The first significant snowfall of the season is expected in Airdrie and the area. 

Snow developed over west-central Alberta last night and is moving towards the east and south today. Snowfall amounts will vary greatly across the province due to initially warm ground temperatures and the duration of snowfall over some regions.

We saw a freezing drizzle overnight and it's continued this morning. Snow will begin later today and end by Tuesday evening. With the totals expected to be about 5 to 15 cm. Higher amounts are possible along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains and in the mountain parks.

Be prepared to adjust your driving to changing road conditions. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult in some locations. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop.
