Chance of snow for Athabasca

Area may see afternoon flurries, light snow overnight
Environment Canada's 7-day forecast is calling for low chances of snow or rain April 16, and light snow into the early morning of April 17.

ATHABASCA — Albertans in the south of province awoke to another white blanket spread across roads, sidewalks, and deck furniture, and according to Environment Canada’s forecast, residents in the Athabasca area may wake tomorrow to a similar sight. 

Environment Canada’s seven-day forecast is calling for a low chance of flurries or rain showers in the afternoon of Tuesday, April 16. Light snow is anticipated to begin in the late evening into overnight but is expected to stop before morning. 

The seven-day forecast for Calgary is projecting around 5 centimetres of precipitation, more than Athabasca is likely to see, but the warm weather of summer will remain out of reach for the rest of week in this section of Northern Alberta. 

High winds will continue over the next two days, with northerly gusts ranging from 30 to 50 kilometres an hour this afternoon. Tomorrow, wind speeds are expected to reach 20 km/h around noon. 

Skies are anticipated to be clear until Sunday, with weekday temperatures reaching a high of 10 C on Saturday, and up to 13 C on Sunday. Nighttime lows over the week are expected to dip below double digits, reaching as low as minus 11 Thursday night.
