Nov. 12—Another round of heavy snow is being forecast for the Anchorage area starting overnight Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
A winter storm warning is in effect for Anchorage from midnight to noon Monday, with between 6 and 9 inches of snow forecast for the city and up to 12 inches on the Anchorage and Eagle River Hillsides, the weather service said. The forecast called for blowing snow and reduced visibility.
The heaviest snowfall is expected between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday, with rates of between 1 inch and 1 1/2 inches per hour, the weather service said.
The new snowfall follows last week's storm that buried the city with more than 2 1/2 feet of snow and led to continuing difficulties plowing roads and streets.
A snow advisory was in effect to the north, with 5-10 inches forecast for the Matanuska Valley, and 7-10 inches in the Susitna Valley.
A blizzard warning was issued for Whittier during the day Monday.
