Winter weather information

winter weather continues Sept 29

Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for the Calgary area that indicates our region will likely receive around 10 cm of snow by this evening.

511 Alberta is indicating that Highway 1 near Chestermere is mostly snow/ice covered.

Drivers should prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions and reduced visibility. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

City Roads crews will be clearing primary routes first. After primary routes have been plowed, crews move onto secondary roadways, which include residential areas that are deemed impassable.

If snow continues to fall, the process of clearing primary roads will repeat until snow has stopped accumulating. For further details visit, https://chestermere.ca/425/Snow-Plowing

There are no current power outages reported in the Chestermere area, but information about power outages can be found and reported via https://service.fortisalberta.com/

Stay safe Chestermere!

Snowfall / Winter Storm Warning

Updated: Monday, Sept. 30:

The snowfall and winter storm warnings for our area have ended, but there's still snow & ice on roadways - Please slow down and consider postponing travel. 

511 Alberta is now indicating that Highway 1 and areas surrounding Chestermere are bare wet/dry or partly covered in snow and ice.


Sunday, Sept. 29:

A Snowfall Advisory and Winter Storm Warning have been issued for our area by Environment Canada. Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

511 Alberta has issued a travel advisory that extreme winter driving conditions have been reported across southern Alberta.

Travel is not advised south of Highway 1, between both the eastern and western borders of the province, due to poor visibility and heavy snowfall within this region.

A pacific weather system will continue to bring heavy snow to southern Alberta overnight on Sunday.

Strong easterly winds will combine with the falling snow to produce reduced visibilities in blowing snow.

Total snowfall accumulations are expected to be between 20 to 40 centimetres before the snow ends on Monday.


Instructions:

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

Rapidly accumulating snow will make travel difficult. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Road closures are possible.

If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone.

Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become difficult to navigate due to accumulating snow.

Take frequent breaks and avoid strain when clearing snow.


Additional Information:

More information and updates can be found on the Environment Canada website and on the City of Chestermere Facebook and Twitter pages.

Information about power outages can be found and reported via FortisAlberta.
