Weather experts believe the Edmonton area will see at least 10 centimetres of snow by the end of Friday, but the snowfall warning was lifted by 5:30 Friday afternoon.
The snowfall began early Friday morning and Environment Canada issued a snowfall warning around 10:30am Friday warning some areas in and around the city could see up to 15 centimetres of snow and people in the area should adjust their driving to the conditions.
