Slippery roads, no airport cancellations

Posted: Wednesday, October 11, 2000

Snow fell on the central peninsula Tuesday, making the day even more exciting for area students who already had the day off from school.

Peninsula schools were closed for in-service days Monday and Tuesday.

Conditions were just right for snowfall. The temperature in Kenai was 32 degrees through the early afternoon. Light snow and mist limited visibility to one mile.

There were no delays or cancellations at the airport. The traffic control tower operator called it, "Just a normal snowy Kenai day."

Several accidents were reported by midday to Alaska State Troopers, who said there had been a couple involving minor injuries.

The roads were only wet during the afternoon, but slippery roads earlier in the day accounted for the accidents that occurred in the morning, according to state troopers.

Snow showers and warmer temperatures are expected for tomorrow, with temperatures rising to the low 40s, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is expected Thursday.
