Snow showers continue across Southcentral
Snow is spreading across Southcentral Alaska Tuesday morning, causing poor visibility and some slick roads for the morning commute.
The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities is reporting difficult driving conditions between Kenai and Soldotna, where 3 to 5 inches of snow covers the roads. DOT reported up to 18 inches near Anchor Point, where snow started falling Monday night.
Light snow showers will continue across most of Southcentral through Tuesday afternoon, tapering off from south to north. Light isolated snow showers are possible through early Wednesday near Anchorage where 2-4 inches is expected. Much higher snowfall totals were reported in the Kenai and Chugach Mountains with 13-16" by 11 a.m.
This storm system is also bringing a warmer air mass with it. Temperatures climbed 20 to 30 degrees for most of Southcentral between Monday and Tuesday mornings.
High temperatures will stay in the 20s through the end of the week with lows in the teens. We'll see even warmer temperatures this weekend with additional chances for snow.
