Discussion
The 12z models suite initialized well against the 12z surface
analysis and verified well against the 18z surface analysis. Model
spread in both the short range and the mid range remains very
reasonable. Model spread increases rapidly in the long range.

Aloft at 500 hpa, a long wave trough currently centered over
central alaska will slowly move to the west to be centered over
western alaska Wednesday. A ridge builds over western canada today
and Tuesday and will push further west over the yukon by
Wednesday. Southerly flow strengthens at 500 hpa over a large
portion of central and eastern alaska with southeast flow at 700
hpa increasing in strength over the same areas. Strong easterly
winds continue below 850 hpa down to the surface over the same
areas and will continue through Tuesday morning. Winter weather
advisories for blowing snow over highway summits continue for
much of the central and eastern interior north of fairbanks for
tonight and into Tuesday morning as the gradient continues to
increase. Wind gusts in the 20s and 30s are noted over highway
summits over the interior this afternoon with gusts to around 40
mph expected tonight before the gradient relaxes Tuesday
afternoon.

Moisture continues to move north and northwest into the eastern
and central interior and will increase tonight as a shortwave
rotating around the upper level low over south central alaska
moves over the area. Light snow or flurries are expected over a
large area of the central and eastern interior beginning tonight
and continuing into Tuesday. Generally less than one inch is
expected. A stronger shortwave moves over the southern interior
Wednesday night and Thursday with another round of snow expected
over the central and western interior. 1 to 2 inches of snow is
possible with this system.

Low ceilings, fog and flurries are noted over portions of the
north slope with similar conditions expected to continue tonight
and Tuesday.

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.
