Snow continues to fall across Alberta and southern Saskatchewan after a record-breaking weekend. Calgary broke snowfall records for September with 24.6 cm falling in a single day on Sunday, September 29.
Multiple roads are still closed, and collisions are ongoing. The Weather Network along with other experts are telling drivers to expect winter conditions for the remainder of the day and to drive safely.
“Hwy conditions throughout southern Alberta are currently poor with snow continuing to accumulate and reduced visibility,” 511 Alberta tweeted early Monday. “Conditions are expected to deteriorate further into Monday morning. Avoid all non-essential travel until conditions improve.”
According to The Weather Network, snowfall will begin to ease throughout Monday and conditions will improve as the day progresses; however, morning commutes are expected to be difficult. Several Alberta school boards have reported closures.
