Major Snowfall Alert


3:37 PM MST Wednesday 07 February 2018
Winter storm warning in effect for:
  • City of Calgary
Significant amounts of snow, with total amounts of 25 to 35 cm is expected.

An area of heavy snow, currently from Grande Cache to Medicine Hat, including the mountain parks, continues to intensify as it moves southward. Heavy snow will continue through tonight and most of the day Thursday before beginning to gradually taper off Thursday evening.

In the mountain parks and along the foothills snowfall accumulations may reach as high as 50 cm in a few localities, especially over higher terrain.
Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.

By tomorrow morning Calgary should have accumulated 25-30 cm of snow, plus an additional 5-10 cm during Thursday will make tomorrow's commute for drivers a literal crawl drive.

Although I will be driving in the early morning to the SE Hospital, I will try to take the transit during tomorrow... I'm thinking it'll be safer in the long run. We have company coming in from PEI on Saturday @ 1AM, so I'm hopeful the roads and Deerfoot will be clear by then.
