A recent study predicts more rain than snow for the rest of the 21st century in Alaska. The study used 10 years of weather forecasts and focused on the areas in Alaska that receive the most snow. 

Southwest Alaska saw the most dramatic results in the report published in the journal Hydrological Processes earlier this month.  It predicted that under the most extreme warming scenarios, southwest Alaska’s precipitation would be three-quarters rain in February.
