Drumheller - Three Hills
Brooks - Strathmore - Vulcan
Cypress Hills Provincial Park - Foremost

Blizzard conditions with poor visibility in snow and blowing snow are expected or occurring. Blizzard conditions are expected to develop over south eastern Alberta this evening and continue overnight. Strong winds near 50 km/h with gusts up to 90 km/h and plentiful falling snow will give greatly reduced visibilities with periods of whiteout conditions including over eastern sections of the Trans Canada Highway.
Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility. If you must travel, keep others informed of your schedule and destination and carry an emergency kit and mobile phone. Blizzard warnings are issued when widespread reduced visibilities of 400 metres or less are expected for at least 4 hours.
