A “Sunout” Planned
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday the KTVA studio in Anchorage received .41 inches of rain (that’s just under half an inch). And today a return to summer sunshine and highs in the 70’s for Merrill Field.
What a difference a day makes! Yesterday the KTVA studio in Anchorage received .41 inches of rain (that’s just under half an inch). And today a return to summer sunshine and highs in the 70’s for Merrill Field. I’ll tell you right now… there’s more on the way!
This entire workweek is looking sunny with highs in the upper 60’s and low 70’s. Summer is finally upon us and you should enjoy every minute of it because the fireweed is also upon us and you know what that means.
Kotzebue and Nome will be happy to see the current weather maker exit the region so they can dry up a bit tomorrow and climb out of the low 50’s and back into the upper 50’s.
That low that brought us all the rainout of summer is now taking aim on the Southeast Panhandle. So rain and cool weather will again be the rule of thumb.
The Inteior will begin to clear out tomorrow. As conditions improve and temperatures climb there may be a bit of competition for the “hot spot” in Alaska tomorrow between Fairbanks and Anchorage (I wouldn’t rule out Seward either).
Also looking at nice conditions is the North Slope where Barrow and Prudhoe Bay will see partly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 50’s!!
In the meantime, wet and windy weather will continue for the Alaska Peninsula from Dutch Harbor to Cold Bay. Temperatures however will be pleasantly into the low 60’s for a few spots.
