northern alaska forecast discussion

100 am akdt Sat may 27 2017

Discussion
The 00z model suite initialized well against the 00z surface
analysis and verified well against the 06z surface analysis. Model
spread remains low in both the short range as well as the mid
range. Model spread increases considerably by the middle of next
week.

Aloft at 500 hpa, a ridge over the western bering sea will
continue to drift to the east as a long wave trough moves east out
of the eastern bering sea and reestablishes itself over western
alaska. A ridge down stream of the long wave trough over northern
british columbia and the southern yukon will continue to build
north and west and will build over eastern alaska through Monday.

Several weak shortwaves will migrate north along the eastern
portion of the longwave trough over western alaska and will be the
focal point for scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms
Saturday and Sunday. Best chances for isolated thunderstorms will
occur on Saturday over the nulato hills.

The upper atmosphere will warm over the central and eastern
interior as the upper level ridge builds north west and will limit
thunderstorm activity to western and central interior over the
weekend and to the western interior next week. Temperatures will
rise next week with some locations in the central interior pushing
into the middle 70s. Winds will likely become gusty as the thermal
trough strengthens over the central interior early next week. See
fire weather discussion for increasing fire weather concerns next
week.

Fire weather
A gradual rise in temperatures and drying trend is expected over
the central and eastern interior Saturday and Sunday and will
continue into the middle of next week. Min rh values will drop
into the 20s over the much of the central and eastern interior
both Saturday and Sunday however neither temperature criteria nor
wind criteria are expected to met criteria through Monday. As the
upper level ridge discussed above builds over the eastern and
eventually the central interior temperature criteria will be
approached by the middle of next week in the yukon flats and
middle tanana valley. Wind criteria may be locally met in and near
alaska range passes and northern foothills Tuesday and Wednesday
as the thermal trough strengthens over the central interior and
surface ridging builds over the south central portion of the
state.

Hydrology
No known issues at this time.

Afg watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
