A multi-day snowfall warning for Airdrie and the surrounding areas has been lifted. Nearly 12 centimetres of snow was recorded to have fallen between Monday and Wednesday. However, the precipitation trend is not going away just yet.

Environment and Climate Canada Meteorologist, Natalie Hazel, said that while there are a few days towards the end of this week that will see drier, warmer weather in Airdrie, residents can expect rain in the coming days and possibly weeks ahead.

"A lot of our models are pointing to precipitation from May 6 till May 9; some of the outliers [for the middle of the month are predicting] rather large amounts," Hazel explained.

Forecasts for Airdrie predict a chance of showers on Monday, followed by rain on Tuesday and into Wednesday. While Hazel noted that for the most part, the precipitation should be in the form of rain as both daytime and nighttime temperatures will be warm, one can never write off snow. 

"Most models are putting your temperatures both during the day and at night, above zero, so, I would expect this to be rain or at the very worst snow melting on contact," she added.

Mid-May has yet to emerge with a dominant weather trend, although according to the Farmer's Alamanc, the middle of the month is predicted to be sunny and mild, while the end of the month, will bring about more showers and cooler temperatures. 

Despite the snowfall warning being in place for several days earlier this week and despite quite the snow dump, Hazel said that no snowfall records were broken; this may have been due to little accumulation as snow that fell over the past several days was mixed with rain. She added that while March is the snowiest month, April is the second snowiest, which makes the past several days not at all unusual. 

The snow and rain have also meant that a previous fire advisory for West Rocky View County was lifted on Wednesday, although the fire advisory for East Rocky View County remains in place. Mountain View County also announced that the previously announced fire restriction has also been lifted.
