Anchorage Ski Outlook - 12.7.2022

THURS - FRI: cold, clearing, windy (high confidence).
Windy for Thompson Pass, Seward, Whittier/Portage, and to a lesser extent the Anchorage FRange, Crow Pass, Summit/Turnagain and Mat Valley. Temps dropping and skies slowly clearing with inversions Thurs/Fri night for Turnagain/Summit, East Anchorage, and the Mint Valley. Clearing first for the Kenai and last for Thompson Pass & Hatcher.

WEEKEND: dry -> stormy, moderating temps (moderate confidence).
Saturday starts dry, cold, and gap windy before the winds die briefly then temps begin to moderate with the arrival of Sunday's storm. Heavy snow for Whittier/Portage, with Turnagain/Thompson doing well, and all of our mountains receiving snow. Only rain concern is at sea level in Whittier.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: stormy/partly sunny, moderate temps (low confidence).
Moderate snowfall totals when the Sun/Mon storm wraps up (hopefully 2 feet for Turnagain, but more possible!). On Tuesday winds switch from the south to north bringing partial clearing and dropping temps before possibly (low confidence) another storm later in the week.
