Snow has begun to blanket parts of northern Alberta, including in Fort McMurray and Grande Prairie, where residents woke up to the white stuff.
Environment Canada issued a special weather statement on Monday, saying a cool air mass will invade much of Alberta this week, “bringing with it weather that is decidedly more like winter than summer.”
That statement was later upgraded to a snowfall warning for parts of northern Alberta, where, when all is said and done, between 10 and 15 centimetres of snow could fall.
Several people sent in photos on Wednesday morning, and took to social media to share their frustration. After all, it is technically still summer for another 10 days. (Don’t shoot the messenger!)
