Snow returns on Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Winter is not over yet! Snow will return to Southcentral Alaska Tuesday through Wednesday.

Accumulating snow will begin in Western Prince William Sound and the Kenai Peninsula Tuesday morning. Snow will move into Anchorage and the Matanuska and Susitna Valleys by midday.

Ice and snow? Take it slow.

Plan accordingly. Snow will increase in intensity during the Tuesday afternoon and evening commute. Expect winter driving conditions through Wednesday as snow will fall through the day.

How much snow?

While snowfall intensity may not reach heavy enough amounts for our team to send alerts (watches, warnings or advisories), the duration of snowfall may have impacts to your activities... especially after the recent dry stretch of weather.  It is possible that snow will continue through the end of the week.

In the meantime, our meteorologists are updating their forecasts with the most up-to-date information and will have specific snowfall amounts available later this afternoon.
