FAIRBANKS - A late winter storm could drop several inches of snow, mixed with rain in areas, over the Fortymile region east of Fairbanks tonight.

High winds and heavy wind are expected in the area overnight, with 3 to 5 inches of snow northwest of Tok and 1 to 3 inches southeast of Tok, according to the National Weather Service. Snow is expected to diminish Sunday afternoon.

Heavy snow is also expected to fall overnight in the Alaska Range, over the Tok Cutoff and Richardson Highway. A travel advisory was issued for the Richardson Highway between Delta Junction and Paxson Saturday afternoon. Snow, slush and high winds are making travel difficult and drivers are urged to slow down and use caution. Snowfall is also causing difficulties along the Alaska Highway between Tok and the Canada border.

Fairbanks may see scattered snow showers through Sunday with little accumulation expected. Highs will be in the mid-30s.
