Discussion
Synopsis... Will be very quiet across the forecast area the next
few days with the exception of the forest fires and possible smoke
issues. A weather front on the arctic coast will be pulling out
to the east this evening. High pressure will continue to build
over the interior of alaska. A weather front will brush the west
coast with some isolated showers the next couple days.

Temperatures will be on the rise with drier conditions, but the
good thing is not much wind to speak of through the week, and
little if any thunderstorm activity.

Models... 25 12z solutions are in good agreement into the midrange
before some timing issues show up, so will use a blend of the
solutions for the core of the forecast today. The solutions did
initialized well against the 25 15z surface analysis. Convective
indicies are not impressive at all, so very little activity if any
expected.

Aloft... At 500 hpa... A 537 dam low near banks island will persist
over the island, with a shortwave swinging south around over the
eastern arctic coast Thursday morning. A 538 dam low over the
central bering sea near the dateline will slowly move northwest to
be over the northern kamchatka peninsula by Thursday afternoon,
then merges with a 533 dam low that will move over the
southwestern bering sea. Ridging extends from a high in the
western pacific over kodiak island to point hope, then northwest
to a high near the new siberian islands today. Ridging will
continue to build north over mainland alaska with a 580 dam high
over kodiak island Wednesday afternoon, and over cook inlet
Thursday afternoon. At 850 hpa... 0c isotherm lies over the
northeast corner of the state this afternoon and will slowly pull
out to the northeast by Wednesday afternoon. Temperatures over the
remainder of the area will continue to warm as the +10c isotherm
moves from over the north slopes of the alaska range to the south
slopes of the brooks range by Thursday morning. The +10c isotherm
will be pushed out of the lower yukon delta as a front moves to
the west coast early Friday morning.

Surface... Thermal trough lies from eagle to fairbanks to mcgrath
and will not be moving much the next couple days. 1012 mb low will
persist over banks island. High pressure over the western arctic
will move southeast with the 1028 mb high near point barrow moving
to the eastern arctic coast tonight, to mackenzie bay by
Wednesday afternoon. High pressure will persist over the western
interior. A 996 mb low in the central bering sea will slowly move
northwest.

Arctic coast and brooks range... Some stratus over the coast and
along the north slopes of the brooks range will be moving out
through the evening. Partly cloudy skies the next couple days with
some patchy fog. Temperatures will be warming and with winds
swinging around to east to southeast. Winds generally less than 15
mph.

West coast and western interior... Quiet, but the low in the
bering sea will be spinning some decaying fronts into the area
that will bring some showers to the lower yukon delta, st lawrence
island, and possibly the bering strait. Partly cloudy to mostly
sunny inland with mostly cloudy conditions in the lower yukon
delta and over teh coastal areas. Temperatures warming the next
couple days, but will cool in the lower yukon delta starting
Friday. Winds generally offshore along the coast less than 15 mph,
while inland winds light and variable.

Central and eastern interior... Mostly cloudy with showers this
evening. Most thunderstorm activity to the east of fairbanks.

Areas of smoke. Some patchy fog Monday morning across the area.

Winds generally light and variable to west at 10 mph.

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

Fire weather Near red flag conditions for most of the area as
temperatures will continue to warm with highs in the interior
rising into the 70s to mid 80s for much of the area. Relative
humidity values falling into the teens to lower 20s percent range
for a few areas, but generally range between 25 and 35 percent
during the afternoons. Fair to good overnight recovery. Very
limited to no thunderstorm activity is expected the next couple
days. Winds will generally be light and variable across the area
with some locally seeing north and northeast winds to 10 mph.

Hydrology Glacially fed rivers continue to rise slowly with
the melting level at 9000 feet or above. The remainder of the
rivers and streams will be slowly falling.

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.
