An upper level low pressure area continues to slowly make it's way into the northern Gulf of Alaska. Cyclonic flow around the low is drawing copious low level moisture into the SE Panhandle, Southcentral, and the central and eastern Interior.
Rain will continue into the evening in SE, PWS, the Alaska Range, along with Fairbanks and surrounding communities. Some of the showers may be heavy.
Rain is still falling from earlier this morning over the Lower Kuskokwim in SW. A band of rain extends to the SE toward Bristol Bay. Widely scattered showers are possible there into tonight.
The west coast and western Interior may see a few scattered to isolated showers but most areas (especially near the coast) will remain dry. Partial sunshine is likely for the western and northern portions of the state.
Expect highs in the 40s and 50s Aleutians and SW, 50s in Southcentral and SE, and 60s and 70s for the Interior. The warmest readings will likely be in Fort Yukon, where highs will hit the mid-70s.
As stated in yesterday's weather discussion, gray skies and a few showers will persist in Anchorage through Wednesday, with a little clearing to end the week and through the weekend. Highs will return to the 60s by Thursday.
