EDMONTON -- An arctic front lying across northern Alberta will likely produce a bit of snow in the the Peace River region today.

But, it's tonight that could bring a few centimetres of snow to areas from Peace River/Grande Prairie east through Slave Lake and on towards Lac La Biche/Bonnyville.


For the most part, that precipitation is expected to stay north of the Edmonton region tonight.

We'll get a warm mid-teens afternoon with morning sun giving way to a few clouds this afternoon.

Wind is expected to become a bit gusty midday and through the early afternoon hours... about 20 km/h gusting to 40 km/h.


Cooler air drops into the Edmonton region overnight and we'll get a high in the 5 to 10 degree range Tuesday afternoon.


More snow is possible in the Peace Country late Tuesday and there's a slight risk of seeing some of that push into the Edmonton area Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.


However, we'll get to a high near 10 C Wednesday afternoon and in the mid-teens again Thursday.

Friday's shaping up to be the warmest day of the week with a high in the 18 to 23 degree range.
