Discussion
The 00z model suite initialized well against the 00z surface
analysis and verified well against the 06z surface analysis. Model
spread is limited in the short range and remains reasonable in the
mid and long range.

Tranquil fall pattern continues over northern alaska. Aloft at 500
hpa a longwave trough over the west coast of alaska is currently
being being anchored by a 532 dm low just north of nunivak island.

The upper level low will continue to move south over western
bristol bay while another upper level low near kodiak island moves
east and then north into prince william sound Sunday. A 500 dm
low near the pole will move south along the dateline. A strong
shortwave rotating around the low will approach the northwest
coast of alaska Sunday evening as a weak upper level low over
mckenzie delta moves northeast to near banks island Monday
morning. An area of weak flow aloft will drift over central alaska
through Monday morning before the strong shortwave approaching
the northwest coast on Sunday sweeps into central alaska Monday.

On the surface a 993 mb low just southwest of kodiak island will
continue to move north into southern alaska. A strong front moves
on shore late Saturday night and Sunday and into the central and
eastern interior Monday. This front will be the focal point for
scattered rain showers as front stalls over the central and
eastern interior late Sunday and Monday. A weak front moving
south out of the arctic will approach the northwest coast Sunday
bringing a chance of rain and snow back to the north slope. A
trough rotating around the low near kodiak island will stall over
the western interior and west coast today and will be the focal
point for scattered rain showers.

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.

Hydrology None.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
