While Environment Canada has not issued any warnings at this time, significant amounts of snow is expected for the Central Interior beginning late Thursday and well into Friday. 15 to 25 cm of snow is expected between Friday overnight and Saturday afternoon. Again, the above figures could change as the storm progresses.. (Warnings could come out later once Environment Canada understands what is expected)
Environment Canada suggests snow, heavy at times, on Friday. Accumulations will be greater than 10 cm in the morning. The wind will be another issue gusting up to 30 km/h and lasting all day Friday.
The temperature is also expected to drop to winter temperatures beginning Friday night and lasting well into next week. Night time lows will be in the minus 30 range. Daytime highs will be in the minus 20’s.
