The gusting winds on Thursday morning which are causing blowing snow and snow drifts on roads across Airdrie and the surrounding areas are causing problems for Motorists.

There are reports of the tandem trailer that has been pushed by the wind towards the Southbound Veteran's Boulevard exit onto the QEII, which means that drivers will have to slow down to avoid the trailer.

Southbound QEII toward Calgary is slippery with black ice and icy wheel paths. There are strong winds and drifting snow across the highway making for reduced visibility. 

North of Airdrie, heading towards Crossfield there is also reduced visibility and icy conditions.

The wind gusts are expected to continue throughout the day, reaching 70 km/h at some points.
