...Snow returning to Southcentral Alaska...

Snowfall will return to Southcentral Alaska beginning tonight and
continuing into Saturday morning as a weather system moves into
the area. Snow is expected to begin along the Gulf Coast tonight
and then spread inland on Friday.

For the Anchorage area and the Matanuska Valley, the snow is
expected to begin Friday afternoon and continue through the
overnight hours, possibly lingering into Saturday morning.
Three to five inches of snow are currently expected, though
there is potential for higher amounts, especially along the
Talkeetna Mountains including Hatcher Pass.

This snow event will end Saturday as the weather system moves
north of the area. Another system will move into Southcentral
Alaska on Sunday and Monday, bringing more precipitation to the
much of the area.
