On Monday afternoon, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) issued a special weather statement for Airdrie.

"A significant change in weather is coming this week, with cooler temperatures and snow expected. Warm, above-normal temperatures on Tuesday will be quickly followed by a multi-day snow event," the statement read

ECCC warned that snowfall amounts will vary greatly between the mountainous regions and areas to the east.

"Snowfall totals for areas along the foothills and in the mountain parks: 10 to 30 centimetres. For areas east of Highway 2: five to 10 centimetres."

Snow will begin Tuesday night along the northern foothills and progress southward on Wednesday. Snow will continue on Wednesday, eventually spreading eastward towards the Saskatchewan border on Thursday, with the snow ending on Friday.
