UPDATE: Snowfall warning ended early Sunday morning.

It isn’t exactly the weekend weather Calgarians were hoping for.

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the city of Calgary and the mountain parks.

Up to 15 centimetres of snow fell overnight in Calgary with another 10 centimetres expected Saturday.

Forecasters say the heavy snow is expected to taper off Sunday morning but may develop again Sunday afternoon.

Snowfall warnings are also in effect for areas west of Calgary, including Banff, Canmore and Bragg Creek, as well as areas south of Calgary including Okotoks and High River.

Snow and ice are making travel on some highways potentially hazardous.

Travel is not recommended on Highway 1 in the Canmore area west of Calgary due to poor visibility.
