WHAT IS AN ‘ALBERTA CLIPPER’? TORONTO IS ABOUT TO FIND OUT

An ALBERTA CLIPPER is a fast-moving winter storm originating in the lee of the Canadian Rockies. It brings snow, high winds and cold temperatures typically to the Northeastern United States, the Upper Midwest, the Great Lakes and the central provinces of Canada.

These storms are named after 19th century sailing ships known as “clippers” because of their speed. Clippers are usually dispatched from ALBERTA.
