ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Snowfall has not been widespread over the Cook Inlet Region, but where it has fallen, it has been very persistent. We have had oer 24 hours of continuous snowfall in Anchorage.
The culprits are a weak upper level trough hanging over the state and a weak surface low in the northern Gulf. The low was nearly indiscernible yesterday morning, thus snow totals were not expected to be anywhere near what they have been. But model runs are now picking it out better and indicating it could linger for another day. This means more snow for Anchorage. Most other areas in the region are seeing little to no snow at all. In fact, it was clear in Homer this morning and dry along the Susitna and in Kenai/Soldotna.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 10 pm for Anchorage, with an additional 3 to 8 inches through tonight. Saturday will be drier and sunnier by afternoon.
