ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Snow showers for Anchorage today amounted to 1.1 inches, upping Anchorage’s seasonal snowfall total to 95.7 inches. Temperatures were close to seasonal averages for highs at 34 degrees (35).

Avalanche conditions are still deemed dangerous above 1,000 feet in Turnagain Pass and the Girdwood area. Experts caution that the snowpack needs at least another day to stabilize after all the new snow and high winds Thursday.

The weather pattern remains fairly active. A large low moving in from Kamchatka crosses the Aleutians on Friday and heads north through the Bering Sea to the west coasts on Saturday. Winter storm watches for blizzard conditions and snowfall of 4 to 9 inches are up even though the storm is days away.

Hot spot: Klawock, 47 degrees. Cold spot: Point Lay, 10 degrees below zero.
