A mixed bag of weather this week
After record rainfall this weekend and what is now already the wettest May on record, we'll see a couple more opportunities to add to this month's rain before the start of June on Saturday.
Isolated showers developed across the Kenai and Chugach Mountains late Tuesday, bringing rain showers to Kenai, Soldotna, Anchorage, and Wasilla. Showers will continue to linger through the night.
While we'll still see some cloud cover Wednesday, we'll also see plenty of sun breaks and shouldn't see much rain. Temperatures will start out in the upper 40s, returning to near 60 degrees by Wednesday afternoon.
A stronger storm will move in from the south Thursday. The biggest impacts from this area of low pressure will be along the coastal areas of Southcentral, including Kodiak, Seward and Prince William Sound where moderate to heavy rainfall is likely. Further north in Anchorage, we'll see chances for light showers. High temperatures will stay near 60 degrees, which is normal for this time of year.
This storm will continue to wobble around the northern Pacific most of this week and weekend, but for Anchorage and the Mat-Su, we'll be too far north to see much more than occasional cloud cover and temperatures will hold steady all week.
Have a great evening and start to your Wednesday!
