northern alaska forecast discussion

Clearing weather is still expected for most of the state the next
couple days, due to a strong area of high pressure moving into
the state. The exception will be the north slope with continued
low ceilings. Many places in our forecast area can expect to see
drying conditions and warming temperatures.
Models have been handling this pattern change with consistency
both run to run and between different models, so confident this
pattern will unfold as expected. Some differences are present,
but all are minor and are not notable at this time.
Aloft... The remnants of the low that has been parked over the
state still exist at 500mb as a short wave trough over western
alaska. This trough will move east tomorrow over the interior
followed quickly by another trough embedded in the overall flow.
Both troughs will be pushing over an incoming 500mb ridge from the
This ridge will make a strong push into the state and become the
main feature for most of the state. An upper level low will move
in from the west into the bering sea Thursday but the strength of
the high pressure will then prevent it from pushing any further
towards the state, so it will stay in the bering sea. The ridge of
high pressure will be the weather driver for most the state at
least until early next week.
central and eastern interior... Weather will finally begin to clear
over the next day or so. Still expecting cloud cover and rain
showers tomorrow during the transition to high pressure, due to|
the short wave troughs mentioned previously. After tomorrow, high
pressure will build into the interior. Drying air from this high
will help create conditions for large diurnal temperature swings,
with high temperatures warming, but low temperatures cooling. This
high pressure will be the dominant weather feature for the rest of
the forecast period.
West coast and western interior... The west coast is still expected
to undergo the transition from low pressure to high pressure over
the next day or so. Some low level cloud cover and fog will linger
as the ridge builds in. A low is still expected to skirt the
coast on Friday, moving in from the south. The ridge of high
pressure will hold it off from pushing inland, so the low will
mainly impact st. Lawrence island and the bering strait. Gusty
winds and rain will be present. Gusty winds may also occur on the
south side of the seward peninsula.
North slope and brooks range... Colder than expected temperatures
were experienced this morning northeast alaska, on the cold side
of the arctic front. The front pushed south over the brooks range,
bringing some cold air with it and also dropping snow levels. We
are not expecting these temperatures to persist, as high pressure
will be pushing the front north again. Expect low ceilings to
continue along the arctic coast.
Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.
Hydrology Due to rainfall received the past few days clear
water rivers across the interior will remain high through the
week. The chena will remain very high into this weekend. Groundwater
issues in the fairbanks area will persist through the weekend.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
