I searched all over online and the forum, no luck. Can someone tell me what time frame to start to expect the cold/winter and snow to start? I am moving up next week and I am really looking forward to the winter

On average the first snows in Anchorage are in October. I know, there are years when this doesn't happen, but mid-October would be typical. When I moved to Anchorage, we had a foot on October 12, and being from the lower 48 I assumed it would just melt and come back at some later date. I was wrong. There was snow on the ground from that date until April!

I know you guys are enjoying the weather now, I will too. I am really looking to forward to seeing the sights when the ground is bare first. I grew up in PA and lived in MN so I know winter, BUT I will never say I know what to expect there. I do know the roads will be different. Funny, when I lived in FL everyone I knew always went to AK, I think I was the only who hadn't been yet. Right now I am in OK and I noticed the last few days it was warmer in Anchorage than it has been here!

It's still snowing here in the Brooks Range, and Atigun Pass was closed briefly today due to whiteout conditions.
