An all-out blizzard slammed Alberta, Canada, including the Calgary area, on Monday. Locally, more than 60 cm or nearly two feet of snow fell and resulted in dangerous travel conditions.
"Strong north winds gusting over 80 km/h created blizzard conditions Monday in Alberta, making travel extremely difficult if not impossible," AccuWeather.com Expert Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.
Kootenay Pass, Alberta, received 61 cm (24 inches) of snow, while Paulson Summit received 44 cm (17.3 inches). Amounts were lighter at Calgary International Airport, where 14 cm (5.5 inches) of snow were measured.
The high winds throughout much of Alberta caused significant blowing and drifting of snow, adding to poor travel conditions.
