Freezing rain is expected to hit the Western Kenai Peninsula from Sterling to Ninilchik through the morning of Thanksgiving Day, a Wednesday winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service says.
The advisory says that periods of light freezing rain are expected from 4 p.m. Wednesday through 11 a.m. on Thursday, accumulating “a light glaze” of ice.
Roads, bridges and sidewalks will possibly become “very slippery,” according to the advisory.
Included in the advisory are Kenai, Soldotna, Homer and Cooper Landing, but the area with the “best chance” of freezing rain is along the Sterling Highway from Sterling to north of Anchor Point, it reads.
More precipitation, both rain and snow are likely in the service’s forecasts for Kenai, Soldotna and Homer through this weekend.
