Tonight and Tuesday’s weather: Messy commute ahead
More light snowfall is expected in Southcentral overnight and on Tuesday. Another disturbance will move through the area on Monday night and on Tuesday.
Overnight there will be some light snow falling on top of the trace to few inches of snow that fell Sunday night and Monday morning that will make for another slippery morning commute for most areas. In addition, well-below-freezing temperatures overnight will freeze any slush and puddles that are out there.
In Anchorage, expect the heaviest snow to fall on the Hillside areas, with lesser amounts in the Anchorage Bowl. Amounts will range from less than one inch in the Bowl and up to two inches on Hillside overnight, with another inch possible during the day on Tuesday.
The Matanuska Valley will be blocked by the mountains somewhat and will get a dusting of less than an inch of accumulation in total. On the western Kenai Peninsula, up to two inches will fall overnight with another inch in the morning. And the east side of the peninsula, we will see a mix of snow and rain with up to three inches accumulating overnight and another inch in the morning.
Temperatures will rise to the mid-30s Tuesday in Anchorage, so some light rain could fall later in the day that will melt some of the snow it falls on. That melted material will start to refreeze by the evening on Tuesday and that will cause roads and other surfaces to get very slick again during the commute on Tuesday evening. Drive, and walk, carefully out there.
