Carmacks crews were out in force Wednesday night and into Thursday morning as the province has authorized around-the-clock snow maintenance on Deerfoot Trail during the winter storm.

Heavy snow hit the north country Wednesday.

A winter storm is about to wallop Calgary and the surrounding areas. A potentially significant winter storm is expected to affect portions of the Midwest as early as Thursday evening.

A foot or more of snow will fall across these areas during this time from around Pulaski to just south of Watertown and out across the Tug Hill Plateau.

Saturday morning will start overcast and cold, before light snow develops late in the afternoon and continues through late evening with between 2 and 3 inches of accumulation.

That's not good for travel on Wednesday, so plan ahead.

Farther north and east, the storm is still expected to drop 12"+ of snow on the Hi-Line and across central Montana. The snow is expected to end Friday".

Because of the tight gradient in snowfall amounts, any small shift in the track could change the expected snowfall greatly.

The snow projection comes after officials issued a travel advisory for all of Jefferson County, noting that roads were "snow-covered and slippery", and that there was limited visibility in several locations.
