Winter storm watch for
City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park issued
Winter storm with heavy snow and blowing snow starting Sunday.
The potential for severe winter weather exists over these regions.
An intense winter storm is forecast to develop and move into British Columbia on Sunday. Associated with this system, snow at times heavy will spread into Northwestern Alberta early Sunday morning. As the storm winds up, it will track southeastward into Central Alberta by Sunday evening and continue into Southern Alberta overnight. Total snowfall amounts by Tuesday morning will generally exceed 10 cm. Meanwhile areas in Central and Southern Alberta, especially those regions close to the foothills, could see more than 30 cm.
In the wake of the storm system on Monday, strong northerly winds will develop and usher in cold Arctic air. Winds gusting above 60 km/h will produce extensive blowing snow over Central and Southern Alberta. Over open areas including Major Highways, visibilities will deteriorate to blizzard conditions where travel would not be advised.
As the Arctic high builds into the province on Tuesday, winds will diminish gradually from the north and temperatures will drop to near minus twenty.
At this time the track of the storm system and amount of heavy snow and blowing snow is uncertain. As the arrival of the storm nears and the situation becomes clearer, warnings will be issued as necessary.
A winter storm watch is an alert of the potential development of severe winter weather. Persons in or near these areas should be prepared for developing adverse weather conditions and should listen for updated watches and possible warnings
