...Moderate Snow Bands Impacting the Western Kenai Peninsula...

Bands of snow have developed over Cook Inlet and will continue to
linger over parts of the extreme western Kenai Peninsula (Sterling
and Kenai Spur Highways) this morning. These bands are very
narrow (only a few miles wide), however they are producing
moderate to heavy snow. If a band stalls out, expect rapid snow
accumulation of several inches of snow. The heaviest band during
the overnight has been located between Anchor Point and Ninilchik.
Another band has been lingering near Nikiski. Due to cold
temperatures, this snow remains very light and powdery. Gusty west
to northwest winds will cause the snow to drift and reduce
visibility, so motorists should use caution.

The winds should become more northerly during the day, shifting
the bands towards Seldovia. Several inches of accumulation will be
possible if bands stall near the town.
