Winds of 100 km/hr Batter Parts of Southern Alberta

Piercing winds blew through Calgary and across central and southern Alberta Tuesday morning, with forecasters saying gusts up to 100 km/h were possible.

Meanwhile, in parts of central Alberta, heavy snowfall together with strong winds created dangerous road conditions.

At 4:26 a.m. Tuesday, Environment Canada issued a wind warning for the City of Calgary and the surrounding region.

That warning was lifted at about 12:30 p.m. But wind warnings remained in effect Tuesday afternoon for much of eastern Alberta, from Cold Lake to as far south as Cypress Hills Provincial Park.

Wind warnings for the areas surrounding Lethbridge, Waterton Lakes National Park and Cardston ended after 9 a.m.

The strong winds developed overnight across central and southern Alberta, reaching 100 km/h.

Environment Canada warned that damage could occur to roofs and windows. Officials say to be aware of loose objects that can be easily picked up and carried by the wind.

Central Alberta hit by a double whammy

Heavy snowfall is blanketing parts of central Alberta, which is also experiencing strong winds. The region could get between 10 and 25 centimetres of snow.

Edmonton, St. Albert and Sherwood Park are under a snowfall warning and are anticipated to see winds blowing up to 70 km/h in the morning. The snowfall warning covers a swathe of central Alberta stretching from Fox Creek to Cold Lake.

The Bonnyville, St. Paul, Cold Lake and Lac La Biche area in east-central Alberta is still under a winter storm warning. Residents could see between 20 and 30 cm of snow before the precipitation tapers off later this afternoon.

A snowfall warning for the Grande Prairie, Beaverlodge and Valleview area ended mid-morning Tuesday.

Environment Canada warns that the combination of heavy snow and strong winds can make driving conditions more dangerous.

“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Take frequent breaks and avoid strain when clearing snow,” the agency cautioned in an advisory.
