Cochrane residents can expect a cool and snowy day as the wind continues to pick up speed. 

Between two and four cm of snow is expected to fall before the end of the day Tuesday and the wind could gust between 40 to 70 km/h at times.  

Area highways are either partially covered or covered in snow as drivers start their Tuesday morning commutes. 

The good news is, the snow is expected to stop falling by tomorrow and warmer temperatures are forecast for the weekend.
