Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement issued February 26 at 9:40AM AKST by NWS Anchorage AK

Northerly winds will increase through the day today as a strengthening area of low pressure moves east along the southern Kenai Peninsula coast. Wind gusts of 30 to 45 mph are possible along the Cook Inlet coast and around Kachemak Bay Monday afternoon through late Monday night. Wind gusts may be strong enough to resuspend snow already on the ground, resulting in areas of blowing and drifting snow. Visibilities may be significantly reduced in areas of blowing snow, especially along the Sterling Highway south of Kenai. Motorists are urged to slow down and use caution when traveling.

Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement issued February 26 at 12:44AM AKST by NWS Fairbanks AK

If you thought old-man winter was over because of the recent warm temps, you were wrong. Another arctic blast is upcoming for the Northern Mainland. This is not necessarily unusual, but it will still be anomalous, as low temps plummet back to the -30 F range (the coldest valley locations will fall into the -40 F range). Temperatures fall well below normal Tuesday night, but the bottom doesn't fall out until Wednesday night, with the coldest temps likely occurring Thursday night and Friday night. It will remain quite cold through most of the weekend although temps will slowly be climbing back out of the deep-freeze, slowly. This cold-snap will not reach the same extremes as the last one at the end of January and early February, but it will still be anomalous for this time of year. The one big difference will be daytime highs will be much warmer than a month ago, since we now see quite a bit more solar radiation and daytime warming. Don't put that Interior winter-gear away quite yet!
