Alaska Forecast

Alaska Weather

Updated: Thursday 7:29pm


Good evening everyone! Did you see the Partial Solar Eclipse that happened today? It started just before noon and lasted until about 2:30pm. The only way to really notice it is by staring directly at the sun... and of course that's not the best idea. Enough about that, time for the forecast!


TONIGHT - Another chilly one out there with lows dropping into the mid 20's overnight tonight. Clouds will be increasing through the evening hours tonight which will moderate the temperatures in the evening slightly.


FRIDAY - For your Friday! Get excited the weekend is here! Expect the morning and afternoon to be dry with mostly cloudy skies and temperatures will warm up into the mid to upper 30's. This is where it gets a little interesting.... Around 10pm or so, expect showers to increase but really not a whole lot in the way of precipitation will fall. Models are forecasting 0.006" of precip or about maybe a 1/10th of an inch of snow, that is if it does fall as such. It will be short lived, then it dries out.


LONG TERM - Once we get through Friday night into Saturday morning, things dry out and clear out once again. Yesterday models had snow early on next week but really a complete 180 degree turn around. Now the models are saying dry and cool all next week with temperatures near average. Have a great night everyone!
