...Snow Tonight and Friday above 2000 Feet...

Another strong weather system is expected to move across the
Interior tonight and Friday. This storm is warmer than the one on
Tuesday. Above 2000 feet the precipitation will fall as snow and
bring 2 to 4 inches of accumulation from tonight through Friday.
This will make travel difficult over summits of the Steese and
Elliott Highways late tonight into Friday. This could also make
travel difficult through the Alaska Range tonight and Friday.

In valley locations, such as Fairbanks, precipitation will fall
mainly as rain, although it may mix with snow at times. No snow is
expected to accumulate in valleys. Hillsides above 1000 feet
could see an inch of snow.
