Anchorage, historically, has proven to be a nightmare to forecast for. I don’t think that will change.
At 853AM, Alaska time, Anchorage was reporting a temperature of 37 degrees with cloudy skies. A broad area of low pressure crashing into western Alaska was sending an occluded front south through the Anchorage area, and substantial snows were being seen all around the Cook Inlet, however none of it had reached Anchorage by 9AM. With temperatures continuing to rise during the day, expect most activity in southern Alaska to be rain, though some snow my still mix in.
The system is winding itself up over the center of Alaska, and will continue to infuse moisture into Anchorage. Expect a snowy, rainy couple of days in Anchorage, with wind on the increase, though most of the moisture will be stunted by the high elevation of the Kenai Peninsula.
