We are now onto the sixth day in a row of sunshine in Anchorage. A few scrappy clouds are expected today and clouds will increase by tomorrow evening and remain into next week, so if you haven't been able to enjoy the sun earlier in the week, today is your day.
Mostly cloudy skies and scattered to isolated rain showers persist over the SE Panhandle thanks to weak flow wrapping in around a British Columbia low.
Around the southern periphery of an Arctic coast high pressure ridge, clouds and isolated showers have increased this morning in and around Fairbanks. Much of the central and eastern Interior could in is for less sunshine than as of late and a shower or two of rain or snow.
The West looks good, but chilly along the coast from Bethel to Nome. The Slope will be cold once again with some sun and highs in the single digits to low teens.
Clouds are increase ahead of a low in the north Pacific. This low will embed within a strengthening upper trough into the weekend as it moves north toward Kodiak Island, and rain showers will become more widespread along the state's southern coastline. Heavy showers are not expected but soggier days will bring a stark end to this week's sunshine.
Expect showers in Anchorage and all of the Inlet region beginning Sundy afternoon through Monday.
Temps will remain mild today and tomorrow with upper 40s before slightly cool low to mid 40s settle in for Sunday and Monday.
