FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Tanana Valley’s first full snowfall of the season has covered Fairbanks in a four to nine inch blanket of snow.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1FpR1jJ ) that the Friday snow and slush slowed traffic. Police say there were several minor crashes, including one that knocked over a light pole.

National Weather Service forecasters say most areas in town received around 5 inches of snow, while areas further off had as much as 9 inches by 5 p.m. Friday.

NWS forecaster Don Aycock says temperatures should warm up enough Saturday to turn scattered snow showers into rain. He expects the temperature to reach up the mid-50s by Monday.
