Statement as of 4:30 AM AKST on December 02, 2010
... Blizzard Warning in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 3 am
The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 3 am
akst Friday. The blizzard watch is no longer in effect.
A strong low pressure system and associated front will move
across the Bering Sea today. Temperatures will be below freezing
around the Kuskokwim Delta as the winds and moisture arrive
this afternoon. The combination of falling and blowing snow will reduce
visibility to less than one quarter mile this afternoon and tonight.
Conditions will improve late tonight as the front moves inland.
A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to white-out
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. All travel and
outdoor activity is strongly discouraged.
