It was snowing again this morning and there was a fair amount of snow on the ground. The sky was white and cloudy and it felt quite cold. The roads were slushy but not too bad if care was taken.

There was snow in the air for most of the day, but it didn't really stick and most of yesterdays/this mornings snow had melted.

The following Winter Storm Watch has been issued today: Snowfall warning for Okotoks, High River & Claresholm (upgraded from winter storm watch)
Heavy snow for southern Alberta continues until Wednesday.

An intense weather system is producing heavy snow over Claresholm, Cardston and Crowsnest Pass regions this morning. Amounts near 10 centimetres have been reported overnight. This system is very slow moving and will continue to intensify today and tonight. Another 10 to 15 centimetres of snow is forecast for today in the Crowsnest Pass and Cardston regions as well as the southern part of the Okotoks region including Claresholm. Tonight the snow will spread eastward into the southern Lethbridge region including Milk River and the Cypress Hills region. Heavy snow will continue to fall across southern Alberta through Tuesday. Another 10 to 20 centimetres is expected tonight and Tuesday with up to 30 centimetres in the foothills. As well, strong northerly winds developing on Tuesday will produce poor visibilities in blowing snow at times. Snow will continue into Wednesday.
