Mother nature has finally decided it’s winter, so for those with travel plans starting on Wednesday for the Thanksgiving holiday you may want to check the forecast before you hit the road.
The National Weather Service out of Anchorage has issued an advisory for the potential for ‘heavy snow’ for some parts of the Kenai Peninsula starting on Wednesday.
Eddie Zingone with the NWS out of Anchorage: “Snow is expected to develop on Wednesday morning over the eastern Kenai Peninsula and become heavier by afternoon.”
Easterly winds through Turnagain Arm are also expected to increase on Wednesday and bring the potential for periods of reduced visibility along the highway due to blowing snow.
Zingone: “Warmer air moving into the region will start to turn the snow to rain in Seward and Turnagain Arm Wednesday night and continue as rain into Thursday in those locations.”
Snow is possible beginning late Tuesday night and lasting through Wednesday. Be sure to check your local forecast at weather.gov/Anchorage for updates.
