Snow Is On Its Way
But how much can we expect?
Original article posted jan. 31, 2011
The next couple of days are going to be very active in south central as two systems will make their way onshore. The first one is currently moving into south central and we will see widespread snow and rain overnight and throughout the day tomorrow.
The bulk of the rain will be found in coastal areas of the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound while the rest of the region will experience primarily snow. Another system looks to move in on Wednesday and much the same scenario will prevail.
Southeast Alaska will also be affected by these systems, but they will only be dealing with wet weather and windy conditions. The weather will really quiet down by the weekend.
