If you are in any part of Southern Alberta or are planning to go anytime soon, be prepared to keep yourself warm and travel safely. The Environment Canada and the Weather Network had warned of up to 60 cm of snow last weekend. A sunny fall day in Calgary might not predict any serious shift in the weather, but warnings for the winter storms have already been issued for the nearby areas like Cardston, Fort Macleod, Magrath, Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek, Waterton Lakes National Park, Kananaskis, Canmore, Okotoks, High River, and Claresholm. According to the Weather Network, Calgary would see roughly 5 to 10 cm of snowfall by today, Medicine Hat at 5 to 15 cm, Jasper at 5 to 15 cm, and the area south of Lethbridge at an alarming 30 to 60 cm.
So, what to do?
• With snowfall and storms, there is a high chance for reduced visibility. Drive at a safe speed and maintain a safe stopping distance.
• Trees may also break with the storm. So, scan your surroundings carefully while you are driving.
• Dress comfortably for the weather. Make sure you have gloves, boots and warm socks.
• Eat healthy and stay hydrated.
