Cold air is setting in across the northern half of the state with most locations falling to the single digits, if not below zero. Further south it's a different story. Temperatures barely dipped low enough this weekend for record snow to fall and stick across Anchorage, but it came on a day with a record high temperature of 45°. 

Now, another storm is headed our way, bringing more warm air and moisture with it. For Southcentral and Southwest Alaska the timing is such that we'll see snow initially, but then as warmer air moves in, we'll see a transition to freezing rain. 

Closer to the storm, Bristol Bay is under an Ice Storm Warning for a similar set-up, only with more moisture. Areas north of Dillingham should expect 4 inches of snow, 0.2-0.4 inches of ice and wind gusts to 35 mph.
