Aloft at 500 hpa, the long wave trough that has been located over
eastern and central alaska for the last several days continues to
move slowly to the west with its current axis along a galena to
mcgrath line. The axis will continue to move to the west and will
be along a kotzebue to lower yk delta line Wednesday and Thursday
and over the eastern bering sea Friday and Saturday. While the
upper level low moves to the west out of eastern and central
alaska, an upper level ridge builds west out of the yukon into
eastern and central alaska.
A series of shortwaves will move north along the ridge over the
alaska range as well as eastern and central alaska this week giving
rise to periods of light snow, flurries and much warmer
temperatures. The light snow south and east of fairbanks will be
limited to generally less than one inch through Thursday morning
with drying southerly chinook flow off of the alaska range. To the|
north and west of fairbanks the drying chinook effect will be
limited. Expect 1 to 3 inches of snow to fall through Thursday
morning over the central interior west of fairbanks west and the
western interior including mcgrath, bettles and galena.
A strong shortwave will approach the alaska range Thursday and
will set up a moderate chinook event Friday. Gap winds through
the alaska range passes will increase Thursday afternoon and as a
weak mountain wave sets up Friday morning, winds along the north
slopes of the alaska range may approach advisory levels.
The 12z model suite initialized well against the 12 surface
analysis and verified well against the 18z surface analysis. Model
spread remains reasonable in both the short range as well as the
mid range. Model spread increase rapidly by next weekend.
Brisk wind advisory for pkz210-pkz220-pkz240-pkz245.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
