Winter storm warning in effect for southeast Alaska

While much of the state continues to see clear and mild weather, the same cannot be said for the Southeast.

An area of low pressure is delivering snow and rain to the area. The National Weather Service in Juneau reported 6 inches has fallen since 7 a.m. on Douglas Island and 10.25 inches of new snow in Hoonah.

The snow will continue overnight and through most of Monday. A winter storm warning is in effect until 1 p.m. Monday for Juneau, Haines, Gustavus, Hoonah, Elfin Cove, Pelican and Angoon. These areas can expect a total of 8 to 15 inches of snow. Visibility will also be poor Sunday night and Monday.

Southcentral stays quiet

Monday will be another mostly sunny day across Southcentral. High temperatures will reach the mid 20’s in Anchorage. Be prepared for gusty winds in Anchorage and strong winds in the Valley. Winds gusts of 25 to 35 mph in Anchorage and 45 to 60 mph in the Valley are likely.

We’ll see increasing clouds mid-week with a chance for light snow showers in the Prince William Sound and Copper River Basin.
