Windy, Rainy, and Snowy Conditions Expected Wednesday in Parts of the Prairies: #ABStorm #SKStorm
A fast-moving area of low pressure will bring stormy conditions to parts of eastern Alberta, and areas in southern and central Saskatchewan.
We will see temperatures above the freezing level in most areas and as a result, most of the precipitation that will fall will do so in the form of a rain/snow mix. While most areas will not receive much accumulation of snow, areas in central Saskatchewan where the temperatures will be cooler will receive higher amounts:
As my forecast map above suggests, 5-15 cm of snow is possible in parts of southwestern and central Saskatchewan today. The city of Saskatoon will experience anywhere between 5-10 cm of snow, however, the rain will also be mixed in especially when the temperature warms up in the afternoon.
In some parts of eastern Alberta, as well as southern and central Saskatchewan, wind gusts could reach up to 100 km/h.
This low-pressure system is forecasted to move eastward to bring the same type of weather to southern and central Manitoba.
