Snow To Start Iditarod 2012
In Anchorage we will gain a couple of inches of accumulation over the next few days, but nothing to significant for the region.

Let's get ready for "The Last Great Race" Alaska. Tomorrow brings a sunrise at 7:52 a.m. with increasing clouds & light snow. Low pressure continues to brew around coastal areas of the state. This is causing us to see light moisture around the P.W.S. and Kenai Peninsula.
This system won't start to budge until tomorrow afternoon, and going into Sunday. One thing that will not budge is these temperatures that are slightly below normal. We are off a few degrees here in Anchorage but not as bad as the Northwest and North Slope.
High pressure continues to take a tight grip along the Northwest and Interior this weekend. In Fairbanks light snow will enter for your Saturday afternoon tapering off by evening. Unfortunately for the West temperatures will remain in subzero territory for the weekend and even into late next week.
In Anchorage we will gain a couple of inches of accumulation over the next few days, but nothing to significant for the region. By Sunday afternoon we should be sitting in some sunshine as this system moves south into the Gulf Of Alaska. By next week more cloud coverage will take over with temperatures pretty steady in the 20's.
As you head downtown be sure to bundle up as temperatures will be in the upper teens in Anchorage. Then go enjoy more Fur Rondy events because we won't see that sunset until 6:32 p.m. Anchorage we are at 10 hours 39 minutes 59 seconds of daylight and on March 8th we will hit the 11 hour mark.
