An Alberta Clipper is barreling towards the region and is expected to drop near 10 cm of snow by Tuesday afternoon.

The impending low-pressure system has led Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement for the region.

The weather agency says, "snow is expected to begin Monday evening and spread eastwards throughout Monday night. Total snowfall accumulations near 10 cm are expected by Tuesday afternoon, with a few locations possibly reaching 15 cm."

"Strong northwesterly or northerly winds gusting 50 to 60 km/h on Tuesday may produce blowing snow leading to reduced visibilities at times. Difficult travel conditions are expected."
