The pleasant weather continues in southcentral Alaska for the Easter weekend. Temperatures will stay warm into the low 50s on Friday and Saturday — within a few degrees of record highs. The record high for April 14 is 54 degrees, set last year in 2016.

The sunshine will continue as well, with a few more clouds entering the picture by Sunday. Conditions will be dry across the region for the holiday, with partly cloudy to partly sunny conditions. Easter Sunday sunrise will happen around 6:30 a.m., with the sun staying up until about 9:30 p.m.

After several days of record and near record highs in southeast Alaska, a slight cool down is in store for the weekend.

Sunshine and mild temperatures will continue for the panhandle Friday, with high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s. A weak disturbance begins moving from south to north by Saturday night, which will bring more clouds and isolated shower chances for southeast on Saturday and scattered showers for the first part of Sunday. High temperatures over the weekend will range from the upper 40s to low 50s.
