It’s May but winter just loves to ruin the party. 15cm+ has already fallen is pockets and the intense snow band is still stalled over Edmonton.
This is nearly the same kind of system that dumped 30-40cm on Wetaskiwin a week ago. It remains uncertain whether the same amounts will pile up in the Edmonton area.
Many trees are already in leaf due to the warm spring so damage can be expected.
Just like with the Apr 25th snowstorm the hardest hit areas are localised and will be followed by a warmup. GFS, CFS and GEM are consistent with temperatures in the mid to high 20s through next week.
Stay tuned for updates on accumulations and damage reports
