first_imgOttenweller: “What we are looking at through today is kind of lingering snow, it should taper off a bit this morning, and then rebuild this afternoon into the evening hours. It could between 1-3 inches, is what we are thinking right now, and could lean towards the higher end.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Last updated on December 12th, 2018 at 11:18 amThe wait may finally be over for some Alaskans as snow begins to grace the the Kenai Peninsula with its presence this week. According to Ottenweller the snowfall is expected dissipate on Wednesday morning, but cold air and strong winds are expected to push out of the west causing temperatures to fall. Ottenweller: “It’s a good thing for a lot of folks, this  is very welcome news. It looks like that cold air stays in place, and even gets a little colder as we go through the end of the week. So, whatever we accumulate in the next 24 to 48 hours should stick around.”  Mike Ottenweller with the National Weather Service in Anchorage: “The setup across the area is that we’ve got some cold air working in from across the west, and we’ve got a low pressure center in the Prince William Sound. Those two things make for a good scenario for snow across much of South Central and especially the Kenai Peninsula.”  The areas expected to get snowfall; Kenai, Soldotna, Nikiski, Sterling, Ninilchik, Anchor Point, Homer, Cooper Landing, Whittier, Seward,  Girdwood, and Moose Pass.
