.DISCUSSION...
Scattered rain or snow showers will continue today as low
pressure crosses the Alaska Range with temperatures holding steady
in the upper 30s to around 40. Winds are expected to increase
slightly through the pass this afternoon and tonight as the
pressure gradient strengthens in response to troughing developing
on the lee side of the range. Weak high pressure will build in
aloft tonight, which will further taper off the snow showers to
just flurries for late tonight into Wednesday. Winds are also
expected to diminish late tonight with the building high pressure.
