The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the Kuskokwim Delta coast. The warning is in effect from 4 a.m. on Feb. 11 to 6 a.m. on Feb. 12.
The weather service forecasts blizzard conditions with 2 to 5 inches of snowfall, and wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour. Blowing snow could reduce visibility to a quarter mile or less along the coast, and to a half mile further inland.
Conditions are expected to be most severe during the day on Feb. 11. This warning increases the severity of the winter weather advisory issued earlier this week.
