southeast alaska forecast discussion
national weather service juneau ak
542 am akdt Sat may 27 2017

Synopsis A ridge of high pressure persists over the eastern
gulf and panhandle through Sunday. A weather front will move
north across the central gulf on Saturday.

Short term Saturday through Sunday a warm up is in store for
southeast alaska today and tomorrow. A ridge of high pressure over
the eastern gulf and panhandle will keep significant weather out
of the forecast in the short term. Some patches of fog are
possible early this morning with fog currently present near
klawock. Today brings a warm up with partly cloudy and sunny skies
present for most of the panhandle. Significant winds are not
expected today or tomorrow and winds will be strongest during the
afternoon hours due to thermal enhancement (sea-breezes).

Overnight temperatures will vary greatly from afternoon highs due
to a lack of overnight cloud cover and some temperatures in the
low 30s are possible. Tomorrow brings similar conditions to the
panhandle. However, temperatures warm further from today with
highs in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Over the central gulf a front moves northward today. Most of the
rain associated with the front stays over the gulf. The only
exception is a slight chance of rain for the yakutat area tonight
into tomorrow. However models have trended to decrease the chance
of rain for the area.

Not many significant changes in the short term. Biggest changes
were an upward nudge in temperatures tomorrow with 850mb
temperatures around 10c present over the majority of the
panhandle. Primarily used the NAM for guidance with some input
from namnest to handle winds along the inner channels.

Long term Sunday night through Saturday upper ridge just E of
the area will shift slowly E through the end of the week. Upper
trof low will shift gradually E into the epac through the end of
the week as well. This should increase threat for precip over the
area with time, but models differ in individual shortwave features
which makes timing them difficult at this point. Left in previous
forecast which has a gradual eastward shift of systems toward the
area. Forecast confidence is on low side day to day though due to
the differences mentioned. That being said, does not look like any
strong systems will affect the area through the end of the week,
so impacts will not be significant except for possible SCA level
winds from time to time.

Ajk watches warnings advisories
Public... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for pkz052.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
