Wednesday Evening Alaska Weather Update:
Alaska is finally coming out of the week-long warm spell during which most areas lost several feet of snowpack to the sun. Temperatures in Palmer sored to an unbelievable 56 degrees late last week. However temps are now coming back down below freezing, though still well above average. A weak but persistent low has been sustaining a strong onshore flow out of the SE over the area, producing some light overrunning snow during the last couple days. This will continue through Friday as another storm system moves in from the west, however the models are now coming into agreement on high pressure building in from the north by Saturday, which should keep the lows far enough south to allow some fairly pleasant partly-cloudy weather to move in for the weekend over most of the mainland. The high pressure will break down again middle of next week, but we'll take all the sun we can get!
We shall see what happens!
