On Tuesday afternoon a second weather alert was issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), this time for a snowfall warning. 

"A second round of heavy snow is expected to begin overnight tonight and continue through Wednesday. This long-duration snowfall event could produce total snowfall amounts as high as 30 to 50 centimetres, especially over areas with higher terrain."

According to the alert, areas in Calgary, specifically, western areas as well as higher elevations such as Nose Hill, are most likely to see 10 to 15 centimetres while other areas of the city will see much less.

"Snow will become lighter through Wednesday night then finally taper off to flurries Thursday evening. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult in some locations. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow."

Airdrie's forecast is currently predicting snow mixed with rain early this evening, with accumulations between five and 10 centimetres. On Wednesday snow will continue, with another five centimetres predicted. 

Motorists are reminded to prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions.
