Winter Weather Advisory as another round of freezing drizzle targets Southcentral
Temperatures dropped overnight. Down below freezing, the cold push allowed a lot of the water on roadways to refreeze early Friday morning. To make matters worse, the same storm that brought Freezing rain and snow to Southcentral Thursday will do the same Friday morning.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in place until noon for Anchorage, Palmer, Wasilla, Willow, and Talkeetna for freezing drizzle.
As temperatures warm, the push of moisture will slow. Through the second half of the day, Anchorage and the Valley will dry out with temperatures topping out in the upper-30s. Mostly cloudy skies might let through a couple of peeks of sunshine, but don't expect the sunshine we saw Thursday.
Temperatures will fall below freezing overnight once again, raising concern of additional freezing.
As the weekend begins, we will hang on to clouds and the chance of showers. Saturday brings the chance of a light wintry mix early in the day, but don't expect much more than a few icy bits of drizzle. We will climb to near 40 degrees once again, meaning whatever we do see early in the day will quickly melt.
Sunday offers our best chance of snow. There is little model agreement on what exactly happens with the storm. We could see anything from a dry day to accumulating snow. Judging by our fall-to-date, I'm not hanging my hat on any guaranteed snow. But the optimist in me will keep hoping for something to stick.
Moisture stays in the forecast next week. Temperatures look to stay warm enough that the guaranteed snow waits just a little bit longer.
Despite the forecast, my fingers are crossed for snow! After all, we're officially halfway through November!
