“Snow has begun this morning along the Rockies and will spread eastward during the day. 10 to 20 cm of snow is expected by Wednesday evening with the potential for more than 30 cm over mountainous areas,” they wrote. 

“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow.”

If, of course, you rely on transit, it’s important to plan ahead in case of delays and dress warm!

In addition, remember to take breaks while clearing snow and don’t over-exert yourself!

Alberta winters are snow joke – especially at the beginning of the season.

Please drive safely, stay cozy and be smart! November has arrived, friends – and it’s making quite the entrance!
