...Snow returning to the Southern Mainland through Thursday...

After a long period of sunny and dry conditions throughout much
of the Southern Mainland, snow is expected to return to the area
beginning this evening. The highest confidence and most
significant snowfall is expected over Western Prince William
Sound, including areas near sea level such as Whittier, Portage,
and Seward that will remain as snow throughout the event. Snowfall accumulations will be highest from Whittier to Turnagain Pass where up to a foot of snow is expected, with over 20 inches possible in the Portage Valley. This event is expected to persist into Thursday morning. Confidence in accumulating snowfall over the Western Kenai Peninsula and Anchorage Bowl is however much less from this event due to the recent very dry weather pattern. At this point it doesn`t appear that these areas will see significant accumulations, however the best chance for snow is expected late Wednesday afternoon and evening, potentially impacting the afternoon commute. Snowfall is then expected to begin to diminish throughout the area Thursday morning into the afternoon. For the latest forecast for your location, please visit weather.gov/anchorage.
