Very Cold in Alaska! – Tuesday Update 10:30am

Our friends to the north are dealing with some very cold weather this week. Even for Alaska’s standards, this is extreme. Many places started off in the -50 to -60 degree range this morning, with afternoon highs near -45 to -55 in spots. There’s not much sunlight in Alaska this time of the year, so there’s not much of a change between afternoon highs and overnight lows. The cold air is locked up to the north for now, but if the pattern changes between now and early March, it has a chance to come south. So far, there are no signs of this happening, but we’ll keep a close eye on forecast trends. Winter isn’t over just yet.

Meanwhile, temperatures will remain above average through the weekend, with highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Skies will remain mostly cloudy today, but most spots will stay dry. Showers will arrive on Wednesday.
