Sun today, snow tomorrow for parts of Southcentral
Before you slip into full-on panic mode, don't worry— most of the snow sticks to higher elevations and farther north. Here in Anchorage, we will likely see cold rain with a few flakes mixed in; leaving most of the winter precip to the folks up the hill.
If you're looking at getting out before the storm, today is the day. Another round of clouds and sun with temperatures climbing into the mid to upper-30s in the afternoon. The perfect fall day. Without thick cloud cover, temperatures will likely fall into the 20s overnight.
Clouds build Wednesday as our next storm closes in on Southcentral. Showers will develop in Anchorage later in the day. Temperatures will be hovering right around freezing as the storm moves in. That gives us the chance for some snow. With recent warmth and this storm moving in from the south, most of that snow will stay to the north and up in higher elevations.
Places like the Valley, Glennallen, the Copper River Basin, and higher elevations get all of the fun. Anchorage might see a little wintry mix overnight into early Thursday morning. But, once again, the storm moving in from the south will keep us from seeing any snow accumulation in town this go-round.
The chance of showers sticks with us through the end of the week. Temperatures will stay about 10 degrees above normal, meaning what falls in Anchorage will be rain and not snow.
As the storm nears, stay with the KTVA weather team for the latest.
