The holiday weekend is quickly approaching and we’re going to see a bit of everything throughout much of the state over the weekend. We’ll start in south central. Friday will be mostly cloudy for the region with rain over the Prince William Sound and eastern and southern Kenai Peninsula. The rest of the region will see a few hit and miss showers. Saturday and Sunday we will likely see showers at times over the Prince William Sound and eastern and southern Kenai Peninsula. For the Valley, Anchorage area, & western Kenai Peninsula we will see a mixture of clouds and sunshine with an occasional shower. Monday unfortunately it looks as though the rain showers may become more widespread throughout the region. In the Interior mild temperatures with afternoon showers and maybe a few thunderstorms will be the menu for Friday through Monday. Out west along the coastline fog will likely hug the coast. However further inland you may see some of the nicest weather around the state over the weekend. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will prevail. But the further east you go the more likely you are to run into some afternoon showers. Into the southeast the clouds and showers are on their way back after a bit of sunshine today. It is looking as though Memorial Day will likely be the nicest day in the southeast with the possibility of some drier weather and some sunshine returning.
