northern alaska forecast discussion
national weather service fairbanks ak
733 am akst Mon feb 19 2018

Synopsis
Aloft...

a high amplitude long wave ridge over alaska and trough over the
bering and NW pacific will become more zonal through the week as
a series of very strong short wave troughs move NE across the
bering sea and alaska the next several days. This will keep
northern alaska in a warm, wet and windy pattern the next several
days.

Surface...

a 990 mb low west of wrangel island will drift northwest. A front
from this low to prudhoe bay to northway will move to the alcan
border by 3pm today. Light snow with this feature will end west of
the front.

A 960 mb low in the central bering sea will move to CAPE navarin
as a 964 mb low by 3pm mon, to 200 nm northwest of CAPE lisburne
as a 988 mb low by 3pm tue, and to 300 nm northwest of barrow as a
999 mb low by 3pm wed. The front with this low will move along the
west coast today, to barrow to mcgrath by 3am tue, and to the
alcan border by 3am tue. Expect 4-8 inches of snow with this along
the west coast and western interior today, and 1-2 inches with it
over the eastern interior tue. SE gales ahead of the front are
causing blizzards along the coast today through tue.

The poison tale following the low center will move over the west
coast tonight causing south winds gusting 50-90 mph with the
highest winds over the western capes.

A third low will move north into the southern bering sea tue
night and to the central bering sea on wed.

Discussion
Models initialize well aloft. At the surface the low just NW of
wrangel island is about 4 mb deeper than models at 06z, and the
surface high over the copper river basin is about 4 mb stronger.

Main low in the central bering appears to be well initialized at
06z. Will see bit stronger winds through alaska range passes
today than models shows as a result of the high pressure being
stronger than models indicate.

Models generally in agreement through 3am wed, then the GFS moves
the next bering sea low northeast faster than the ecmf and nam.

At this point favor the slower NAM ecmf solutions for wed. Models
diverge on strength and timing of short waves after wed, but one
certainty is that the progressive westerly flow pattern will
continue through the week.

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.
