Anchorage Ski Outlook - 4.5.2023

THURS - FRI: partly sunny, light winds, moderate temps (moderate confidence).
Quiet weather for the end of the work week with in-and-out sun and light snow showers. Thurs will be sunniest in the Kenai Mtns; Fri will be least cloudy at Hatcher. Light ridgetop winds. Sun affect on southerly slopes if/when the sun comes out. Decreased confidence due to timing of sunniness and showers.
WEEKEND: stormy, cloudy, dropping temps (moderate confidence).
A stormy weekend is on tap with all of our mountains receiving snow. The mountains closest to the western Prince William Sound are favored (moderate snow for Turny/Gird) with lighter snow elsewhere. Heaviest snow (and highest winds) will be Sunday in the WPWS mountains when temps will be cold for this time of year. No rain concerns.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: mostly cloudy, light snow, cool (low confidence).
Light snow, showers, and clouds look to continue for our zone into midweek. Low confidence in timing of snow with some sun possible in between. Moderate winds Monday for the mountains around the PWS and the ANC/ER FRange. No rain concerns.
