Looking outside you'll find little evidence that the next storm is just around the corner, but by Wednesday afternoon we'll once again see snow accumulating across Southcentral. 

Wednesday will start out dry and chilly with only partly cloudy skies in Anchorage but by mid-morning clouds will increase from the south as a storm system moves into to the area. Snow showers will begin before the evening commute Wednesday and will continue through the morning commute Thursday. 

The National Weather Service has already issued winter weather advisories for most of the region:

Kenai Peninsula

The Kenai Peninsula will be the first to see snow Wednesday. It'll begin falling near Kenai and Soldotna by lunchtime. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Western Kenai Peninsula for locations north of Happy Valley from noon Wednesday until noon Thursday. This area should expect 6-10" of snow, with up to a foot north of the Sterling Highway. 

The Eastern Kenai Peninsula is not under an advisory but will see 3-9", with the heaviest amounts near Whittier. 

Anchorage, Palmer, and Wasilla

Snow will move into Anchorage in the late afternoon. Anchorage and the Matanuska Valley are under Winter Weather Advisories from 3 p.m. Wednesday until 3 p.m. Thursday. 3-6" of snow is likely for Anchorage, Palmer, and Wasilla with up to 8" in isolated areas.  


The Susitna Valley is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 3 p.m. Wednesday until 9 a.m. Thursday where 4-8" of snow is expected south of Talkeetna. 


The Copper River Basin and Prince William Sound won't see significant snow until later into the evening. The Copper River Basin from Glennallen south is under a Winter Weather Advisory from 6 p.m. Wednesday to 3 p.m Thursday for 4-8" of snow. 
This storm will clear the area by Thursday evening and by Friday we'll once again be under mostly clear skies with a dry weather pattern holding through the weekend.
