The wind really picked up around mid-morning and there was a weather warning in effect, advising people to take necessary safety precautions in the High River, Okotoks and Claresholm areas.

It was +11 at around mid-day, but it began to snow early afternoon for the rest of the day.

A band of heavy snow along a cold front is sweeping south through
Southern Alberta. Behind this front strong winds with gusts up to
80 km/h are creating blowing snow with near zero visibilities.
These poor visibilities are expected to last for a brief time as the
front goes through. Conditions will improve later this evening.

Further details follow in the upcoming revised public forecast.
