Alberta has another system of relaying weather information. We start with weather radio broadcasts. These frequencies fall into a band known as VHF (very high frequency) and you will need special radio equipment to hear them. Or you can use the phone numbers and dial the local number to listen to recorded weather information for each place in English. How to find weather information for each of these places on the Alberta map.
Also, the Emergency Public Warning Systems exist to send out warnings regarding weather and other hazards. Things such as floods, fires, toxic spills, contamination or terrorism.

Ever heard of an Alberta Clipper?
This winter storm, although it originates somewhere on the Alberta map, quickly moves towards the east or southeast and may deposit moderate to great amounts of snow as far away as the Eastern Seaboard. Usually, one of these storms starts off as a fresh descendant of an aging Pacific storm after it crosses the BC mountains. A distinguishing characteristic of this kind of system is its speed across and out of the Alberta map, its wind speeds and sudden temperature fall-rates. It often scoots out of Alberta before it has dropped any precipitation.
