...Freezing Rain over the West Coast and Western Interior of
Alaska through Tonight...

Areas of rain, freezing rain, and snow are occuring across most of
the Western Interior and West Coast of Alaska this morning.
Temperatures have risen into the 30s over most of this area, but
the rain will freeze on the still cold ground in many areas. Less
than one tenth of an inch of ice is expected along the West Coast,
but areas in the Western Interior could see up to one quarter inch
of ice accumulation.

Colder air moving in late tonight should cause the precipitation
to change to all snow late tonight or Thursday.
