Matanuska Glacier Weather
As Reported from Nearby Sutton-Alpine, AK
The Matanuska Glacier weather pattern is different from Anchorage, Wasilla and Palmer, Alaska. While it might be raining heavily in those areas, the weather here is often more fair, if not downright sunny! At Matanuska Glacier we’re bordered by the Chugach Mountains on one side, the Talkeetna Mountains on the other, and weather patterns pushing in from the southwest coastline don’t always make it past our natural blockade. Combined with cool, dry air that often flows from higher elevations from our northeast, down into the Matanuska Valley, further protecting our skies, it’s not uncommon for Matanuska Glacier Weather to be clear and sunny even when there’s rain and snow just an hour away. That said, here’s what’s being reported nearby…
