Snow showers are likely across Southcentral Thursday afternoon. A cold front is already spreading clouds across the region with snow soon to follow.

The storm is moving fast and doesn't have much moisture with it, so accumulations will be light.

The Anchorage Bowl should expect 0.5 to 2 inches with similar amounts likely in Wasilla and Palmer. The northern Kenai Peninsula, and northern Susitna Valley will see slightly less.  

Temperatures will warm above freezing for Homer and Seward where snow/rain mixed showers are likely in the late afternoon/early evening.

This storm will push east of Prince William Sound late Thursday evening and dry, mostly clear weather will return to Southcentral.


This same storm system will bring the first significant snow event of the season to the Southeast Friday. 

A winter weather advisory is in effect from midnight to noon Friday from Cape Fairweather to Cape Suckling, where 3 to 5 inches of snow is likely overnight into Friday morning near Yakutat.  

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the Juneau Borough, Glacier Bay, Eastern Chichagof Island, Northern Admiralty Island and Salisbury Sound
to Cape Fairweather, where 3 to 6 inches of snow can be expected Friday.
