Clouds drift above the peak of Slaughter Ridge and Kenai Lake on Saturday, July 1, 2017 near Cooper Landing, Alaska. Southcentral Alaska so far has had a cool, wet summer, and may see below-normal temperatures with above-normal precipitation over the next eight to 14 days, according to the U.S. Climate Prediction Center. Sunday was rainy on the central peninsula, with temperatures hovering in the mid-50s. However, the sun is predicted to make a steadier appearance for the Fourth of July week, with temperatures rising to the low 60s by Tuesday and some sunshine, according to a Special Weather Statement from the National Weather Service. “The warm and mostly dry weather pattern looks like it will hold through at least the end of the week,” the announcement states. “There may still be some afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms forming on area mountains, but sunshine will be abundant for the valleys.” (Photo by Elizabeth Earl/Peninsula Clarion)
