Southern Alberta woke to a spring snow storm this morning.
Heavy, wet snow amounting to about 10 centimeters turned to rain early this afternoon.
Calgary Police say they haven't seen a significant rise in the number of car accidents in the city because drivers are slowing down and being careful.
Outside Calgary though, it's a different story.
Airdrie's Integrated Traffic Unit and the RCMP have called in additional resources to deal with the increased numbers of collisions on Highway 2 between Calgary and Didsbury.
Officers have responded with Fire and Ambulance crews to at least five separate collisions along the Highway, but no serious injuries are reported.
Police are urging drivers to delay non-essential travel until highway conditions improve.
