Additional Info & Media

Advisories will begin once HP receives significant snow accumulation.

Snow is in the forecast for this weekend, so while you sit with your family and friends this Thanksgiving, make sure to raise your glass and make a toast to the Snow Gods.

This weekend, look for the classic southwest flow pattern which typically brings heavier snowfall to HP.  This model shows strong southwest flow, digging and drawing ocean moisture up the cook inlet en route for orographically enhanced snowfall at HP.

A burst of snow appears in the model runs for Friday, but Saturday afternoon and evening look like the bigger punch. Of course weather forecasts can be fickle, but it’s the best we got for now!

Happy Holidays!
