Lloydminster residents should expect snow and colder temperatures this upcoming week.
Environment Canada meteorologist Alysa Pederson says a low-pressure system is developing in Southern Alberta and will make its way north-east to the Border City and the Battlefords dropping 5 to 10 centimetres of snow.
“A high-pressure surface ridge will move into Alberta and that brings north winds down from the Northwest Territories and cold air with it. Highs are going to be dropping to the mid-minus twenties or possibly minus thirties by mid-next week.”
Pederson says the temperatures are expected to stay at this level before returning to the seasonal average of around minus 12 later in the month. She reminds drivers to be safe during their travels as a mixture of snow and wind will bring poor driving conditions.
