Shamrocks And Shenanigans!
Enjoy that corned beef and cabbage tomorrow, along with some well deserved sun.
So there happens to be some rules for St. Patrick's Day, like try your best to find a four-leaf clover, wear green, kiss the blarney stone -- and I think we should add a day full of sunshine.
Tomorrow we'll try our best to catch a leprechaun, and you will have plenty of time to do that because tomorrow is the first day we hit 12 hours of daylight in Anchorage. Partly sunny conditions will grace us, making us feel a little better just in case you get pinched for not wearing green.
Most of our moisture will be found throughout the Panhandle today, where the Southern Inner Channels will deal with rain, while the Capital City starts off the day with snow accumulation of 2 inches. The switch to rain will hit the northern half of the region by mid-afternoon.
Quiet and cold remains the forecast for the North Slope and Interior throughout the weekend and even going into next week. Wind chill advisories are in place today for Anaktuvuk Pass where wind chills will drop to 65 below.
Throughout Southcentral, portions of Kenai and Homer will get scattered to isolated snow, but things will start to settle down tonight turning into mostly cloudy conditions. Anchorage, we'll have to wait until maybe next week to beat that snowfall record, as things will stay dry today and tomorrow. We do have a chance of snow Sunday evening into Monday morning. Enjoy temperatures in the lower 30s, while overnights stay in the mid 20s.
Enjoy that corned beef and cabbage tomorrow, along with some well deserved sun. Have a wonderful weekend Alaska.
