Much of southern Alberta is under a Snowfall Warning, including the Cochrane region. 

Between 15 to 30 cm of snow is expected to fall in our area over the next 24 hours. 

The heavy snow will taper off by Friday morning. 

"Prepare for quickly changing and deteriorating travel conditions. If visibility is reduced while driving, slow down, watch for tail lights ahead and be prepared to stop." stated Environment and Climate Change Canada. 

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are expected to return to Cochrane next week.
