Snow & Rain Continue to Pound Southern Alaska
Warm, tropical air is being drawn into the state along a strong upper level jet. This is a classic "Pineapple Express", with a strong ridge over the eastern Pacific and western Lower 48 forcing this rich moisture to the north into Alaska. Snow and rain have been heavy at times along the southern coastline and will continue today.
