Record-warm temperatures, hurricane-strength winds and heavy snow. People living in Alberta have seen it all this week.

Another system swept across the province on Wednesday, bringing about 10 cm of snow to places like Red Deer and Calgary. Significant snowfall amounts were also reported in higher elevations.

The City of Calgary declared Wednesday an official snow event and initiated a parking ban starting at 8 p.m. It requires residents to remove their vehicles from roadways so city crews can plow routes indicated by the designated signs.

On Thursday, Environment Canada issued wind warnings for the Hinton/Grande Cache areas, where strong southwesterly winds with gusts up to 90 km/h will persist into the evening.

Drivers are being reminded to watch for drifting and blowing conditions as the winds pick up.
