The spring storm that blanketed Anchorage with heavy snow Friday is creating trouble all around town.
Friday evening, the National Weather Service upgraded the situation from an advisory to a heavy snow warning. People should travel only in an emergency, the weather service said.
The deadline for removing studded tires was April 30 -- Wednesday. But state Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan issued an emergency order Friday extending the deadline two weeks for those affected. The new deadline for those in the storm area is May 15.
Around 10 inches of snow fell during the day and another 8 to 15 inches is expected before the storm ends. Snowfall is predicted to continue all night and into Saturday.

Blizzard warning in Minnesota tonight and moving across to Michigans U.P. Here in Northwest Lower Peninsula, they say
snow possible tomorrow night. Temperatures here tonight in upper 50’s. Going down to the mid 20’s over the next couple of nights. Predicting devastation to Cherry crop and other fruit trees.
The snow is coming down fast and furious here in eastern Minnesota.
Thanks Algore for global warming you #$%&* and all the idiots that buy his slop.
I’m in Wasilla, about 45 miles from Anchorage. It’s been coming down nonstop since early morning. We have at least ten inches of really heavy wet stuff and no let up expected till morning. I took my studded tires off last week.
What is with studded tires? Why not use chains?
I have shoveled and shoveled , It was 60 plus degrees yesterday all the snow was almost gone from the front yard , now it’s about six feet high , LOL , about 3 feet so far and still coming down ... WOW !!!!
