Snowfall warning for
City of Calgary continued

10 to 20 centimetres of snow overnight into Friday morning.

A disturbance moving into Northern Montana continues to spread significant amounts of moisture across Southern Alberta. At the same time moderate northeasterly flow in the low levels is gradually injecting cooler air into the system. As a result rainfall will change to snow in most areas early this evening if it hasn't already done so. Snowfall amounts as high as 20 cm are possible especially in the foothills and over higher terrain. Due to warm ground temperatures much of the snow will initially melt however most areas can still expect to see 10 cm of snow on the ground by Friday morning.

Further east in the Brooks and Lethbridge regions rainfall will become mixed with snow overnight however significant snowfall accumulations are not expected in these areas and a rainfall warning is still in effect.

Precipitation should ease throughout the day Friday as the system moves eastward.
