Anchorage sees most consecutive days with rain in 10 months
Friday was our fourth straight day of rain in Anchorage. The last time we saw four straight days of measurable precipitation was 93 days ago when that precipitation fell as snow! The last time we saw four consecutive days of rain was more than 10 months ago in September 2018.
Scattered showers are likely across Southcentral again Saturday as an area of low pressure moves from west to east across the Gulf of Alaska. This will bring significant rain to the Kenai Peninsula and Prince William Sound with lighter showers off and on in Anchorage and the Mat-Su.
By Sunday that storm will be down in SE and we'll only see chances for lingering showers across Southcentral. Dry weather is likely for most of the region starting Monday, along with sun breaks and high temperatures flirting with 70° once again.
Welcome to the rainy season! Hopefully, it means we get to say goodbye to wildfires and smoky/hazy skies.
