  1. #1

    Default Weather "STATEMENT" for South Centeral Alaska WIND..."SNOW"

    HERE IS A SUMMARY OF THE EXPECTED IMPACTS:

    1. STRONG GUSTY WINDS
    NEARLY ALL OF SOUTHCENTRAL CAN EXPECT TO SEE SOME GUSTY WINDS.
    THE STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE THROUGH GAPS IN THE MOUNTAINS...
    ESPECIALLY FOR COMMUNITIES ALONG PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND INCLUDING
    SEWARD...WHITTIER AND VALDEZ. WINDS WILL BLOW PRIMARILY OUT OF
    THE NORTH...THOUGH THE DIRECTION WILL VARY DEPENDING ON THE
    ORIENTATION OF MOUNTAIN GAPS.

    WHEN: WINDS WILL INCREASE THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING AND PEAK
    MOST PLACES THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING. WINDS WILL
    DIMINISH FRIDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT.

    AGL,

    It's pure crap north of the range also and with snow predicted. The barley crop is green and unharvested so the snow will flatten it and prevent harvest......this is bound to affect the price of barley in the world so I suggest you stock up on beer now before the big price increase.

    Snow in Alaska and hail in the lower 48 all impact wheat crops, hopefully there is crop insurance available up here too.

    One good thing comes out of it, flattened barley crops = Great goose hunting!

    Just as important, I had some ice cream at the Tangle Inn on the Denali Highway last week - the best I've had in years. They said it was from a Delta Junction Creamery - any idea what the brand might be? Can't be too many dairies that make ice cream up there.

    The older a person gets, the more they care about weather. Also, they tend to blow their weather wad early, always thinking the inevitable comes sooner than actuality. It's like a metaphor for the life's end, but remember .... We all still love you and your posts AGL4now!

    Northern Lights Dairy in Delta makes great ice cream and is available at the IGA store or at the creamery/dairy farm at Mile 7 Nistler Road [my neighbors].......Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry I think are the only flavors.

    No fancy packages nor advertising hype....

    Now back to the weather as it has moderated a bit but snow is still expected this weekend. This weather has saved quite a few rams I suspect.

    Don't forget Dippin' Dots at the Alaska State Fair. Also don't forget to play the "What do I count more of on the Valley locals; Tats, Teeth, or Piercings". Good family fun.

    I'm guessing teeth might come a little lower on that list of sightings.
