Storm warning issued for parts of peninsula

Posted: Wednesday, January 31, 2001

A winter storm warning has been issued for parts of the Kenai Peninsula.

The National Weather Service released the warning Tuesday night for areas of western Prince William Sound and the Kenai Mountains including Whittier, Girdwood, Seward, and the Seward Highway from Bird Point to Seward. All areas were expected to remain under a winter storm warning of rain and snow accumulations at lower elevations with a possibility of heavy snow at higher elevations through the morning.

East winds will be gusting to 50 miles per hour in Portage Valley and north to east winds increasing to between 25 and 40 mph in all other areas.

Blowing snow will reduce visibility in the mountains with accumulations of 2 feet or more at higher elevations today.

A warning means a serious threat to life and/or property is occurring or imminent. All travel should be done with extreme caution.
