southeast alaska forecast discussion
national weather service juneau ak
209 pm akdt Mon jun 26 2017

Short term Monday night through Tuesday... A high pressure system
is currently located across the central gulf. Isolated showers will
continue across portions of the panhandle through tonight due to the
flow over the coast range into the panhandle combined with westerly
orographic lifting. Showers will increase Tuesday as short waves
spiral around a low pressure system... Located across the central
gulf... Toward the panhandle advecting moisture across the region.

The best chances for rain on Tuesday will occur across the north
central gulf east to near CAPE fairweather. Mostly cloudy skies will
prevail across the region through Tuesday.

Small craft advisories will prevail across northern lynn canal and
cross sound through late tonight.

While the showers over the southern panhandle are expected to
have ended by Tuesday evening, isolated to scattered shower activity
is expected into early Wednesday across the northern panhandle.

Wednesday has a chance of rain building through the day with the
next approaching weather front. There is still a fair bit of
disagreement between models with onset of rain. However rain is
expected to begin along the central outer coast of the panhandle and
in the yakutat area first. Significant winds are not expected with
this weather front. If rain begins during the Wednesday period it
will likely be during the late evening.

Used a combination of the NAM and GFS to handle the Monday night
through Wednesday period. However forecast confidence is average
Thursday due to model disagreement with the fronts arrival.

Long term Thursday through Monday... As of 930 pm sun... Period
begins with upper ridge just E of the aor as an upper trough
approaches the W gulf. Models continue to struggle with this
details regarding the approaching trough and the timing and
strength of short wave troughs ejecting out from the parent
trough. Coming to a consensus on the approaching trough. Given the
large model discrepancies, elected to maintain inherited forecast
with precip chances increasing along the N gulf coast Wed then
spreading into the entire panhandle thu. Timing better precip
chances will improve as systems approach, but for now kept chance
pops across most of the CWA with akz017 having highest chances
late this week. Model solutions diverge more significantly late
this week into the weekend. Ec solution is fastest with a closed
upper low moving across the S gulf N pac. GFS gem have similar,
but slower solutions with ensemble means favoring the slower
progression of this feature. Since model agreement is poor by the
middle of the week, do not favor any solution for next weekend.

Made minimal change to inherited forecast and kept it trended
towards wpc guidance late this week through weekend.

Aviation As of 1pm 21 utc Monday... The ridge of high pressure
over the gulf developed a marine layer of low clouds overnight that
has kept majority of the region under MVFR CIGS and down to ifr over
the outer coast including paya. Showers linger over the southern
half of the panhandle with low skud clouds hanging around the
mountains. However nwly flow over the panhandle is making for large
breaks in the clouds on the lee side of baranof island along with
gravity waves that could create some turbulent conditions southward
over pow island. Expect CIGS to lift some more through the early
evening and showers to decrease but likely will not end completely
since moisture will continue to be fed over the top of the ridge.

Overnight the marine layer will strengthen again with MVFR cigs
likely through the early morning hours of Tuesday.

Ajk watches warnings advisories
Public... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for pkz012-022-041>043.

Small craft advisory due to seas for pkz052.

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.
