Are you ready for a cold weekend?
Temperatures drop to sub-zero readings in many areas of Alaska.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Weather has been so cold in Alaska and even in Anchorage. More cold arctic air will continue to hang around over the weekend. A broad area of cyclonic flow continues over southwest and southcentral Alaska, with northwest winds for the Aleutian Islands. This pattern continues to bring in cold air, with the storm track headed toward the south.
Southeast Alaska will deal with a mix of rain and snow that has prompted some concerns. Weather advisories are out for several locations in southeast Alaska. Juneau is on track for 5-10 inches accumulation of snow, and snow overnight for Petersburg, Sitka and Ketchikan but mixing with and turning into rain Saturday afternoon.
The Interior and northern sections of the state will likely see 50 degrees below zero wind chills over the weekend. The cold can be very dangerous.
