The National Weather Service has canceled its freezing rain advisory.


A weather system moving through Southcentral Alaska is expected to drop snow and freezing rain across much of the region on Wednesday.

In Anchorage, a freezing rain advisory is in effect from noon to 10 p.m., with warmer air moving into the area this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. The area will see isolated areas of freezing rain into the evening, the weather service said.

"Precipitation will then become steadier and more widespread by late this afternoon," the weather service said, "but will change back to all snow."

In the Susitna Valley, a winter weather advisory is in effect, with between 8 and 16 inches of snow possible in the Willow and Talkeetna areas.

Snow and freezing rain is also forecast for the Kenai Peninsula, with between 4 and 9 inches of snow along Cook Inlet, less snow elsewhere, and sleet and freezing rain across much of the region.
