Snow Returning? Maybe.
Well it seems things may finally be getting back on track as far as winter weather in Anchorage.
Well it seems things may finally be getting back on track as far as winter weather in Anchorage. We will continue to see a southeast onshore flow through Thursday so we will stay dry in Anchorage, the Matanuska Valley, and most of the western Kenai Peninsula. That will also mean continued rain and snow for the eastern Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound. But Friday things get interesting. Weather models are showing a system somewhat similar to last weeks system that dropped 3 to 12 inches of snow over parts of south central developing. Right now I’m leaning on the conservative side of things, with just a few inches of snow, as models yesterday were showing this system further to the east. I’ll discuss this system in more detail tomorrow if the models start showing more consistency in the development and location of the low. Towards the weekend and into next week look for a big cool down for the region.
For the rest of the state. In the southeast you will continue to see rain and snow throughout much of the rest of the week. Out west things will begin to dry out and cool off by the end of the week. Over the Interior you could see a little snow heading your way Thursday and then temperatures take a big dip this weekend and into next week.
