...More snow on the way for the Central and Eastern Interior... The previously advertised significant cold spell with temperatures 40 to 50 below over the Interior late this weekend into early next week is no longer expected to occur. Temperatures will remain near seasonal normals with lows ranging from 15 to 30 below and highs 10 to 20 below. Another round of snow will begin over the southeastern Interior and eastern Alaska Range Friday morning and then spread north over the Interior Friday. Periods of snow will continue through Saturday afternoon before tapering off Saturday evening. Snowfall accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are forecast south of the Yukon River and from Manley east with the heaviest amounts of 15 to 20 inches over the eastern Alaska Range. Lesser amounts of 1 to 3 inches is forecast north of the Yukon River and west of Manley. Gusty northeast winds up to 40 mph and falling snow will create low visibilities in blowing snow over higher terrain and summits along the Dalton...Steese and Elliott Highways Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. Another weather system is forecast to move over the area late Sunday through Tuesday and will bring more snow to the interior. Exact snow amounts and timing are still uncertain at this time.
