...Snow in the Mountains/Passes Friday Night-Saturday, Colder
Storms Next Week...

* After a mild start to March, a transition to a more active
  weather pattern will begin this weekend and likely continue for
  much of next week. Anyone with travel plans during this
  timeframe should keep close tabs on the forecast in the days to

* A fast-moving Pacific storm will bring snow to the Sierra late
  Friday evening into Saturday morning. The focus of this storm
  will mainly be in the Sierra from Alpine County northward, with
  a brief period of intense 1-2 inch per hour snowfall rates
  possible. Total snow accumulation will likely be low by Sierra
  standards with 1-2 inches at Lake Tahoe elevation and 4-7 inches
  for the Sierra crest. Hazardous travel over the Sierra passes,
  including Donner, Echo, and Carson passes, along with areas west
  of Susanville is anticipated for early Saturday morning. Snow
  will likely end abruptly after sunrise.

* Only light rain or snow showers are expected for foothill and
  lower valleys across western Nevada Saturday morning with not
  much, if any accumulation likely. Gusty south-southwest winds
  will also be possible areawide with most lower elevations seeing
  25-35 mph gusts, while the Sierra crest could see gusts as high
  as 60-80 mph.

* After a relatively quiet day on Sunday, an active pattern will
  resume on Monday with waves of snow and gusty winds through
  Wednesday and possibly Thursday. While we are not anticipating
  any particularly strong storms, these storms will be on the
  colder side which could bring snow to valley floors. Travel
  disruptions should be expected across the Sierra and possibly at
  times into Western Nevada Monday through Wednesday. The latest
  snow total projections are showing 1-2 feet along the Sierra
  crest, 6-12 inches for mountain communities, and a dusting to
  several inches into the Western Nevada cities. Wind gusts on
  the order of 25 to 40 mph will occur at times.

Alaska Peninsula-

1036 AM AKST Thu Mar 4 2021


The Alaska Volcano Observatory has detected a small explosion and
low level ash emission in webcam and satellite data of Veniaminof
Volcano located north of Perryville. Any ashfall is expected to
be of trace amounts, and in the immediate vicinity within 10
miles of the volcano.

Surface winds are currently out of the southwest, and will
eventually shift to the northwest this afternoon. Potential
ashfall this morning would be to the north or northeast of the
volcano, while any possible ashfall this afternoon would be to the
south or southeast of the volcano.

...Snow and Blowing Snow Expected Across the Western Kenai
Peninsula from Friday Morning through Saturday Morning...

Periods of light snow are expected to develop from west to east
across the Western Kenai Peninsula starting Friday morning. Gusty
northwesterly winds will develop Friday night, especially along
the Sterling Highway from Clam Gulch south. The combination of
vehicle traffic, gusty winds, and blowing snow will result in
localized reductions in visibility in the windier areas of the
Sterling Highway, particularly from Clam Gulch south.

The heaviest snow is expected to develop Friday night across the
Western Kenai Peninsula. However, there remains considerable
uncertainty on where the heaviest snow will develop. The most
likely areas are through Kenai-Soldotna and Sterling. 3 to 6
inches of snow are expected through Saturday morning in these
areas. 2 to 4 inches of snow are expected from Clam Gulch south.

However, if the heaviest snow remains south of Kenai-Soldotna,
then accumulations over 6 inches are possible in the windiest
areas, which would further worsen travel conditions along the
Sterling Highway and the Homer Bluff.
