March 9, 2010 — A little bit of snow is expected to hit Alberta tonight, but after that, mild temperatures return.

It won't be a blast of winter, but it could certainly be enough to make for some messy road conditions in Alberta.

Especially along the foothills.

Lethbridge is one area that could see up to 10 centimetres of snow through tonight. Calgary and Edmonton may see some more light snow, but only 1 to 3 centimetres is expected.

The Weather Network's meteorologist Michelle Cassar says this storm won't lead to any back breaking shovelling for residents.

“This is just a little upper level disturbance and it is sure to move out of there by Wednesday. The region can expect to return to mild and dry weather tomorrow.”

And it's the mild and dry weather the region has been used to lately.

From February 24th to March 8th, Edmonton has seen an average temperature of 3 degrees. That's a big change from the seasonal value. Usually at this time of year the city is sitting at minus 2 degrees.

Meanwhile, in Calgary it's been even warmer. On average, the area has been seeing temperatures around 8 degrees for the past couple of weeks. That's 6 degrees above seasonal for the city.

So if residents can deal with this latest dose of winter, there will be more mild temperatures to look forward to later this week.
