ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Cordova residents didn’t see much of a break in Monday's winter weather on Tuesday, waking up to blustery wind and falling snow -- with rain right around the corner.
Around town visibility was extremely low, with falling snow and snow blowing off of rooftops. The weather has made it too dangerous for members of the Alaska National Guard to continue shoveling rooftops, so instead they’re working on ground projects like removing snow from fire hydrants and digging people's homes out.
Meteorologists are predicting temperatures to warm up as the day continues, which will turn the wet snow into rain. Cordova could see up to a foot of snow, and if rain falls on top of that there is a chance it will weigh down roofs, and cause some damage.
