Rain continues in the Interior spiraling around an upper low. Periods of rain will fall east of Manley Hot Springs to the Alcan border. Some of the showers could be heavy. Highs will top out in the 60s.
An upper trough extends southward into the Gulf, where rain is still falling this morning. The steady rain has moved south of Anchorage and the Mat Su, but lighter scattered showers are still possible this morning with isolated heavier showers developing this afternoon, especially if clouds break enough to allow for some surface heating.
Anchorage only warmed to 49 yesterday, thanks to all-day rain. For today, little if any sunshine is expected in the Bowl. Highs will be in the 50s.
Rain will fall most of the day in PWS and the northern Panhandle. An additional half inch to an inch is likely for most locales in the region. Scattered showers are anticipated in SE. Expect highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
If sunshine is what you're after, go west! A strengthening upper ridge over the Bering Sea has nudged into western Alaska. As a result, clouds have cleared in Bristol Bay, the AK Peninsula, and all of the western Interior. This is a dry, cool flow from the north impacting the western half of the state, so temps have been chilly this morning along the west coast. Dense fog has been persistent in areas, as well. By late afternoon, coastal regions will see the fog burn off and temps will warm into the 40s and 50s with 60s and 70s inland.
