LOWER KUSKOKWIM VALLEY

Areas Affected:
Western Kenai Peninsula
Effective: Fri, 3/5 4:46am Updated: Fri, 3/5 5:00am Urgency: Expected
Expires: Fri, 3/5 6:00pm Severity: Minor Certainty: Observed

 
Details:
...Snow Expected Across the Western Kenai Peninsula through
Saturday Morning...
A band of snow has developed over the Sterling and Soldotna area
this morning, causing light to occasionally moderate snow in the
core of the band. The band is expected to stay nearly stationary,
or could slowly shift west towards Kenai and the Inlet through
this morning. As upper level support approaches this evening, more
widespread, and slightly heavier intensity light snow will
overspread much of the western Kenai Peninsula. Snowfall intensity
will gradually diminish from midnight tonight onward, but may
take until mid-morning Saturday to fully dissipate.
Breezy northwesterly winds are still possible along Cook Inlet,
namely from Clam Gulch south, through Saturday morning. However
the winds are no longer expected to be strong enough to notably
worsen visibility, except in very localized windier locations.
Storm total accumulations of 2 to 5 inches are expected through
Saturday morning. The higher amounts are expected where the snow
persists longest, so most areas can expect closer to the 2 inch
amount.
Due to small, often difficult-to-forecast changes in the band
location and intensity, updates to the forecast are still possible
through tonight. Please stay tuned to the forecast for updates.
