Computer models still having some disagreement in regards to the speed of the storm coming into Alberta later Wednesday, Wednesday night and early Thursday. Regardless of that, we are still pretty confident that parts of the extreme southern Canadian Rockies and up into central Alberta will see a significant accumulation of snow.
The heaviest accumulations will be Wednesday night.
Keep in mind, the snowfall forecast below that I drew up is just through Wednesday night. There will likely be additional accumulations Thursday morning from central Alberta on northeast.
Eastern and southeastern parts of Alberta will be too warm for snow as the storm center tracks right over or just to the west.
Quite a winter for Whistler/Blackcomb Ski Resort!
