Special Weather Statement


SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT
National Weather Service ANCHORAGE AK

AKZ101-210300-
Anchorage-
Including the cities of Anchorage, Eagle River, Indian,
and Eklutna
837 AM AKST Mon Jan 20 2020

...LIGHT, POWDERY SNOW RETURNING TO ANCHORAGE...

Light, powdery snow could limit visibilities along roadways today.
A band of snow will drift from Cook Inlet over the Anchorage Bowl
this morning. Generally around 1-3" of snow is expected. Due to
the cold temperatures, the snow is expected to be a powdery
consistency. Powdery snow is very prone to becoming resuspended by
fast-moving vehicle traffic. This will locally reduce visibility,
especially along the Glenn and Seward Highways through this
evening. Conditions will improve overnight tonight as snow tapers
off. Drivers are urged to leave plenty of extra space between
vehicles and to use caution.

837 AM AKST Mon Jan 20 2020

...SNOW REDUCING VISIBILITY ALONG AREA HIGHWAYS...

Light to occasionally moderate snow will continue to cause slick
conditions and limit visibility along northern portions of the
Kenai Peninsula through midday. The several inches of powdery snow
that fell overnight into this morning will easily be resuspended
by fast moving vehicles on area highways. This can substantially
reduce visibilities. Conditions should improve this afternoon and
evening when the falling snow ends. Drivers are urged to leave
plenty of extra space between vehicles and to use caution.
