ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - The Fourth of July, 2022, will be golden in Southcentral with plenty of blue sky and golden sunshine. Afternoon temperatures stay “above normal”, and similar to the past couple of days, in the lower to middle 70s. Yes, sunscreen and sunglasses will continue to be your best friends.

Smoke from the fires in Southwest and the Interior should still stay away from Southcentral late Monday. The glows of twilight along with a few clouds will provide for a beautiful backdrop for fireworks. With the very high fire danger, and the direction of local fire officials, please just stick to viewing the “official” shows. Anchorage’s fireworks display begins after the baseball double header at Mulcahy Stadium, currently projected around 11 p.m. Temperatures will still be comfortably mild in the lower to middle 60s. If going, definitely pack along plenty of bug spray.

Confidence is growing from our extended range computer models that a change in the weather pattern is coming. The change would begin mid-week and bring a return to wetter, unsettled conditions across Southcentral and the Interior for late week and into next weekend. Temperatures are likely to be more closer to normal in the middle to upper 60s as well.

Happy Fourth to you and yours! Stay safe out there, and God Bless America!
