544 am akdt Wed sep 20 2017

Short term through Thursday night rather quiet morning across
the panhandle with mostly clear skies for many areas. Radiational
fog has developed in a few areas of the inner channels overnight
with the areas around frederick sound seeing the most widespread
fog based on satellite imagery. Visibilities have been as low as
a quarter mile in some of these locations, but it has not been
persistent enough for a dense fog advisory at this time. This fog
should burn off by mid day at the latest.

Short range forecast looks dry for most areas through Thursday as
the ridge in the gulf slowly drifts to the east. Wed is expected
to be the sunniest day with continuing offshore flow. Thu is
looking increasingly cloudy as clouds from the next front start to
spread over the area. The result is that Wed is looking to be the
warmest of the two days. Guidance is suggesting widespread 60s for
highs Wed so bumped up temps a few degrees. Winds will be rather
light with most areas seeing 20 kt or less of wind through thu.

Thu night becomes interesting as a new front enters the area from
the west. Winds in the gulf will be switching around to the SE and
increasing to 25 kt Thu afternoon into Thu night. The chance of
rain will also be increasing with yakutat possibly seeing rain as
early as Thu afternoon while the rest of the panhandle will see
the rain arrive Thu night. Guidance on this system is fairly good
with not much divergence between models at this time. Mainly used
some NAM for updates which included increasing winds in the gulf
to 25 kt as the front moves through.

Long term Friday to Tuesday upper level ridge axis will
shift east of the panhandle during the day Friday, and the rest
of the ridge will slowly move eastward to the western CONUS into
western canada region by the following mid week. Which means any
protection from the rain moving into the western gulf at the end
of the week is ending as well. Once the onshore flow and rains
begin early Friday for southeast alaska panhandle, rain is
expected for the remainder of the forecast week.

First front spreads in late Thursday night early Friday with a
good burst of rain. A trailing wave lifting across the central
and southern panhandle is expected late Friday night. Following
that, out of the central pacific, is another developing system at
the head of what may be the start of an atmospheric river aimed
towards haida gwaii by Sunday. Significant amounts of rainfall
could be expected for the southern zones Saturday night into
Sunday. The present wind forecast for the event is around 25 kt,
but this could be bumped up if the low continues to develop.

Friday's forecast was adjusted slightly with influence from the
nam and ECMWF while the later portions were wpc and some ecmwf.

May see the track on this shift more by Wednesday afternoon if the
new GFS runs are leading the change in pattern, as the gfs
solution may have more of the energy concentrated over the
southeast portion of the gulf.

Public... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for pkz041.

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.
