A ridge of high pressure is strengthening over the Gulf of Alaska. It will nudge into southern Alaska as the day goes on. While cool, moist air will endure through most of the morning, it will gradually be overtaken by the drier air and sunshine will begin to pop over much of the state's southern half.
Status layer and fog will be tough to burn off over coast areas from SW into the SE Panhandle. The southern inner channels of SE will be less impacted and, therefore, warmer. Look for highs in the 50s to near 60 in SW, Kodiak, and the outer and northern islands of SE, to 60s around Ketchikan and Hyder.
Cloudy skies and rain will persist in the Interior. Showers will taper off late. Highs will reach the 60s to low 70s.
A front will swing through the North Slope, keeping temps in the 40s around Wainwright with clouds and showers. Ahead of the front, highs will climb into the low 60s in Deadhorse.
Most of the West will be dry with mostly to partly cloudy skies. Expect highs in the 50s.
In Anchorage, clouds will break this morning and begin to clear in the afternoon. Highs will reach the low 60s. Partly cloudy skies are expected tomorrow and Wednesday with highs into the 60s to near 70. Wind flow will be weak and the atmosphere stable, so rain is a minimal threat until Wednesday night, when a few showers and isolated mountain thunderstorms become possible.
