Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement issued March 4 at 2:51PM AKST by NWS Juneau AK

Low pressure tracking into the gulf Tuesday will swing a front towards the panhandle. As the front moves over SE AK, precip is likely for much of the panhandle beginning Tuesday night and lasting through Wednesday. The last few days have been clear and cold so the area is set up for snow at the start. At this time, because the expected movement of the front is from west to east, the amounts of snow does not look enough for a significant winter storm. Confidence is increasing on 24 hour amounts estimated between 4 - 8 across the panhandle; however, amounts are trending towards the lower end of the spread. With southerly winds picking up in lieu of the heaviest snowfall, temperature profiles look to limit substantial (above 6 inches) snowfall for areas that are not the northern panhandle. This is supported in the NBM probabilities of 6 inches or greater trending down with every model run. Latest guidance is suggesting most locations have roughly a 30% chance of achieving 6 or more inches in a 24 hour period. For snow type, areas along the coast and southern panhandle look to have dry, fluffy snow to start, but as heavier rates move in, snow will quickly become heavy and wet. For areas in the northern panhandle, expect snow to remain light, dry, and possibly accumulate quickly. Elsewhere, snow looks to begin as light and dry and slowly become increasingly wet.
