After a stint of cooler temperatures and clear skies in Juneau, the National Weather Service in Juneau released a winter weather advisory for the area going into effect early Wednesday morning and running through Thursday morning.
Brian Bezenek, lead meteorologist at NWS Juneau, said the forecast predicts roughly 2-5 inches of snow to fall here in Juneau beginning Wednesday morning, followed by a switch to heavy rain in the evening and warming temperatures. He cautioned that road conditions could become slick.
“The snowfall will accumulate on the road and possibly create travel hazards Wednesday morning,” he said. “With heavy rain on top of the snowpack, the roads could be slick.”
He said residents can also likely expect breezy conditions Wednesday night and early morning, with the strongest winds arriving Thursday morning and reaching between 20 and 30 mph.
