It was a regular middle of the road day in Girdwood, 34° at the T, tiny frozen precipitation this morning, spotty sun, and a brief rain around 4 pm. Not too exciting but not too bad either. Those who came to ski had crowd free slopes again today due to most outdoor enthusiasts watching the Iditarod. Yea dog teams, let’s wish them all safe travels across western Alaska.
The grey clouds were moving in with the intent of settling early in the evening. There is a low pressure system over southwest Alaska over the Aleutians and another low system west over the Bering moving this way. They will kick up some moisture as the rotations develop counterclockwise. That moisture should grace Glacier Valley and the surrounding mountains with lots of fresh snow.
