An intense low-pressure system will bring blizzard-like conditions to areas of southern and central Alberta, and Saskatchewan starting Saturday. As well as this, parts of western Manitoba can expect the same winter storm conditions Sunday into Monday.
On Saturday, we can expect the bulk of the snow (amounts of 10-15 cm) from east-central Alberta through central Saskatchewan to west-central Manitoba.
We can expect 20-30 cm of snow in areas from Medicine Hat, through southern Saskatchewan, to just east of Regina on Sunday and much of Monday. Furthermore, winds are forecasted to gust up to 60 km/h along this stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway which will cause blizzard-like conditions and subsequent reduced visibility. Due to this, roads such as the Trans-Canada Highway, will likely be closed. Flights will also likely be delayed or cancelled. While this specific round of heavy snow will end Monday evening for most areas, we can expect sporadic periods of snow next week with below-average temperatures throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
