B.C. & Alberta: Snowy start to first weekend of April for Western Canada

Most of the snow from this system will have come to an end by Saturday morning in B.C. and Alberta, moving into Saskatchewan through the day, albeit with only light amounts. A chillier weekend lies ahead. Here's a detailed look at what to expect.

WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS

  • Snow lingers somewhat into early Saturday morning for parts of Alberta and the B.C. Interior
  • Light snow moves into Saskatchewan through the day Saturday
  • Below-seasonal temperatures linger through the weekend before milder conditions arrive
  • Keep ahead of active weather ALERTS in your area

SATURDAY: SNOW ENDS FOR B.C. AND ALBERTA, MOVES INTO SASKATCHEWAN

The heaviest snow from this system was in the higher elevations and mountains of the B.C. Interior, and it will be winding down there by the early morning hours of Saturday.

Alberta as well may see some flakes, but also winding down through the morning, with little in the way of significant accumulation. The system's next stop will be Saskatchewan, and southwestern parts of that province will also see some light snow before it finally comes to an end later in the day.

LOOKING AHEAD: WARMER TEMPERATURES NEXT WEEK

After a below-seasonal weekend, a Pacific ridge is expected to bring drier conditions to much of B.C. and Alberta — as Pacific air pushes onshore and farther east, milder temperatures and dry conditions await.

Temperatures could be between 15-20 degrees warmer than the weekend by mid-week for many.
