Wednesday, September 10, 2014, 10:57 AM – “Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions.”
Despite the fact that it’s officially still summer, that’s the latest warning from Environment Canada early Wednesday as accumulating, drifting snow has resulted in deteriorating driving conditions.
“Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas,” EC says.
Snow is drier and more susceptible to blowing, drifting and not melting on contact with roads,” adds The Weather Network’s Chris Murphy.
Several people took to Twitter Wednesday morning to report the messy conditions on the roads.
“Roads are super slick, drive slowly and carefully!,” one Albertan said.
“It is so messy and the slush pulls u in every direction,” another Weather Network fan tweeted.
