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.

Discussion
Synopsis...

wet conditions continue for much of the state as stationary low
pressure over bristol bay continues to draw in north pacific
moisture into western and interior alaska. A surface low
developing along a shortwave trough extending southeast of the
primary low will send a significant wave of moisture northward as
it impacts the southwest coast near kodiak island this morning.

This wave will follow an identical path as its predecessors with
many of the same areas from the y-k delta north and eastward
across the brooks range picking up significant rainfall. Alaska
range passes will continue to experience strong but gradually
decreasing winds as the bristol bay low slowly deteriorates into
this weekend when the synoptic pattern finally becomes more
progressive.

North slope...

surface high pressure over the chukchi sea has retreated
westward, allowing an arctic low to exploit a weakness in the
elongated ridge spanning the north slope. Weather effects from
this vertically stacked low will largely remain offshore though a
short frontal boundary may break through the weak high to cause
brief snow showers and low visibility around barrow this morning.

High pressure will build eastward as the low then tracks
northeastward into the far reaches of the canadian arctic
Tuesday. The stalled front running from the bristol bay low
northeastward into the brooks range will generate a lee side
surface low over the mackenzie delta, facilitating the spread of
rain across the arctic plain east of deadhorse into Tuesday as
high pressure regains control.

West coast and western interior...

a strong surface low has developed along a trough extending
southeast from the bristol bay low. A significant surge of
moisture associated with this system will push northward today
causing widespread moderate to locally heavy rainfall. Steady rain
will begin to spread northward from the kuskokwim and lower yukon
valley this morning, reaching galena to bettles this afternoon,
and the western brooks range tonight. Rainfall totals will be
heaviest in the southwestern brooks range where upslope forcing
along a stalled frontal boundary will bring the potential for up
to 2 inches of rain through Tuesday for areas including ambler and
kiana. Up to 1 inch of rain is possible through Tuesday from the
kuskokwim valley to the yukon delta and nulato hills with most
other areas receiving around 0.5 inches.

Central and eastern interior...

mostly dry conditions from the tanana valley to the yukon flats
has been supported by weak ridging over the eastern interior as
well as strong downsloping over the alaska range. A strong
shortwave with significant moisture supported by a north pacific
low will swing northward across the region today. While much of
the rainfall will be shadowed out, higher elevations north of
fairbanks to the upper koyukuk valley may see some brief light
rain this afternoon as the front passes by before stalling over
the brooks range this evening. Rainfall totals in the brooks range
as well as areas of the alaska range could see up to 1.5 inches
of rain through Tuesday. Additionally, this system will amplify
the already strong winds through alaska range passes. Isabel pass
will likely experience winds up to 65 mph tonight with gusty
conditions reaching northward to delta. This is near warning
criteria and a high wind warning may be warranted as events
unfold. Progressively weaker shortwaves will continue to
propagate northward as the bristol bay low slowly deteriorates
through late this week. Rain chances will increase for much of
eastern interior by the mid week as the canadian ridge weakens and
retreats eastward.

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

Fire weather
A surge of moisture associated with a powerful shortwave will
track across the state today with significant wetting rains
expected. The exception to this will be the eastern interior from
the tanana valley to the yukon flats where rainfall chances will
be minimal as a result of strong downsloping and weak high
pressure. Strong wind swill persist through the alaska range
through Tuesday, though the lowest relative humidity values will
be displaced well to the east. A breakdown in the ridge by midweek
may help increase chances for rain across the region as weaker
shortwaves continue to propagate northward.

Hydrology
With many of the same areas expected to be impacted by the latest
round of moderate to heavy rain, expect some rise in river levels
particularly for sources in the southern alaska range and brooks
range (sag river).

Afg watches warnings advisories
Wind advisory for akz223-akz226.

Small craft advisory for pkz210-pkz225.

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.
