    How Much Snow Wednesday through Thursday?

    11/17/2010, 3:36:30 AM

    The second in a series of storms will bring more snow to western Canada Wednesday through Thursday. The storm will track through central British Columbia then turn southeastward into southern Saskatchewan during the period.

    A moist, southwest flow will bring another round of heavy snowfall to the British Columbia ski resorts. Snow levels will drop to about 1,000 to 1,500 feet over southwestern British Columbia as the colder air works in behind the storm.

    There will also be a narrow band of moderate snow just north of the storm track across the Prairies. Cities such as Calgary and Saskatoon should end up with about 8-15 cm of snow.

    The next storm later this week will have less moisture, but it will be even colder with a more southerly track and Arctic air just to the north, so it looks like the low valleys and coastal areas of southwestern British Columbia are in for some accumulating snow during the Thursday night through Saturday night period. More on that later.
