northern alaska forecast discussion
national weather service fairbanks ak
401 pm akdt Sat apr 29 2017

Discussion The models remain in good agreement through Tuesday
at least, with mainly light flow aloft over northern alaska. The
old low over the western bering sea will move east to be near
dutch harbor Sunday afternoon, where it will become nearly
stationary and fill through Monday afternoon. The weather front
associated with this low passed over dutch harbor this morning
without much excitement. It will continue east into the gulf of
alaska, moving more slowly northward, to be over kodiak island and
northern bristol bay around noon Sunday. The system is vertically
stacked. By noon on Sunday, the low aloft will have moved into
positron to give southeast interior alaska a bit of a chinook off
the alaska range. Winds are expected to remain below advisory
levels though.

High pressure over the beaufort sea will continue to prevail
over our arctic coast and northwest alaska.

We have already seen some summery convective showers in the
interior and west coast, and thunderstorms are a remote
possibility. The atmosphere is just barely unstable enough over
eagle and the fortymile country this evening. It may be so again
Sunday afternoon, from zone 224 as far west as zone 215. There's
very little moisture available, though.

Fire weather
No issues.

Afg watches/warnings/advisories
None.

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.
