Special winter weather statement issued for Alberta as winter arrives



Winter is coming.

That's the message literally from Environment Canada to Albertans ahead of the weekend, when an Arctic air mass is expected to pummel the last remnants of autumn into wintry submission.

"Winter arrives this weekend," the agency said in its special weather statements.

According to meteorologists with the weather agency, a Pacific weather system will collide with a cold dome of Arctic air to bring significant snow, a risk of freezing rain and the end of patio season to southern Alberta.

A deep freeze is expected to follow.

Snow has already started falling in Grande Prairie and Edmonton, with accumulations of about 10 centimetres.

The northwestern Foothills are expected to see 20 to 25 centimetres, while central and southern parts of Alberta should see between five and 15 centimetres.

Areas from Red Deer to Lethbridge could see freezing rain Saturday evening and into early Sunday morning.

Calgary could also see freezing rain overnight.

The cold Arctic front will move in behind the snow, causing temperatures to plummet through the day Sunday.

By Monday, temperatures will drop to 18 C with the wind chill making it feel closer to 25 C in much of southern Alberta.

There are 17 special weather statements issued in total, four freezing rain warnings and eight snowfall warnings in effect.

In my neck of the woods we've got about 3" so far. Wife went to city today and said hwy was slipperier than a greased eel in a bucket of snot. Helped neighbour hang a cow today and worked around the land and wasn't really too affected but tomorrow I'll probably break out the boots which is the surest sign of winter for our family.

If it can snow it is too cold.

Snowed in a day after I got my winter supplies in, whatever shall I do to pass time for the next 6 months? highs of -15 means whoever gets the cold in the south will also get moisture in unpleasant ways. Not looking for bets but east of the line between the GOM and the Great Lakes should get a lot more and Texas better start putting in low barriers in the flash flood area as they are a bit shy on trees and beavers. In return you get land that is worthless to it being a viable pasture worth double digits per acre. Minus -25 means the outdoor rinks will be use by Remembrance Day, can't remember when the last time that happened.

The cold in Alberta is early, if it leaves earlier in the spring the that is a normal winter, if it lasts longer then that could be a sign that longer winters will become the normal winter.

With snow in the north, parts of the parched south in the US will be some moisture, more than normal, if they capture it rather than let it erode the land it is no longer a desert, it is a pasture on it's way to becoming a field.
The beavers you are looking for are in Nevada, every county except Clark County.

I donate use of the new holland T9 with the blade. That sucker equals several hundred shovels but I feel it should be buried deeper.

How old are you now? The odds are you are too old to learn even with help, still mention Russia and you go off of some rant caused by a recent would, that being something you have read or heard about rather than experienced.

I'm going to assume more than just the Police are now wearing new winter radials, that isn't always the case when snow comes to parts of BC and/or Georgia. If North Dakota missed the blizzard warnings that left the cattle out to fend for themselves the perhaps they are now more valuable alive than as an insurance write-off. (not going to hold my breath on that one)

STOP Your 'helping me' is taking away the burm of snow that I put along the north of the house as it cuts the wind. The 'shelves' are for putting food like things on once the shadows never get above 'zero'.
Different 'zero' than when the term is used to describe your overall status of 'overall value to society'.

With the ground frozen that is about the only time I would trust you and the usuals suspects with shovels and all eyes on me, . . . know what I mean?

Was that hit on the head intentional or an accident? Intentional would be a lot of small blows, accidents involve metallic objects moving at speed so once is more than enough times to 'alter perspectives'. Not just in paths being routed around the damaged area but the 'gut reaction' that it would cause also is an injury that needs treatment. If you got burned it teaches respect for hot things, if it makes yo avoid them the the phobia is doing more than the task calls for. If you are like some you will love to play with fire and do it as safety as possible while accepting that if things do go wrong you have nobody to thank or blame than yourself. Danger is also relative, some people driving a golf kart wide open is showing more bravery than somebody who isn't satisfied with one that has 6 gears.

Wher you from because an ******* like yoursef would have been say on a hot stove at least once in your past, for most once is enough. I didn't realize you spoke for Alberta.

If you think I care how many threads the retards want to prove just how fitting that term is you have that part wrong also. If you think I care you are one of their members you have that part wrong also. There is enough of you that you keep confirming that this is the right crowd to be in if you think heat hardens steel.

I'm pretty sure it is a phobia when a report is made because I can open the door and look is now suspect or whatever it is that has the trolls in such a bad mood so often. Kind of makes you wonder what their owners are like.

Shovels?... Are you insane?

What I need is a strong supply of rye and beer - and the bloody cable providers better not disrupt my hockey!... There will be hell to pay.

Oh, and maybe some food and related supplies just in case the roads are impassable
