Alaska Weather Schedule for October

Each day during Alaska Weather (5:30pm, 7 days a week), our local National Weather Service meteorologists share weather updates with a statewide perspective, but they also share brief video “extras” that cover astronomy, aviation and aeronautics, weather, boating safety, navigation and emergency preparedness.
