Snow returns to the forecast for southcentral Alaska beginning Tuesday evening, and will continue through the Wednesday morning commute. Winter weather advisories have been issued for Anchorage, the Valley, and the western Kenai Peninsula where snowfall totals are expected to be the highest.

Snow will begin moving into the southern and western Kenai Peninsula by the evening commute on Tuesday, and will push into Anchorage and the Matanuska and Susitna Valleys sometime after 9 p.m. The snow could be heavy at times, and may lead to slippery roads and reduced visibility during the Wednesday morning commute. The snow will come to an end by early Wednesday afternoon in Anchorage and on the Kenai, but will linger in Prince William Sound through Wednesday.

Anchorage has seen above-normal snowfall so far this February, with 17.4 inches as of Monday. The season total stands at 69.9 inches — about a foot above normal. This time last year, Anchorage had received 25.8 inches.
