Special Weather Statement

Special Weather Statement issued March 3 at 3:12PM 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 and lasting into 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 aren't looking like a real big snow storm. That being said, beginning late Tuesday evening into Thursday morning, any 12-hour period could produce upwards of 2 to 5 inches of snow around the panhandle. Because of this, 24 hour amounts could reach upwards of 6 to 10 inches. Also, using the NBM 24-hour probability snowfall amounts, there are isolated spots of 10 to 15% chance of seeing 24-hour amounts greater than 12 inches. If confidence increases in those greater amounts, Winter Storm Watches might be needed.
