"It's going to be nasty sloppy tomorrow," predicted Rich Courtney of the National Weather Service from his office at Kodiak State Airport.
The second heavy snowfall to hit Kodiak in four days was forecast to switch to rain Tuesday morning, adding a slushy mix to almost a foot of snow dropped by a weekend storm.
The Kodiak Police Department issued an online advisory cautioning drivers, and the city's public works department worked all day Monday to scrape snow from area roads as soon as it fell.
Crews caught a few hours of sleep and were expected back at work well before sunrise this morning.
The weather service predicts treacherous conditions will continue through the week, as rain is expected intermittently through Wednesday, when colder weather returns. The rain will turn back into snow before tapering off by the weekend, when temperatures are predicted to drop into the teens.
