BOW VALLEY – Environment Canada issued multiple snowfall warnings Thursday afternoon (June 6) for the Lake Louise, Banff, Canmore and Kananaskis region.

According to the warning, total amounts of up to 10 cm are expected, as a Pacific weather system develops in southern Alberta overnight.

The forecast stated the weather system is expected to bring an area of snow to the mountain park region. Banff and northern parts of Kananaskis could see the highest amounts of snow fall.

Heavy wet spring snow can cause tree branches to break, or affect those camping or travelling in the backcountry. It can also cause issues for drivers, as heavy accumulation can result in highways and roadways being difficult to navigate. There is also a chance of reduced visibility.

Go to Alberta 511 for up-to-date road conditions.
