Anchorage is on its way to tying an almost 60-year-old weather record. Since January 15th , there has been no measurable snowfall in the city. A 36-day winter dry spell hasn’t happened since 1958 when it didn’t snow from January 21st to February 25th.
National Weather Service meterologist Dave Snider confirmed that Anchorage shouldn’t have any measurable snowfall Friday and will likely tie the record for most winter days without snow at midnight. And he says if it doesn’t snow Saturday, the decades-old record will be broken.
However, Snider says the chance of snow Saturday evening is good, so that mark is less certain.
