Snow Totals Downgraded For Latest Storm

By | April 8, 2013

The National Weather Service is downgrading it’s forecasted snow amounts for the latest April storm to hit the Anchorage area. Over the weekend 10 inches of snow fell in East Anchorage and on the Hillside. Highland Road in Eagle River received an impressive 29 inches of fluff. This morning the National Weather Service was predicting another 9-15 inches could fall by Tuesday. But now it looks like the storm totals will be closer to 4 to 8 inches.

Jason Ahsenmacher  is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service:

“We saw much lighter snowfall today than we were anticipating. And even tonight, the main show when we get it moving in tonight, is probably not going to be as impressive as we thought. So really, just a very slight shift in the pattern to the east made all the difference for this event.”

Still, Ahsenmacher says snowfall rates should pick up in Anchorage around 7 pm tonight. The snow will lighten up early tomorrow morning and little to no accumulation is expected during the daylight hours tomorrow (Tuesday).
