Amidst a snowfall warning, and with upwards of 15 centimetres likely to fall in the next 24 hours, roads are reported to be partly covered in snow and icy.

The QEII heading Southbound towards Calgary City limits has blowing snow with icy sections, as well as icy wheel paths, and black ice. Heading Northbound from Airdrie, similar conditions have been reported. However, Highway 2A, towards Crosffield is completely covered in snow, with icy sections and slippery wheel paths also indicated. 

On Tuesday afternoon, before the evening's snowfall, Mounties warned motorists to stay off the roads if travel was unnecessary.

"Traditionally, the region between Airdrie and Innisfail on the QEII has been an area of great concern," police stated. "If you must travel, RCMP wants to advise motorists to use extreme caution, slow down and maintain an increased distance between yourself and other drivers."

The snowfall warning continues to be in effect for Airdrie and much of Alberta.

"10 to 30 centimetres of snow is expected by Friday morning across southern Alberta. Most regions will receive 10 to 15 centimetres of snow but a few locations could see as much as 30 centimetres," the warning stated.
