CALGARY -- Spring may have just started but a quick blast of wintry weather starts off the new week.

A low pressure system moves across Alberta on Sunday night, bringing a chance of snow to the mountain parks and northern sections of the province.

By Monday afternoon, a chance of rain or snow over west central regions spreads further south.

This could bring some flurries to Calgary, but the snow mostly remains over the foothills, and southeast towards Lethbridge.

Snowfall totals in some parts of southern Alberta may exceed 5 cm by Tuesday morning.

Lesser amounts are forecasted for Calgary and central regions.
