...SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM LIKELY ACROSS PORTIONS OF BRISTOL BAY
AND THE LOWER KUSKOKWIM VALLEY FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY...
A significant winter storm is expected to impact portions of Bristol
Bay and the Lower Kuskokwim Valley Friday through Sunday.
A strong low pressure system will move into the area late Friday
then slowly weaken through Sunday.
Increasing potential for heavy snow in most areas for at least a
short time, along with potential for a mix of rain or freezing
rain near the Western Alaska Range, may impact travel in the
region. Strong gusty winds up to 40 mph are possible in some
areas.
There is still some uncertainty concerning the amount and
location of the heaviest snowfall and potential for rain and
freezing rain. However confidence is increasing that most areas
will see snow Friday evening through Saturday before changing to a
short period of freezing rain and then rain. Western parts of
Bristol Bay should change to rain Friday night and eastern
sections of Bristol Bay will see a change to rain by midday
Saturday. Snow will change to rain by Saturday afternoon or
evening for the Lower Kuskokwim Valley.
