Snow, rain forecast as Environment Canada issues special weather statement for southern Alberta

A forecasted abrupt weather change has prompted Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for southern Alberta, including the Lethbridge region.

The statement was issued just after 5 a.m. on Monday, April 15th because forecasted changes are expected to see a significant decline after what Environment Canada calls “a stretch of above-average spring temperatures.” With the dip in temperatures, the cold front is also expected to bring rain and snow in some areas.

The statement says “Precipitation will start as rain before changing to snow. The transition from rain to snow will begin this evening north of the Calgary area, and overnight near Calgary. Regions closer to the Saskatchewan and American borders will see rain for a longer duration before eventually switching to snow on Tuesday.”

Some areas that get snow could get five to 10 cm by Wednesday morning, although Environment Canada says it is uncertain how much snowfall will accumulate. Cooler temperatures are expected to continue throughout the rest of the week.
