Winter Snow Advisory
Environment Canada has issued a winter snowfall advisory for the Calgary area for Monday, October 23. It is expected that over 20 cms of snow will fall on Calgary between Monday and Tuesday. The City of Calgary is advising Calgarians travelling during this time to use extreme caution when heading out on their journey, leave plenty of time to get to their destination, and if possible delay their trip, or make alternate arrangements.
Windchills can also contribute to winter conditions by making outdoor temperatures feel lower, so be sure to bundle up before you head out. Windchill can create icy conditions on roads and sidewalks, particularly in the early morning hours.
City crews are working around the clock to respond to the snow, however some snow hitting the ground may melt on contact with warmer road surfaces and could freeze overnight. Crews are applying material to help minimize icy buildup, and additional contracted resources have been activated to help respond to the snow.
Calgarians are encouraged to visit Calgary.ca/snow to learn more about The City’s Priority Snow plan and how we respond to winter storms.
