A blizzard warning was issued Tuesday by the National Weather Service for the Seward Highway, Seward, Girdwood and Moose Pass. The warning is in effect from Tuesday night through 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
The warning says that blizzard conditions will reduce visibility to a quarter mile or less, with snow blowing in gusts as high as 50 miles per hour. Snow accumulation is predicted to be from 7 to 20 inches.
Areas expected to get the worst of the storm are the Seward Highway corridor from Girdwood south to Turnagain pass and Portage Glacier Road east to Whittier, the warning reads.
The service warns of slippery road conditions that will impact commutes.
Wednesday afternoon, some rain may mix with the snow in areas that are at sea level.
“If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you,” the message says. “If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.”
