What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

northern alaska forecast discussion
national weather service fairbanks ak

Discussion
Primary forecast concern for northern alaska remains the
potential for heavy showers and periods of heavy rain that is
expected to fall in many of the central interior river basins and
the eastern alaska range through Friday morning.

Heavy rain is expected through Friday in the upper chena, salcha,
goodpaster, johnson, robertson, and delta river basins. 1 to 2
inches of rain is expected in most of these areas with higher
amounts possible with eastern alaska range. With the holiday
weekend fast approaching rivers will be running near bankfull in
many areas in the central interior and eastern alaska range. A
special weather statement has been issued to provide more details.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop Wednesday
afternoon and continue into Wednesday night along a broad trough
extending from near old crow and eagle west to fairbanks as well
as galena, tanana and southwest to mcgrath. Upper level winds
remain weak and precipitable water available in the atmosphere
will increase again to levels well above normal for late may.

Thunderstorms that develop will move slow, and are likely to
produce heavy rain and small hail.

The arctic remains quiet with low stratus ceilings, fog and snow
showers. Easterly winds will continue to be gusty through the week
as troughs continue to move into the interior and strong high
pressure near 80n remains in place. Similar conditions are
expected to continue through the end of the week.

A persistent trough over the west coast will continue to produce
periods of clouds and isolated showers, while inland areas will
see some isolated thunderstorms. A weak low will form over the
southern chukchi sea Thursday and will increase coastal winds
through kotzebue sound and will produce isolated rain and snow
showers over kotzebue sound and the western brooks range.

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.

Fire weather
An active pattern for thunderstorms will continue today and
Thursday over much of the interior, however high cwr values are
expected across the area especially to the east of fairbanks.

Relative humidity values are expected to remain above 35 percent
excellent overnight recovery will continue. Thermal trough will
be north of the tanana valley the remainder of the week. Some
drying in the upper yukon flats and fortymile country over the
weekend. Winds generally less than 15 mph, except near the alaska
range winds south to 25 mph. For the latest fire weather

GOES Local Image of Alaska    EDIT
NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
