ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The first measurable snow of the season has fallen in Alaska’s largest city.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports (https://is.gd/r3xFhM) six-tenths of an inch fell on Sunday at the National Weather Service’s Sand Lake office.

And that was just the start. The agency says in a statement that another 1.5 inches fell there after midnight.

Snow depths from the first snowfall varied widely over the municipality.

Eagle River had three-tenths of an inch of snow, but one part of the Hillside south of O’Malley Road had 7 inches. There was also a measurement of 8 inches of snow along Turnagain Pass early Monday morning.
