Drivers can expect wet and slippery conditions on all roads around Drumheller and area.
Proceed with caution, as visibility will be reduced by flurries, and hard rain fall.
No troubles getting out of the valley this morning. 511 Alberta rates most highways in the area in good condition with bare and dry surfaces.
Roads to the west of us, in the Calgary area, are in worse shape, and highways both north and south of Calgary are yellow flagged by the AMA with partial snow cover and slippery sections.
The Trans-Canada, as far east as Bassano has a bit of snow cover, with snow and ice on the shoulder. Caution is advised.

Take care if you have to hit the highway today. 511 Alberta says Highway #9 west is partially ice covered all the way to Calgary, so caution is advised.
Other roads considered only fair by the AMA include Highway #21 south of the #9, and Highway #9 east of Youngstown, all the way to the Saskatchewan border.
Rob from highway maintenance contractor, Carillion, called Drum-FM this morning to say the highway from Delia east to Hanna is in great shape, nice and clear, with no icy patches. However, one should be careful, just in case.
