UPDATE: Grande Prairie region under snowfall warning

UPDATE: The winter storm watch for the Grande Prairie – Beaverlodge – Valleyview region has been upgraded to a snowfall warning. 10 to 15 centimetres of snow is expected in parts of central and northern Alberta.

Environment Canada says it should start over west central regions Thursday afternoon and head northeast overnight and throughout Friday.

Environment Canada says they expect blowing winds and snow to move into the Peace region Thursday night. The heaviest snow is expected to fall in an area that extends from Peace River to Grande Prairie and then eastwards into the Whitecourt and Barrhead regions.

Environment Canada says there is still some uncertainty as to how the storm will move through the province though. That means the watch may be adjusted.

Travel is not recommended as strong winds could mean visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Conditions are expected to improve Friday night as the system moves out of the province.

Records show March 22, 2010 saw nine centimeters of snow, the record for that day. This system could produce 10cm to 20cm.
