Just when southern Albertans may have thought it was time for coffee on the deck and walks in shirtsleeves, Mother Nature is throwing us a curveball.
And it’s not a late April Fool’s joke.
After getting a brief taste of spring, we are headed back to winter in coming days.
Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement that calls for a multi-day snow event as a cold front sweeps through the province today.
Snow was expected to start last night along the northern foothills and progress southward today. That snowfall is predicted to intensify on Thursday and spread to Saskatchewan, ending here on Friday.
The heaviest accumulation of snow is expected along the foothills and in mountain parks with a total of 10 to 30 centimetres possible by Friday.
Lethbridge residents today can expect a high of 16 with between two and four millimetres of rain or less than one centimetre of snow.
On Thursday, between five and 10 cm is in the forecast with a high of only 1. More snow is forecast for Friday with one to three centimetres predicted while Saturday, Lethbridge residents may seen between two and four millimetres of rain or less than one centimetre of snow.
On Green Shirt Day Sunday, there is a 70 per cent chance of less than five millimetres of rain or less than one centimetre of snow.
