ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Weak low pressure continues to spin over the northern Gulf of Alaska. It will move to the southeast during the day, taking the threat of snow with it.
6 to 12 inches fell in Anchorage from this storm. A few locales in Southcentral saw nearly a foot, but, in general, snow totals stayed a little lower than anticipated. Fine, light snow is lingering over Southcentral this morning, with clouds clearing late today or tonight.
Snow showers will hang in in the Panhandle. 1 to 3 inches can be expected through tonight.
Dry and bitterly cold air is slowly evading the state from west to east, as a dominant high pressure ridge over the Bering Sea and north Pacific marches slowly eastward. Cold air beneath and at the leading edge of the high has seeped into Interior Valleys this morning, where temperatures range from 30 to 55 below. Winds to 35 mph along the Slope will result in blizzard conditions due to blowing snow at times and bitter wind chills.
