Foggy weather and icy road conditions helped send more than 100 vehicles into ditches over the weekend, Anchorage police dispatchers said.
From Friday to Sunday afternoon first responders recorded a total of 105 vehicles in ditches, 36 accidents and 11 injury accidents on Anchorage-area roadways.
A layer of warm air hanging over Anchorage was to blame for rain that became ice and fog, said National Weather Service hydro-meteorological technician Dave Stricklan.
Cooler temperatures are on the way: Fog should dissipate by Monday, with lows between 10-20 degrees forecast that night.
