ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Our clear and dry conditions will start to phase out as storms push in from the west on Wednesday, leading to a more active weather pattern.  During this period, temperatures will trend warmer and humidity higher as storms will increase the shower and thunderstorm potential across Southcentral.  Unstable storm energy pushing into and up the Alaska Range and Talkeetna mountains should increase shower and thunderstorm chances.  Thunderstorm chances are more likely on the windward side of the mountains as a lot of the valleys are on the leeward or non windward side of the mountains and will stay dry due to mountain storm blocking.  Winds will pick up out of the southeast along Turnagain Arm on Friday as storms in the valley pull on high pressure over the northern Gulf of Alaska.
