ANCHORAGE, Alaska — We had that brief burst of sunshine a couple of weeks ago but now temperatures are a bit closer to average and it still feels like winter in parts of the state.
Snow again in Southwest and Southcentral on Friday. Cool temperatures will continue across the west coast of the state. These temps are fairly close to averages for this time of year and are keeping snow showers in the areas.
The Interior is starting to see some indications of summer. Highs on May 11 in Fairbanks should hit 60 degrees and there were a half dozen lightning strikes in the area on Thursday.
As that area of low pressure moves on shore, the front is moving through Southeast. More rain, heavy at times around Yakutat and Sitka. Also, looking at strong winds for many areas of Southeast with winds gusting to 45 miles per hour.
More clouds in Southcentral with scattered rain showers through the day. Snow showers this Friday morning around Seward. The good news is temperatures should reach into the mid to low 50s!
