A low pressure system developing in southern Alberta this morning has reportedly started to spread snow across portions of central and northern Alberta. Over the next 24 hours, the low is expected to continue to intensify with the heaviest snowfall across central and northern Alberta late Thursday afternoon and overnight.

Environment Canada still isn’t sure exactly where the heaviest snowfall will be, and how much is expected. Snowfall warnings could be issued later today. The forecast for Grande Prairie is calling for five to 10 centimetres Thursday and two to four centimetres overnight.
