Let's talk temperatures---highs in the 70s and 80s are expected in the Interior, inland Southwest, Southcentral, and Southeast. It will be dry and sunny, except for the threat of scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Alaska Range and Talkeetna Mountains.
In Anchorage, low to mid 70s are likely today and tomorrow with a few afternoon clouds.
The warmest temps will be near the Alcan, where mid 80s are possible.
A mature area of low pressure is just south of the Aleutians. A collapsing front is stalling in the AK Peninsula and southern Bering Sea. Along and behind the front, rain is falling. Temperatures are also substantially cooler. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s in Unalaska and Cold Bay, compared to 70s ahead of the front in Bethel and King Salmon.
Upper level flow is steering moisture up the west coast. Mostly cloudy skies and isolated light showers are forecast from the Y-K Delta to Wainwright. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s.
Cooler conditions will overspread the state by next week as the upper ridge breaks down and several small lows embedded within an upper trough push into the mainland. A cooler, wetter pattern is in store for us next week.
Clouds will increase Saturday night in Southcentral with mostly cloudy skies and showers possible by Sunday.
In short, take advantage of the next couple days because we're in for a 10-20 degree drop in temps next week.
