Most of the region was hit with around five cm of snow Wednesday morning (Jan.30), making for an interesting commute.
 
According to Alberta 511, as of 4:30 p.m., Highway 15 north of Fort Saskatchewan going past Bruderheim, Lamont and Chipman is partly covered in snow and ice.
 
Highway 16, going from Sherwood Park to Elk Island National Park, and Highway 28, going through Namao, Bon Accord, Gibbons and Redwater, are listed as dry.
 
Out by Gibbons, Highway 28A did have multiple reports of black ice and a collision this morning, but Alberta 511 currently has it listed as dry.
 
Highway 15 going from the Fort to Edmonton is also listed as dry. Despite multiple crashes this morning, the Anthony Henday looks to be in fair condition.
