For the month of September, Alaska’s largest city has seen 1.45 inches. And think about this little weather tidbit..on this date in 1981, Anchorage reported 1.5 inches of snow. Take in this short season while you can!
A broad, but weakening circulation of low pressure continues to pump clouds and moisture into southcentral to southeast and inland. The hills surrounding Fairbanks could see a little snow...with the snow level dropping to between 1500-2000 feet through Friday morning.
Anchorage may be seeing cloudy and showery weather, but the real color is in the trees and shrubs as they bow to the colder nights and shorter days. Fall colors are at their peak around the southcentral region.
Want a few nice fall days? They are coming your way. Sunshine builds into southcentral starting Friday. Saturday could be the nicest of the next three days. Labor Day is likely going to be a rainy day.
More rain is expected across Southcentral and Southeast Alaska over the next few days. The heavy rain in the Mat-Su Valleys has caused a Flood Watch for rivers and streams that drain the Talkeetna Mountains.
The weekend will bring in some major weather changes to the state. Rain, high winds and high seas in some cases are anticipated as a series of storms heads through the Aleutians and into southcentral Alaska by Saturday evening.
