Short term Wednesday night through Friday night... A high
pressure system over the eastern gulf will move inland tonight
and exit the region. A low pressure system developing across the
northeast pacific will move north into the southwest gulf Thursday
night. A front associated with the low pressure system will move
into the eastern gulf Thursday night. Showers are likely across
the northern portions of the panhandle tonight. Rain chances will
increase on Thursday across most of the panhandle as the low
pressure system advances northward and the frontal boundary moves
into the eastern gulf. Temperature values Thursday will continue
similar to temperatures which occurred over the past few days
across southeast alaska. Cloudy to mostly cloudy skies will
prevail across the region with a few breaks occurring across the
southern areas of the panhandle tonight and Thursday.
Into Fri another short wave will be riding north along the front
bringing another round of rain to most of the panhandle. Timing has
most of the rain coming for Fri night. This feature is also bringing
some wind into the area but nothing more then 15 to 20 mph and
mostly for the southern panhandle and outer coast with 25 kt winds
for the near coastal waters of the gulf. Increased winds in these
areas as a result. GFS and NAM were main models of choice for the
short range period.|
Long term Saturday through Tuesday... As of 1030 pm tues... We
continue to see an upper level ridge with an associated high
pressure at the surface progress east out of the area during the
early weekend timeframe. Precipitation chances will increase as
we move into the weekend, which is in line with the approach of a
surface front, the increasing onshore flow, and plentiful moisture
available. Winds were increased for the post-frontal time period
for northern lynn canal late Sunday. Additional shortwaves moving
out of the parent upper level low situated over the gulf will
impact the area Sunday through the rest of the time period of
interest and will continue the likely pops trend, with a possible
drier period beginning Tuesday. We'll continue to monitor
developments for next week.
We strengthened Friday's front by nudging to the nam GFS and made
minor adjustments to the period beyond with wpc guidance. But
overall, few changes were needed. Overall confidence is average.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
