It's here, the official start of the 2019 Iditarod through The Last Frontier.

Leading up to the event was plenty of sunshine and pleasant weather for all of Southcentral, but like all good things, it must come to an end.

Clouds will continue to build into Willow through the first part of the morning with the potential for some flurries through mid-morning. Expect temperatures to be in the teens through the first part of the morning with calm winds. Snow depth is sitting healthy at just over a foot and a half for Willow, making for an easy start for the mushers.

Peaks of sunshine will occur through the day, but primarily during the afternoon hours as clouds begin to slowly break away. It'll be another pleasant day temperature wise, as highs top out in the lower 30s for the official restart of the race at 2 p.m. 

Little impact will be expected for mushers along the trail to Skwentna, as clouds will gradually clear out through the day and into the night. However, as soon as the sun drops, temperatures will quickly fall into the teens for tonight into Monday where some freezing fog could be likely. 

Here's a look at the official forecast for the restart of the Iditarod from the KTVA Weather Team:

High: 32
Low: 14
Flurries Possible
Calm Winds
