Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Short term Weakening vertically stacked low is spinning just
west of haida gwaii this afternoon. The low will drift ese and
inland of bc by early Monday morning. Heights will rise over the
gulf on Monday and surface ridging will re-establish itself and
remain in place through Tuesday as another weakening front pushes
into the central gulf by Tuesday night.

A few showers continue this afternoon, mainly along and south of
icy strait. These showers will diminish through the evening hours
as the best forcing shifts into canada. Monday looks to be a dry
day in most areas with only a few isolated to scattered afternoon
showers, mainly over the southern third of the panhandle. Easterly
wave activity will remain to our north but enough moisture and
onshore flow may be present around the NE gulf coast for a shower
or two there as well. Onshore flow in the low levels will promote
stratocumulus and marine stratus especially along the gulf coast.

Afternoon mixing should allow for some breaks in the overcast
however, especially over interior parts of the panhandle. Typical
summer thermal gradient will set up by afternoon and this along
with the westerly pressure gradient will allow for brisk s'lies in
lynn canal and likely a period SCA in cross sound during the late
afternoon.

Deepening onshore push occurs Monday night into Tuesday. Slightly
deeper moisture may allow for a few more showers to occur along
the higher terrain during the afternoon, so kept isolated to
scattered shower mention during this time frame. Still expect a
pretty good thermal gradient to develop especially over N lynn
canal during the afternoon Tuesday so went with SCA level winds
there as well as stronger SW winds in taiya inlet and around
skagway. Elsewhere winds should be a bit weaker than Monday with
the overall pressure gradient weakening. Should be a bit more
cloud cover overall on Tuesday especially over the northern
panhandle but still should be a few breaks in the afternoon.

Models are overall in good agreement. The NAM was used primarily
for any updates.

Long term Wednesday through Sunday ... The upper levels will
continue with a zonal flow pattern over the gulf situated between
a low pressure system spinning over the aleutians and a weakening
mid level low over n'rn british columbia. A surface ridge builds
in over the eastern gulf extending northward over the panhandle
Tuesday night. By mid-week a frontal band is expected to lift
across the gulf from SW to NE eventually shearing apart as it
reaches the eastern gulf. A second shortwave follows in behind on
Thursday possibly reaching the outer coastal areas Friday.

Model consensus remains generally in good agreement with the
pattern aloft and at the surface in the mid-to-long range. Kept
isolated to scattered showers across the panhandle Tuesday through
Thursday. Uncertainty exists with timing of the frontal features
mid-week and how much moisture, if any, reaches SE alaska. Minimal
changes made to the existing forecast. Bumped winds up a bit on
Tuesday in lynn canal as well as in the gulf associated with the
lifting frontal band using GFS guidance. Nudged towards wpc
solution as well reducing pop slightly at the latter end of the
forecast.

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.
