Dry by day, Soggy by night
While the wind gusted between 25 and 40 mph Tuesday afternoon and evening on this cloudy day in Anchorage, temperatures still managed to climb into the upper 50s and low 60s across the Anchorage bowl. Just as the sun dipped behind Sleeping Lady at 10:20, the next storm pushed into town.
Rain is likely through Wednesday morning as a potent band of moisture moves in off the Pacific. But just as soon as this storm is arriving, it'll also leave, leaving Anchorage dry with partly sunny skies by lunchtime. Despite the second half of the day being dry and less cloudy, temperatures will be cooler, only reaching the low 50s.
The next storm doesn't arrive until late Thursday, which will leave most of the day dry and mostly sunny before showers arrive in time for the evening commute. It's back to dry weather again Friday before we see chances for showers late Friday night. Highs will hold in the low to mid-50s all week.
Have a great start to your Wednesday!
