A snowstorm expected to hit Anchorage, Alaska, Friday night could put this May into the top-five snowiest of all time.
"Rain will change to snow Friday night, piling up 1 to 3 inches of snow for Anchorage," Senior Meteorologist Dave Samuhel said.
"The hillsides surrounding the city can observe up to a half a foot of snow by Saturday," Samuhel added.
Rain began falling Thursday night and will continue into Friday before a surge of Arctic air is sent south across the state, helping to change any rain to snow.
"Snow may persist into Saturday as the storm moves slowly over southern Alaska, potentially bringing an even greater snowfall to Anchorage," Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.
"Either way, this May will place in the top five snowiest of all-time for the city if they get at least 1 inch from this storm," Pydynowski added.
Anchorage has already recorded 0.9 of an inch of snow on May 4, already tying them for the 7th snowiest May. This places them easily within range of breaking into the top five.
The unusually snowy May is in stride with a record-setting cold May for Alaska. Expert Senior Meteorologist recently noted that during the prior winter, Anchorage set a seasonal snowfall record with 134.5 inches. The old record was 132.6 inches during the winter of 1954-55, according to the National Weather Service.
