Siberia Russia will push cold air through the Bering Strait into the central Aleutians on Friday before this cold air starts moving east (slowly) into the Alaska mainland. High pressure will be off to the east sitting over the state of Alaska. The storms from Russia will move into the eastern Bering Sea/Western Alaska coast on Saturday but will weaken as the system runs into the high pressure over the mainland. Storms developing over the Northern Pacific/Southern Gulf on Saturday for now look to stay south of the coast (Southcentral) with little impact to noticeable weather conditions. Systems in the Bering might launch storms to develop south of the Alaska Peninsula on Sunday, moving into the northern Gulf on Monday. This will increase precipitation chances from the Alaska Peninsula through the norther Gulf Coast and into Southcentral. It is a wait and see for the precipitation type from rain, a rain/snow mix to straight up snow as this all depends on how cold the area becomes.
