The Grande Prairie region is bracing for a winter storm. Environment Canada says 15 to 25 centimetres of snow by Sunday morning is in the forecast, with a winter storm warning still in effect for the region.
Flakes are already falling in parts of the Peace, and snow is expected to continue to develop in the west-central part of Alberta. It should move to the north and east, eventually reaching Edmonton by Friday morning.
Snow will likely continue throughout Friday and Saturday, heavy at times. It will also come with strong winds that will blow snow and reduce visibility in open areas and along exposed highways.
Drivers are asked to consider postponing any non-essential travel until conditions improve. Environment Canada says visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at time of heavy snow and blowing snow.
