northern alaska forecast discussion

Discussion
A vertically stacked 998 mb surface low north of barrow is
expected to move off to the northwest, with weak ridging building
in over the beaufort sea from the east. A weak trough aloft
extends from this low to near CAPE halkett then south to near
anaktuvuk pass and diffuse southward to near mcgrath. This trough
is diffuse and will be weakening further as ridging aloft builds
in from the southeast.

Another low aloft lies over the bering strait. This low aloft
is weakly reflected in a surface low south of saint lawrence
island. The center aloft is splitting, with one center moving
south toward dahl point. A remnant will likely move inland
to be near saint marys Saturday afternoon, then become stationary
before filling Monday morning. Another center will move northwest
toward wrangel island. By 4 pm Saturday, just a trough aloft will
persist along a line from about wrangel island to saint marys and
southeastward. This trough will continue to weaken as a low
(surface and aloft) south of cold bay develops. This low in turn
will move north Sunday and Sunday night to be over our western
interior at 4 pm Monday, likely lending some support to the
thermal low expected to develop over interior alaska.

Fire weather
A warmer and dryer airmass is moving into interior alaska from
the southeast, and a weak thermal low is likely over the eastern
interior on Saturday. Sustained gap winds in the eastern alaska
range zone will likely remain below 30 mph, though minimum rh will
be in the 20s. Conditions appear no worse on Sunday or Monday,
but confidence in that is not great.

Hydrology
No issues (known).

Afg watches warnings advisories
Brisk wind advisory for pkz235.

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.
