Much of Southcentral Alaska received an overnight dusting of snow overnight Wednesday, with Anchorage police reporting a few crashes early Thursday.
Between midnight and 7:45 a.m. Thursday, police dispatchers received reports of three non-injury vehicle accidents and nine vehicles in distress. Some of those were on the Glenn Highway near Eagle River.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for Anchorage and the Mat-Su through 3 p.m. Thursday for moderate to heavy snowfall.
Snow started falling around 3 a.m. and will continue into this afternoon. Anchorage will likely see 3 to 7 inches of snow today with the highest amounts on the Anchorage Hillside.
Most of the Mat-Su will see 5 to 8 inches of snow, with up to 10 inches in isolated areas.
The heaviest snowfall will be during the morning commute, tapering off throughout the day. We'll see clear skies tonight with temperatures falling to the upper teens.
