southeast alaska forecast discussion
national weather service juneau ak
254 pm akdt Tue jun 25 2019

Short term High pressure now firmly entrenched over the region
has brought mostly sunny skies to most locations through the
panhandle. A marine layer over the gulf is bringing low ceilings
into the northwest from elfin cove to west of icy bay. Whether or
not this marine layer breaks up or how far inland it will extend
was the forecast challenge for today and should be for the next
few days. In the near term, keeping at least low clouds in the
forecast for coastal areas but could also see some patchy fog as
far east as gustavus tonight. Most locations not affected by the
clouds should see a fairly dramatic diurnal swing in temperatures
in the short term. High temps will trend warmer through at least
Thursday when some locations, particularly in the northeast portions
of the forecast area, could get to 80. For almost all locations,
went on the high side of guidance as several spots yesterday and
today already exceeded most of the model spread. Warmer temperatures
could also lead to some isolated convection on Thursday, but for now
looks restricted to mainly the southeast panhandle. These
temperatures for the next couple of days as will need to
consistently monitor the extent the marine layer protrudes into the
inner channels. If the sky forecast busts and the marine layer
creeps up to the mainland, could easily bust some high temp
forecasts by double digits. For now, confidence is medium that the
forecast will hold, but will refer to it as optimistic.

Winds do not look to be an issue for the inner channels with again
the exception being cross sound where the contrasting land water
temps will create SCA conditions during the afternoons. A
tightening pressure gradient will also cause advisory level winds
to coastal zone 41 Wednesday afternoon.

Long term Anomalous high latitude blocking pattern will
continue through late week. Large upper ridge will extend
northward through the interior of alaska before gradually
flattening somewhat by early next week. Northeasterly mid level
flow around the upper ridge along with strong heating over nw
canada will induce a low level thermal trough over the panhandle
Thursday into Friday. Low level flow will be more northeasterly
and northerly through the inside waters Thursday and Friday which
is typically a very warm pattern for SE alaska due to increased
compressional warming and reduced sea breezes. Some guidance is
indicating high temperatures by Friday will reach well into the
80s over at least the northern portion of SE alaska. Not quite
ready to go that high yet, but did give temperatures a nudge
upward and fully expect most areas to be well into the 70s to near
80 especially on Friday.

Precipitation chances will be minimal through the early part of
the weekend with the offshore flow expected. Some weak shortwave
energy does try to drop southward into the panhandle Thursday
evening and with strong daytime heating, would not be surprised to
see a few isolated showers or thunderstorms over the far
southeast part of the panhandle near the thermal trough.

Ensembles are quite spread with regards to the eventual breakdown
of the blocking pattern early next week. It does appear that at
least some flattening of the upper ridge will occur by Sunday
which will allow some more moisture, perhaps mainly in the way of
marine layer clouds into the panhandle. Thus expect a general
cooling trend with more cloud cover and more coverage of afternoon
showers as we head into early next week.

Public... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for pkz022-041.
