...A cold Labor Day weekend expected across much of southcentral Alaska...

Arctic air will move in behind the current storm system resulting in colder than normal temperatures across much of southcentral Alaska this weekend...especially during the overnight and early morning hours. The colder air will arrive first in the northern Susitna Valley and along the Denali Highway from Cantwell to Paxson tonight...possibly producing some minor snow accumulation before precipitation tapers off early Saturday morning.

Skies will gradually clear out from west to east across southcentral tonight through Saturday night. Temperatures will dip into the 30s in the typically colder locations early Saturday morning. Even colder temperatures are expected by early Sunday morning... with temperatures in the 20s from the northern Susitna Valley to northwest Copper Basin and in the 30s for much of the remainder of southcentral Alaska.

Recreational enthusiasts and other interested parties should plan accordingly when making plans for the Labor Day weekend.
