    Aye it's been a freezing fog snizzle combo. It seems to be common here as this is the 3rd time in the 8 weeks I've been in Canada.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen that in the mountains. Maybe it’s an unusual micro climate type thing for the city or its us that has the micro climate as I can only recall fog happening here a few times. Looks good ❄️

    It's gorgeous on the trees and bushes, all of these were clear before the snizzle started:

    It's still snizzling away, just tiny snowflakes.

    Wow that’s impressive. There’s something quite magical when everything is encased in a thick layer of snow and ice.

    It's still snizzling away, we're getting a reasonable dusting-covering out of it with some cool light pillars too:

    That’s quite a prolonged event. The light pillars are cool though. Imagine that in the U.K. it’d probably be an Amber weather warning lol

    Probably right. They’ve gone really cautious and warn about basic winter weather it seems

    The Met-Office and their warning system are notorious. It's an impact matrix they use so it's not all to do with the weather, it takes into account the impact it may have on people and the population density. The bottom line is that it's a stupid system, you can get an Amber warning for 10cms of snow or an Amber warning for 40cms of snow and 10 foot drifts which trap you in your house for 5 days. 80mph gusts over parts of Scotland are a Yellow Warning but 80mph gusts over London would be an Amber or Red.

    Cheers - they have to look at revamping it - I was looking at some of the warnings on the map and that’s a mess too. Time for a change for them. I think I remember when they used to do warnings for each individual county on the map and their own overviews.

    According to the TV weather we have had light flurries with almost no accumulation in Calgary...my eyes tell me differently. Having said that there is almost no new snow most places I've been this morning (over the hill for the school run and then downtown to drop my better half off at work). We have our own wee microclimate here in the far NW of the city, getting on for a couple of inches of diamond dust:

    That really is a localised micro climate @CatchMyDrift- love how the weather can through up quirky events like this.

    It’s lightly snowing in Canmore this morning which is a nice change but with minimal accumulation at the moment

    Meanwhile ‘down south’ in Mammoth lakes on the other hand....it’s well and truly started. This takes lamppost watching to the extreme.

    Not sure what happened but I couldn't type with the video. We have proper light snow on and off here this morning, it looks like Lux Flakes on the ground/surfaces:

    Not a bad dump for snizzly diamond dust:

    Monday/Tuesday is looking interesting for snow for southern Alberta. Not sure how much but models showing something brewing.

    In other news some pictures from social media of mammoth lakes. It’s finally stopped. The digging out begins...
