southeast alaska forecast discussion
national weather service juneau ak
450 am akdt Thu may 23 2019

Short term A dry and warm holiday weekend is on tap when we get
there. Thursday starts with a frontal band making landfall this
morning with what seems to be embedded showers. Based on cloud top
temperatures and data from the biorka radar site some of the
showers have stronger support and will likely result in heavier
showers and gusty winds near them as of yet, none have triggered
the lightning detection routines. The front will be spreading in
the the morning and generally through the panhandle by afternoon.

Scattered showers will linger in the onshore flow behind the
frontal band.

The old parent low near kodiak island early Thursday will move
across the gulf weakening then move southeast dissipating by
Friday night west near prince of wales island. The low will
spread isolated to scattered showers along the outer coast Friday
and Friday afternoon.

The ridge starts rebuilding through Friday over the gulf and
looks to hold through the weekend keeping the next weather system
confined to the western gulf and southwestern alaska. The flow
pattern will be generally northwest along the coast with winds
increasing to near 25 kt west of prince of wales island. Clouds
are expected to diminish and highs will rise back to where upper
60s and low 70s could be expected during the weekend.

Long term Saturday through Thursday as of 10 pm Wednesday
models have trended slower with the eastward movement of an
occluded front into the eastern gulf for the weekend into early
next week. Models are showing the upper ridge over the area
holding more strongly into early next week. They diverge beginning
around Mon with where the ridge GOES and whether any shortwaves
get into the area. Given the trend, have slowed the eastward
progression of pops for the weekend and mon. It is possible that
the front will not make it onshore before it dissipates, which
would likely keep much of the main part of the panhandle dry into
mon. Ended up blending in latest wpc to handle pops, with even
more manual cutting back along eastern side of the pop field.

Otherwise, looks like a warmer weekend with more sunshine
expected. This may last into memorial day as well. Temps were not
changed much over the area, except for some minor adjustments due
to local effects. Think inner channels will get well into the 60s
at least, with some 70s possible over the more eastern areas.

Beyond mon, with so much difference between the models, ended up
limiting pops to chance at most. Have noticed a trend toward
maintaining more robust ridging over and just E of the area
though into midweek, which could keep things on the warmer and
drier side if it happens.

Ajk watches warnings advisories
Public... None.

Marine... Small craft advisory for pkz041-042-052.

Small craft advisory due to seas for pkz022-043-051-053.

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.
