We are about to get walloped over the next 36 hours with 25 cms of heavy wet snow. Looks much like a NL type system; this from EC:
City of Edmonton - St. Albert - Sherwood Park
4:27 AM MDT Wednesday 04 April 2012
Winter storm warning for
10 to 20 centimetres of snow developing tonight into Thursday.
This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.
An intense spring storm will move north through Central Alberta this evening. Heavy snow will begin in the Drayton Valley and Leduc regions this evening and spread north to Slave Lake overnight. The heavy snow will continue through Thursday with accumulations to 25 cm centimetres forecast across the regions. The storm will also produce strong northerly winds which will combine with the falling snow to give near zero visibility at times.
This winter storm can produce poor travelling conditions. Persons in or near these areas should be on the lookout for adverse weather conditions and listen for updated warnings.
Good luck, Sinc. Last week, EC forecast 10-15cm .......... then 15-20cm ......... then 20-30cm .................. and we got 14cm on Friday and 30cm on Saturday, for a total of 44cm in a 30 hour time period. Hopefully, they will again be incorrect on the downside for you folks.
