Happy March 1! Mother Nature is reminding us it is still officially winter – at least for a couple more weeks.

Expect another cold, snowy day for Saturday. It’s from a stateside system that will drive widespread snow into southern and central Alberta throughout the day.

Highway 2  from the U.S. border to Edmonton will be treacherous at times on Saturday with bursts of heavy snow and blowing snow. The eastern half of the province will likely see even heavier snow:

The snow will let up for Calgary and western Alberta on Sunday, but will continue for the eastern half. It’s best to keep the winter coat available for a while. We will hold onto daytime highs in the minus double digits until Tuesday of next week. Then we will start a noticeable warming trend.
