JUNEAU — Juneau is seeing its first real snowfall of the season, with several inches expected before the temperatures warm and snow turns to rain.

National Weather Service meteorologist Nikki Becker says the snow is the result of a cold arctic front that hit the city this week. Thursday's high of 34 was 7 degrees below normal for that day.

Becker says 1-3 inches of snow are possible during the day Friday and up to 2 more inches Friday night. She says southeast winds are expected to warm the area, with rain possible this weekend.

She says this is the first time this season that snow has stuck to the ground. Snow mixed with rain was reported at the airport on Oct. 30 and 31st but it didn't last.
