Many people on social media are reporting power cutting in and out in their homes, something Enmax says is completely normal when this kind of weather hits.

The electricity company says the power could continue to come and go through the evening as a result of the winter storm. To see an outage map or to report a lasting outage, click here.

Meantime, traffic is snarled in a number of sections across the city as slick streets and reduced visibility take a toll on drivers.

Environment Canada is recommending people postpone all non-essential travel–especially on out-of-town highways–due to the conditions.

If you must travel, keep it locked on 660 NEWS for the latest traffic reports and follow @660NEWSTraffic on Twitter.

Crews at YYC are working feverishly to clear runways and de-ice planes as the storm intensifies.

The airport authority says due to the weather some flights have been delayed or cancelled so if you or someone you know is supposed to fly tonight, you should double check the status of your flight.
