Anchorage is expected to see clear skies and temperatures reaching into the mid 50s throughout the week, a meteorologist said.
Temperatures earlier in April hit the 40s, but National Weather Service Meteorologist Michael Vuotto said this week marks the first week that temperatures are rising into the 50s. Both Monday and Tuesday are expected to see high temperatures of 54 degrees and low temperatures around 32 degrees.
The warm up falls in line with other years and Vuotto said temperatures are about average for the end of April.
Clear skies are expected throughout Anchorage for most of the week, which Vuotto said seems to be encouraging people to get outside.
“It seems like with what’s been going on lately that the sunshine is definitely having people heading outdoors and enjoying the nicer weather,” he said.
