Veterans Day weather forecast for Alaska
Ever wonder what the weather is like in Alaska? Well, tomorrow is Veterans Day, November 11, 2008, and it looks like a calm and mild day all the way from Seward up to Prudhoe Bay (Deadhorse). Here are the brief forecasts for each town in mid-Alaska, starting in the mid-south at Seward, and working our way up to the top.
Rain and snow. No snow accumulation. Highs in the 30s. East wind 10 to 25 mph except east 35 to 45 mph through Portage Valley and Turnagain Arm.
Cloudy with a chance of rain and snow. Highs in the lower to mid 30s. Northeast wind 10 to 15 mph except southeast 30 to 45 mph along Turnagain Arm and higher elevations.
Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain and snow. Highs in the upper 20s to mid 30s except in the lower to mid 20s toward the park. North wind 10 to 15 mph.
Partly cloudy. Highs 10 to 20. Light winds in valleys. East winds to 15 mph on the hills.
Prudhoe Bay, Alaska
Mostly cloudy. Blowing snow. Patchy fog. Highs around 10 above. East winds 20 to 25 mph.
This is actually a mild day for everyone. One thing you can see is that even on a calm day like this there is close to a 30-degree temperature difference between the south (Seward) and the far north (Deadhorse). As a point of contrast, Louisville, Kentucky is headed for a high near 50 degrees tomorrow, and Mesa, Arizona is headed for a balmy 70 degrees.
