As much as 20 centimeters of snow is expected to fall on Friday, with Environment Canada issuing a snowfall warning for the area.


We were on the cusp of spring -- well, no more. Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Prince Albert area on Friday. 

A storm system developing over southern Alberta Thursday night is expected to continue on through Saskatchewan on Friday, bringing with it a large area of precipitation across the southern half of the province.

Areas north of the Yellowhead Highway will be hardest hit, Environment Canada notes -- an area the Prince Albert area is well within.

Highway travel is expected to be impacted throughout the holiday weekend.

“Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions,” Environment Canada warns.

“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.”
