...Snow Expected Today Above 2000 Feet...

Snow is expected today above 2000 feet across the Eastern
Interior, with 1 to 2 inches of accumulation possible above 2000
feet. This could cause some snow to accumulate on higher summits
of the Steese, Elliott, Parks, and Richardson Highways on
Saturday.

In the Alaska Range above 3000 feet, between 4 and 6 inches of
snow is possible through tonight.

A strong cold front will sweep east across the Eastern Interior
today, causing a cold rain in valley locations. Expect
temperatures to fall during the day, along with west winds
gusting to 25 mph. Along with this front, snow levels will drop
down to 2000 feet today. Snow could fall as low as 1500 feet, but
no accumulation is expected below 2000 feet.
