Cooler weather keeps storms at bay for Southcentral
Although today was on the cooler side, that wasn't the case for earlier this morning. Temperatures bottomed out in the mid 50s, making this one of the warmest mornings on record for June 8th.
While seasonal nights typically fall into the upper 40s, clouds have been keeping temperatures on the warmer side each night and cooler during the day. It's this pattern that will bring us another day of temperatures struggling to climb out of the mid 60s as we head into Sunday. While a few spot showers can't be ruled out into the afternoon, the cloudier skies will limit convective activity into the valley.
Even with the cooler weather in place, many areas will still see a round of beautiful weather into the upcoming week. This comes ahead of a cold front that is poised to push through the Gulf of Alaska early into the week. While it will dissipate before reaching us, clouds and moisture associated with the frontal system will stay locked in place across Southcentral. This will mean several days of seeing some rainfall for coastal regions of Alaska and an increase in cloud coverage for the Kenai and Anchorage.
Ahead of the front Southcentral will see a decent afternoon Monday, before clouds hold temperatures in the mid 60s through the rest of the week.
Have a great Sunday!
