An upper low remains over southern Alaska. Strong, jet flow ahead of the low brought heavy rain to SE yesterday and overnight. The jet has cleared the area but showers near the low center will continue for central and northern Panhandle. The southern end will have partly cloudy skies and drier weather.
The bulk of the cloud cover associated with the low is now over the eastern mainland. It will remain cloudy and showery along the Alcan and in PWS. The back side of the low is wrapping showers into Denali Park, the Mat Su Valley, and Anchorage Bowl.
Slow-moving showers continue in SW, as yesterday's jet steak now extends from the Y-K Delta through Bristol Bay and down to Kodiak Island. Rain will break up tonight.
Most of the northern Interior and NW will be sunny and warm.
Expect highs in the 50s to low 60s in SE, 50s to near 60 in Southcentral, 60s and 70s in the Interior, 50s and 60s along the west coast, and 50s Aleutians and AK Peninsula.
Looking into tomorrow, dry air has pressed into parts of the Kenai Peniusula today and will push into Anchorage and the Valley tonight and tomorrow morning. This will bring us brief clearing. The sunshine will be short-lived---mainly tomorrow morning and early afternoon. A more moist southerly flow will resume by evening.
