Storms push through the area but we still could stay dry

By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Highs in the mid 60's on Monday with mostly cloudy skies.

A fairly active pattern is in store for the region, as several waves of storm energy out of the east cross the area and bring burst of rising air (favorable for precipitation) along with increasing precipitation potential. We are looking at 2" of rain in the Copper River Basin east of Anchorage to the Wrangell Mountains. As winds blow out of the east and the southeast over the next 24-hours or so, most of the Anchorage Bowl and Western Kenai Peninsula will remain in the rain shadow (keeping dry) for most of the time.

Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy on Monday in Anchorage with a high near 66 degrees as winds blow out of the west at 15 mph and up to 30 mph along Turnagain Arm. Monday night we drop down to 52 degrees while under mostly cloudy skies with southeast winds from 10-20 mph but up to 40 mph along Turnagain Arm and in higher elevations

Cloudy on Tuesday with a high of 64 degrees with variable 10 mph winds but with winds. Tuesday night we drop down to 50 degrees while under mostly cloudy skies.

Looking ahead, Anchorage will be partly cloudy early on Wednesday becoming mostly sunny later on while we warm up to 69 degrees for a high temperature.
