ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Snow has been falling all night and this morning in the Homer area where one to two feet can be expected locally, with drifting snow in 20 to 30 mph wind gusts. Snow will lighten up tonight and taper off tomorrow.
Light to moderate snow is expected for the rest of the Inlet region. Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are likely. Coldest temperatures in Southcentral will be along the upper Susitna, toward Talkeetna. Snow showers in PWS will continue with 2 to 8 inches possible. Snow showers and several inches are in store for the SE Panhandle, as well.
The broad upper trough that sitting over Alaska for the last week is going nowhere fast! Cold air is found in the northerly flow on the west side of the trough. Warmer air and snow is found in the southerly flow within the trough over Southcentral and SE Alaska, as a series of weak disturbances swing out of the Gulf into PWS. Temperatures will range from 10 below to a bitter 45 below in some of the Interior valleys. Highs in SE will reach the 20s and 30s with teens and 20s in PWS.
