...MULTIPLE STORMS SET TO IMPACT HOLIDAY TRAVEL...
A series of winter storms are expected to impact Southcentral
through the weekend. The first frontal system will arrive
Wednesday morning on the Kenai Peninsula and push north into the
Anchorage Bowl and Mat-Su Valleys by Wednesday afternoon. Gusty
winds are expected through the Turnagain Arm and Knik Arm on
Wednesday. These winds will also increase afternoon high
temperatures into the mid-to-upper 30s which may result in some
snowmelt courtesy of Chinook Winds.
Precipitation along the front is expected to be rain for the
lower elevations of the Kenai Peninsula with heavy, wet snow above
1000`. Precipitation should begin to fall in the Anchorage Bowl
and Mat-Su Valleys Wednesday afternoon where warm temperatures
could result in rain or a rain/snow mix before transitioning to
snow in the evening. Lingering precipitation Wednesday night is
expected to be all snow and fall primarily over Anchorage and the
Mat-Su Valleys.
Another storm system is expected to reach Southcentral Thursday
night. This system is much colder than its predecessor with snow
likely. Snow will begin over the Kenai Peninsula late Thursday
night and extend north throughout the day on Friday.
Variation in temperature, wind, and precipitation
type and accumulation over high terrain may result in dangerous
avalanche conditions. For those with back country interests, be
sure to check out the latest avalanche forecasts at:
cnfaic.org and hpavalanche.org for further details.
