Pack your winter gear if you're heading west this weekend..
For anyone planning on travel into western SK or southern AB this weekend, you had better bring along some winter gear and maybe a shovel. Ingredients are coming together for a powerful and prolonged late season winter storm to affect southern AB and western SK over the weekend, possibly lingering into Tuesday over portions of western SK. Heavy snow and strong winds may bring near blizzard conditions to these areas Sunday through Monday, especially along the SK/AB border where up to 50 cm of snow may fall in some areas by the time this storm winds up Tuesday. Luckily for southern MB the storm will weaken by the time it comes through here by mid week, although we will get colder with a possibility of snowshowers.. but at this point, nothing like what they will be experiencing out west this weekend! (Models hinting at a possibility of accumulating snow for us late next week, but we'll think positive for now!)
