Our cool-down was brief, another warm-up is on the way
You may run into a few slick spots around town overnight and early Wednesday as temperatures dropped below freezing for most of Anchorage south and east of Minnesota, in Eagle River, and parts of the Mat-Su. The sub-freezing temperatures combined with light rain that moved through the area means pockets of freezing rain are possible.
Despite seeing temperatures drop the last two days, another round of warmer weather is on the way. Our upper-level winds continue to flow out of the south, keeping temperatures 10-15° above normal for this time of year as temperatures return to the low to mid-40s for the rest of the week.
We'll continue to see mostly cloudy skies along with chances for light rain off and on. Temperatures will drop briefly below freezing again this weekend, but there is still no consistent cold or any significant chances for snow in the forecast.
Despite seeing the one quick burst of snow three weeks ago, we've yet to see more than a quarter of an inch fall. On average we see our first 1" snowfall by October 22nd, but in 2018 and 2017 we didn't get that first snow until November 11th and November 5th.
Snow or not, have a great start to your Wednesday!
