The weekend brought us hints of break-up in Anchorage, but don't get too used to it. While sunshine is still likely for a good part of the work week, temperatures a expected to remain very chilly for this time of year.
A weak surface low in PWS is bringing scattered snow showers to the Sound, the Eastern Kenai Peninsula, and isolated showers to the Cook Inlet region. As much as 6 inches is possible north of Moose Pass around Portage and Whittier today. While accumulations will be light for residents near the Inlet, isolated bursts of snow are possible, bringing a quick inch or two.
A potent low pressure system is strengthening over the Pacific this morning and making its march toward the southern Panhandle. Windy, snowy, and rainy conditions will intensify tomorrow in SE and continue into Wednesday.
Very cold, dry, north winds are bringing wind chills down to 65 below along the Arctic coast. It is going to be a bitterly cold day for northern and western parts of the state. The Interior, though not enduring as wicked of a blast of arctic air, will see single digits to low teens for highs with mostly cloudy skies.
It is a frosty forecast. One saving grace will be the likelihood of sunshine for a good chunk of the state. If you can stay out of the cold winds and temperatures, you should be able to soak in some rays.
