Details:
...Another Round of Winter Weather across much of Southcentral...
A potent cold front will lift from south to north across the area
today. Snow is expected from the Matanuska Valley up through the
northern Susitna Valley and into the Copper River Basin.
Temperatures should climb back into the mid 30s to low 40s which
will somewhat limit accumulations. The heaviest snow will be over
the Northern Parks Highway (near Broad Pass) later this afternoon
and evening. The Glen Highway from Chickaloon through Eureka could
also see some brief periods of moderate snow and blowing snow as
more cold air pours in from the southwest.
The Anchorage area will be right on the edge of this system.
Light snow accumulations look more likely for Eagle River and the
Hillside than West Anchorage late this morning through the
afternoon. However, a slight shift in the track of the storm`s
axis could bring a couple of inches to the entire Anchorage Bowl.
