FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) -

WELCOME BACK TO OUR SATURDAY WEATHER. TODAY WAS A LITTLE COOLER THAN WE HAD HOPED FOR, BUT THAT WILL SOON CHANGE DRAMATICALLY.

TODAY’S HIGH WAS 4 ABOVE, WHILE THE OVERNIGHT LOW DROPPED TO 8 BELOW.

THE RECORD HIGH FOR THIS DATE WAS 48 IN 2009, AND THE RECORD LOW PLUMMETED TO 57 BELOW IN 1947.

THE SUNRISE AND SUNSET EQUALS 5 HOURS AND 24 MINUTES FTER A GAIN OF 6 MINUTES.

ACROSS THE REST OF THE STATE, THE COOLEST AIR WAS OVER THE NORTH SLOPE WHILE THE WARMEST WAS COVERING THE SOUTHEAST REGION.

THE SATELLITE AND RADAR SHOWS SOME RAIN MOVING ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST REGION WHILE THE NORTH GULD COAST AND THE SOUTHWEST HAVE A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW SHOWER ACTIVITY.

IN THE LOWER 48 SOME SHOWERS ARE OVER THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST, OTHERWISE THE EASTERN HALF OF THE COUNTRY IS EXPERIENCING RAIN AND SNOW.

TEMPERATURES ARE COOL ACROSS MOST OF THE COUNTRY UNTIL YOU GET TO THE WEST COAST WHERE THEY ARE QUITE WARM.

ALASKA’S OUTLOOK FOR TOMORROW IS FOR A CHANCE OF SNOW FOR BOTH THE NORTH SLOPE AND NOME.

THE INTERIOR WILL HAVE STRONG WINDS TO 45 MPH AT HEALY AND DELTA, OTHERWISE SCATTERED CLOUDS AND WARMER PEMPERATURS WILL PREVAIL.

THE SOUTH EAST WILL SEE RAIN INCREASING FOR BOTH JUNEAU AND KETCHIKAN.

BETHEL WILL SEE A CHANCE OF SNOW WHILE BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WILL DIMINISH FOR COLD BAY. KODIAK WILL HAVE RAIN SHOWERS.

ANCHORAGE WILL BE MOSTLY CLOUDY WHILE RAIN IS EXPECTED FOR HOMER, AND VALDEZ WILL SEE SNOW INCREASING BY TOMORROW NIGHT.

LOCALLY WE CAN EXPECT HIGH CLOUDS AND NOT AS COLD, TOMORROW WILL BE WARMER WITH SCATTERED CLOUDS,TOMORROW NIGHT WILL SEE AN INCREASE IN CLOUDS AND A SLOW WARMING TREND.

THE EXTENDED FORECAST IS FOR SNOW LIKELY TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WITH TEMPERATURES WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK.
