Environment Canada has issued a winter storm watch for much of southwest Alberta, beginning sometime overnight tonight or early tomorrow morning.

Wind gusts of 60 km/h and warm temperatures of +10 Wednesday will give way to snow and wind-chill temperatures closer to minus 6 Thursday.

Snowfall amounts range anywhere from 5-10 cm inland away from the mountain ranges to up to 25 cm along the foothills.

Snow is expected to taper off Thursday night ahead of a cooler, drier trend that begins Friday and continues through Tuesday of next week.

The winter storm watch covers the Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass, and Cardston regions. As of noon, Wednesday, Lethbridge was not part of the advisory.
