It Could Be Better But…
Nothing like a thin sheet of clouds to put a mask on an otherwise nice weekend.
Nothing like a thin sheet of clouds to put a mask on an otherwise nice weekend. And it looks like the weekend clouds will be sticking around for the remainder of your Sunday in the Southcentral region. A low in the Northern Bering Sea is not going anywhere. The good news is you should remain rain free at least until tomorrow night.
If you’re looking for summer sunshine you’ll find it along the Southeast Panhandle as a ridge of high pressure extends up into the Gulf of Alaska. The Interior is also looking pretty good with areas of sun, clouds, and just a few showers around the mountains. Temperatures couldn’t be better. They're expected to top out in the 70’s for both the Interior and the Southeast. It’s shake and bake weather baby…ordered just for you!!!
As usual, in between these two systems will be the active weather. Strong gusty winds will be blowing along the Alaska Peninsula and Western Alaska with rain showers as far North as Nome through tomorrow. Temperatures will also be on the cool side. Kotzebue is the only spot likely to escape the rain and cooler temperatures. Tomorrow they should be getting close to 70 degrees…Not bad for a town north of the Arctic Circle!!
The rest of the state will see slightly above average temperatures as we peak into our summer season.
