A fast moving area of low pressure will bring some snow to our area tonight into the early morning commute tomorrow. This system is a typical or classic Alberta Clipper.
These little systems can be full of surprises. This one looks straight forward.
Tonight: Light snow arrives around 10 - 11 pm and continues most of the night before taping off by 8 am. Most accumulation will occur from midnight to 6 am. Again mostly light snow, with some heavier bursts possible.
The HRRR model is handling the storm very nicely. This is a simulated radar pic for tomorrow morning at 4 am and next to it is the HRRR predicted snow amounts. These will be some "fluff" factor in this snowfall that could boost the amounts a little more.
If you don't like the cold weather there is some good news ... we grow milder Sun and Mon with a possibly messy storm for Tue (snow/ice/rain) then it turns much colder until the end of next week where another messy storm may occur.
It is winter. It is acting like winter.
Enjoy. It is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it!
