...RECENT SNOWFALL IS CAUSING VERY LOW VISIBILITY WHILE DRIVING...

The snowfall from yesterday afternoon through this afternoon
continues to cause significantly reduced visibilities in the
Anchorage bowl and along the Seward highway all the way to, and
including, Seward. While snowfall has tapered off or stopped
completely, it is the type of snow that is easily suspended in
the air by driving vehicles making it difficult to see while
driving.
These conditions are expected to persist through the evening and
slowly improve as the snow gets packed down and roads are cleared
of snow.

Please exercise extra caution when driving today and leave
plenty of time to arrive at your destination.
