THURSDAY MORNING COMMUTERS SHOULD EXPECT A QUICK BURST OF SNOW  
ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA THAT COULD CREATE CHALLENGING DRIVING

THE WEST AND ACROSS THE SUSITNA AND MATANUSKA VALLEYS, WESTERN  
KENAI PENINSULA AND ANCHORAGE AREA AROUND 6 AM THURSDAY MORNING.

EXPECT 1 TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW ALONG LOWLAND AREAS WITH UP TO 3  
INCHES POSSIBLE ALONG THE ANCHORAGE HILLSIDE, THE NORTHERN SUSITNA  
VALLEY AND IN SURROUNDING MOUNTAINS. IN THE ADDITION TO THE  
POTENTIAL FOR SLIPPERY ROADS, COLD TEMPERATURES WILL ALLOW FOR  
SNOW TO EASILY BE BLOWN AROUND BY TRAFFIC LEADING TO SIGNIFICANTLY  
REDUCED DRIVING VISIBILITIES AT TIMES.
