. It was +4 first thing and there was a strong wind. Rain and snow have been forecast for next 3 days. The day did brighten up, but it didn't warm up much. By noon it was snowing and windy which continued into the evening.

There was a weather warning today in Okotoks, High River & claresholm: A band of snow that brought more than 10 centimetres of snow to the Rocky Mountain House region and the Nordegg region earlier today has now moved into Calgary. After initially melting on contact with the warm ground some of the snow is starting to accumulate. 5 to 10 centimetres of snow is likely in the Calgary area before the system moves south overnight.

The largest snowfall amounts will be along the foothills where temperatures are cooler. The system will move out of these regions this evening.
