...Holiday Weekend Sees More Snow over South-Central Alaska...

Another low pressure system during the Holiday Weekend brought
more snow to South-Central Alaska through Monday Afternoon.
Heavier snowfall amounts fell over eastern Anchorage through Eagle
River up to the Matanuska and Susitna Valleys with snow continuing
to fall further north and east. Gusty winds in some locations
reduced visibilities in snow and blowing snow.

The snow is expected to taper off in most areas during this
evening with storm totals between four and eight inches expected.
Colder temperatures return to the area over the next few days
which should help keep the snow in place.
