Starting New Year`s Day, temperatures will begin a noticeable fall
across Southeast Alaska and change rain showers over to snow
showers region-wide from Wednesday afternoon into the evening.
Temperatures New Year`s Eve when we celebrate 2020 are forecast
to be in the upper 30s to the middle 40s, and around 40 degrees by
Wednesday morning. But by late New Year`s Day afternoon,
temperatures will have cooled to the low to mid 30s with a few
locations falling to the freezing point.

Additionally, much of Southeast Alaska looks to receive light
snowfall accumulations. Wednesday could result in some light
dustings. Wednesday night we expect a trace to 2 inches of
accumulation with up to an additional inch for Thursday.

There is a possibility for a much more significant snowfall event
Friday into Saturday for portions of the southern Panhandle from
Petersburg and Wrangell southward, including Ketchikan and Prince
of Wales Island. However, consensus for the storm is still poor
and it could miss the Panhandle altogether for the BC Coast.
