Mounties are continuing to urge motorists to drive with extreme caution, as they responded to scores of collisions on Wednesday evening.

"Alberta RCMP were kept busy yesterday responding to collisions across the province. Police report that on the QE II between Edmonton and Calgary, RCMP responded to 52 collisions, three resulting in injuries," police stated on Thursday.

Additional serious collisions have been reported throughout the province. With the snow continuing to fall, RCMP expects poor driving conditions to continue.

"RCMP wish to reiterate if you do not have to travel, please stay home," police added

If you must travel, RCMP wants to advise motorists to use extreme caution, slow down and maintain an increased distance between yourself and other drivers.

Road conditions on the QEII towards Calgary have been reported to be partly covered in snow, with black ice and icy sections. Motorists have reported multiple cars in the ditch along the QEII corridor, both northbound and southbound of Airdrie.

Airdrie's local forecast is predicting upwards of four more centimetres to accumulate throughout the day, with light snow continuing Thursday night. Friday will also see snow, while the weekend will see a chance of flurries and snow on Saturday evening.
