Cloudy skies and showers into Monday
Temperatures were noticeably cooler today, thanks to cloudy skies and showers. While heavy rain isn't expected, the showery activity will stick around through the evening hours and into Monday. Most of the activity today has primarily been confined to Coastal Alaska, but showers have drifted as far north as the valley. While it has been cooler, the showery activity will help lower pollen counts in the coming days, despite the greenup that continues across Southcentral.
With clouds hanging around into the night, temperatures will only bottom out near 40 degrees. Another round of showers will continue into Monday, but most of the activity will have shifted to the east. We'll see warmer temperatures into Monday, as afternoon highs will top out in the low to mid 50s. Although it will be warmer, you'll want to watch out for any showery activity if you are heading outdoors.
A wet pattern is shaping up for Southcentral, although most of the activity will primarily be focused on the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound. This will mean the cloudy skies are here to stay as we head into the week, but thankfully temperatures stay in the 50s. Some spot showers are possible in Anchorage through the week, but most of the bowl will remain on the dry side. Heading into the weekend, temperatures look to rebound back into the mid 50s with partly sunny skies.
Have a great Sunday!
