Special Statement
Issued: 9:50 PM AKST Jan. 15, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Snow then periods of cold temperatures this week...

A low pressure system moving into the interior from the southeast
will arrive overnight tonight. Snowfall totals of 4 to 7 inches
are expected south of a line from Fort Yukon to Nenana by late
Monday night... with around 1 to 3 inches expected along and north
of this line. Snowfall totals will be higher in the eastern
Alaska Range with around one foot of snow falling in the
mountains east of the Tok cutoff.

Following the exit of the snow tomorrow night... cloud cover is
expected to decrease from south to north into Tuesday... and will
remain variable for the interior throughout the upcoming week.
For areas that experience clearing for around 12 consecutive hours
or more... temperatures are expected to drop as low as 35 to 45
below for interior valleys... including in and around Fairbanks. A
large amount of uncertainty remains on the exact timing of the
coldest periods... but confidence is high that most valley
locations will experience one or more periods of very cold
temperatures this week. Please keep up to date on the latest
forecasts... as several changes in the temperature and cloud
forecasts are expected throughout the upcoming work week.
Temperatures will gradually moderate next weekend.
