The ground near Ship Creek in downtown Anchorage is void of snow on Thursday. Unlike other cities across the nation digging out for snowstorms, Alaska's largest city is bare of snow. This time of year, Anchorage normally has nearly 17 inches of snowfall. Instead, it's seen less than 4 inches, and that snow fell a month ago and melted in unseasonably warmer weather.

This time of year, Anchorage normally has nearly 17 inches of snowfall.
