Alaska Day remains dry with partly cloudy skies

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - While under partly cloudy skies Friday Anchorage warms to near 42 degrees.

Over Southcentral Alaska, airflow from the north will continue Friday but will diminish gradually throughout the day. Our latest storm just off of the Kenai Peninsula Coast is weakening as it moves off to the south to meet up with more storms.

Several of these weak storms have the potential to bring isolated to scattered rain and snow showers Friday afternoon through the (best chances are for Saturday) weekend, but for the most part, steadier precipitation/more widespread showers will remain offshore and along the coast.

For the extended period, a low-pressure storm over the central Bering Sunday will slowly track southward into Monday evening. Associated storm energy will track across the Gulf. This will bring scattered showers and or flurries to both the Gulf and Aleutians, though no significant accumulations are expected. A low will approach the Alaska Peninsula by Tuesday morning. It is still a few days out but this storm is expected to bring noticeable weather in the form of rain/snow as well as gusty winds across Southwest and or Southcentral regions of Alaska.

Partly cloudy in Anchorage on Friday with a high temperature of 42 degrees. Mostly cloudy Friday night with a low of 35 degrees.

Cloudy in Anchorage on Saturday with a high of 43 degrees with rain and snow chances around 40 percent. Saturday night we will be mostly cloudy with a low of 35 degrees.

Looking ahead, Anchorage will be mostly cloudy on Sunday with a high of 43 degrees.
