Storm headed for Southcentral this weekend
Southcentral will transition from clear and cold to cloudy and mild and eventually wet and windy by the end of the weekend.
Most of southcentral was treated to crystal clear blue skies to end the work week as high pressure kept the area storm-free. The clear skies combined with cooler air moving in from the north also meant some of the coldest temperatures we've experienced since April.
As the high pressure over Southcentral weakens and moves south, clouds are rolling in from the west and we'll see mostly cloudy skies Saturday. This means slightly warmer temperatures overnight, but we'll otherwise be mild and still dry to kick off the weekend.
By late Saturday/early Sunday, most of Southcentral will begin seeing rain, which will continue through Sunday night. We'll also likely see breezy winds through the Turnagain arm, and for the higher elevations of Anchorage. High temperatures will hold near 50°.
It's back to dry weather Monday, but we'll see showers off and on for most of next week.
Have a great weekend!
