...HEAVY WET SNOW AND GUSTY SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS TO MAKE FOR TREACHEROUS TRAVEL ALONG THE RICHARDSON HIGHWAY SOUTH OF THE EDGERTON HIGHWAY ON MONDAY INTO MONDAY NIGHT...

                    Weather Watch 

A major winter storm is expected to impact the area on Monday along the Richardson Highway from the Edgerton Highway south through Thompson Pass. 

The Glenn Highway, west of Glennallen, has been added to this warning. It has also added that snowfall rates may be as high as one inch an hour during the worst of the storm.

Snowfall rates will intensify Monday morning, becoming heavy by Monday afternoon. The heavy snow will persist through Monday evening, then gradually diminish late Monday night into Tuesday morning. 

The storm will also bring warmer air into the area on gusty southeasterly winds. Thus, the snow is expected to be a heavy, wet consistency, which should help to keep visibility a bit higher. However, in localized areas with higher winds, whiteout conditions are possible. 

Those traveling along the Richardson Highway are urged to exercise caution and expect hazardous travel conditions.
