Anchorage, the Kenai Peninsula and parts of the Matanuska Valley can expect snow through much of the day on Monday.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in place until 6 p.m. Monday for Anchorage and the western Kenai Peninsula for snow. Some areas could see four to eight inches of snow with this system.

Winter Weather Advisories are also in place across the Central Interior until 6 a.m. Tuesday for heavy snow and anticipated difficult traveling conditions.

Cold air is moving into the state starting Tuesday. Lows in the Interior and across the West Coast will drop below zero with the coldest temperatures near Circle and Fort Yukon.

Those areas are expecting lows to drop to near 30 degrees below zero for several nights. Teens below zero are expected across the Interior.

Southcentral will see cooler temperatures as well with overnight temperatures in the low single digits Wednesday and Thursday.

The cold doesn’t last long around Southcentral. Another storm system moves into Southwest Alaska starting Friday and will drag some warm air with it.
