Just as happened yesterday morning, a relatively narrow band of moderate to heavy snow is streaming out of the Gulf into Southcentral today. Yesterday, this snow band moved over Turnagain Arm and directly into Anchorage. This morning, it has been moving over Seward, Kenai and Soldotna. Up to 6 inches will fall within this snow activity. Rain may mix with snow this afternoon in the eastern Kenai.
Scattered showers are possible this evening and overnight in Anchorage and the Valley with light accumulations.
Partly cloudy skies and 30s will make for a lovely late winter day in Cordova and Valdez. Enjoy it while it lasts because snow chances increase tonight and through the weekend.
Periods of rain with low 40s for highs are in store for the Panhandle. Dry and cold weather with partly to mostly cloudy skies is back across the west and Interior. The Arctic Slope will have very cold temperatures with patchy fog and ice fog.
The upper trough that has dipped into Southwest AK will shift to the east tomorrow. Weak surface disturbances will consolidate into one, as well. Snow becomes a minimal threat in Anchorage Saturday. Showers are still likely to out east along coastal regions.
Snow chances increase as the upper trough regenerates over SW AK Sunday, enhancing the snow potential Sunday and next week for Southcentral.
