Invasion of Rain Drops
It was nice while it lasted. But all good things must come to an end. And so it is with the beautiful Autumn weather of the past two days.
It was nice while it lasted. But all good things must come to an end. And so it is with the beautiful Autumn weather of the past two days. Rain clouds attached to the next weather system are lurking. And it's likely they will be approaching tomorrow bringing not only showers to the coastal areas of the Southcentral region, but more snow to the higher elevations of the mountains. And speaking of snow... It continues to get lower and lower on the mountains so you know it's only a matter of time before it reaches the Anchorage Bowl. It's quite likely we may even see a little dusting if not measurable snow by the end of this week. Temperatures overnight are definitely dropping below freezing in more and more parts of town.
The Interior should be shielded from the rain with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 40's. Lows, however, will again drop into the 20s.
Most of the Northwestern part of Alaska will dry out a bit with partly sunny skies from Kotzebue and Nome to Mcgrath. And temperatures in the region will remain on the brisk side, reminding us that winter is right around the corner.
More rain and windy weather for the Alaska Peninsula with just enough time to take a quick break in between systems. Seems the lows are lined up like taxi's at an airport. And they're all following the same path for now. There is some good news, however, regarding this constant pounding of rain and gusty winds. You will not be seeing much of a change in your temperatures from highs to lows. they will remain about the same. That's right. Your highs and lows will both be in the low to mid 40s.
Not to be left out, the Kenai Peninsula will also see rain showers especially on the windward sides of the mountains. Gusty winds will also be noted in the usual areas of Portage Valley and Turnagain arm. And since there's plenty to go around we might as well share the rain with the Southeast Panhandle. Rain showers from Haines to Juneau to Sitka and Ketchikan. Temperatures will continue to top out in the low 50's.
