Discussion
Models... For the very short term, around 24 hours, the models
still having the same issues with diverging beyond that. The
divergence is not quite as bad, but it will still have an impact
on conditions that will effect the west coast and northwest arctic
coast. Will primarily use a blend of the GFS and canadian models
again for the short term. The 21 00z solutions did initialize
okay against the 21 06z surface analysis, but the low near the
gulf of anadyr was about 4 mb weaker than the models and the high
over the yukon territory was about 3 mb stronger. Coastal flood
guidance has remained consistent the last few runs and water
levels in norton sound are expected to be a few feet higher than
the storm a month or so ago.

Aloft... At 500 hpa... A 506 dam low 400 nm northwest of point
barrow will move west. A 505 dam low over mackenzie bay will move
southeast in to canada. A 520 dam low over the northeast pacific
has troughing extending north to yakutat that will persist into
Wednesday then moving east. Ridging from a 588 dam high in the
north pacific extends northeast south of the alaska peninsula
over kodiak island to talkeetna to anaktuvuk pass to wainwright,
then northwest. By this evening it will be over the alcan border
to demarcation point then northwest over the arctic. A strong
trough associated with a 505 dam low over the western chukchi sea
will extend southeast over shishmaref to bethel to sand point. By
late this evening the low will be 200 nm west of point lay and
the trough will lie from point lay to ruby to seldovia, and by
Wednesday morning the low is still about 200 nm west of point lay
with the trough extending over point lay to the central brooks
range to tanana to homer. By Wednesday morning the trough will
lie from the low which will be over the arctic plain to bettles to
fairbanks to cordova. The trough will move over the yukon
territory early Thursday. At 850 hpa... Temperatures over the
forecast area will be between -5c and -20c through Friday.

Surface... 969 mb low has moved to the western chukchi sea and the
weather front lies from point lay to koyuk to dillingham. Leeside
troughing has developed north of the brooks and alaska ranges.

High pressure remains over the upper yukon flats, the copper river
basin, and over the yukon territory. The weather front will move
east to lie from CAPE lisburne to tanana to talkeetna. As the
front continues east weak troughing will remain over the interior
with high pressure over the southern yukon territory. The low over
the northwest arctic coast will slowly move north to 100 northwest
of wainwright by Wednesday afternoon at 982 mb with trough
extending east over the arctic coast to a 1002 mb low near
demarcation point. A weak ridge axis will move over the eastern
bering sea this evening, then moves inland and merges with weak
ridging south of the alaska range. A 999 mb low developing in the
north pacific this morning will move to the central bering sea by
Wednesday morning at 978 mb, then over the southwest mainland by
Wednesday evening at 967 mb before moving southeast across the
alaska peninsula into the northeast pacific. The low north of
wainwright will become quasi stationary, then move southeast over
point barrow by Thursday evening, then east to the beaufort sea
Friday night. Strong pressure gradient across the brooks range
will start to relax Tuesday evening. It will tighten back up a
bit as the low moves to the north of the range Friday. Gap winds
in the alaska range will drop off early this afternoon as the
gradient relaxes. The tanana valley jet will continue to blow into
the evening before shutting off. The gusty winds in the upper
yukon river valley will continue through Wednesday before dying
off as the high over the yukon territory moves a bit south.

Arctic coast and brooks range... Blizzard to near blizzard
conditions for most of the area today. Strongest winds will be
from point barrow west with 35 to 45 mph gusting to 70 mph on the
northwest arctic coast. Low ceilings will prevail with some light
snow. Blowing snow reducing visibility to 1 2 mile or less over
much of the arctic. Temperatures slightly warmer. Heavy snow in
parts of the brooks range as well.

West coast and western interior... Blizzard conditions over much of
the area north of shaktoolik today. Near blizzard conditions to
the south. Strong winds today 25 to 45 mph with some areas gusting
to 65 mph. Conditions will improve tonight and tomorrow morning
as the low moves north and the front moves inland. Snowfall today
in the kobuk and noatak valleys will range from 2 to 15 inches
with the heaviest snow north of kiana and north of noatak. Heavy
snow in the northern nulato hills with 4 to 12 inches. The next
system that will move over the southwest mainland will spread
heavy snows over the lower yukon delta with up to a foot of snow
in the area Wednesday.

Central and eastern interior... Increasing clouds today with snow
developing by late afternoon and spreading east through the
evening. Snowfall amounts will be in the 3 to 6 inch range.

Winds will generally be light in the valleys. Gap winds in the
alaska range will diminish in the early afternoon, and the
tanana valley jet will shut off.

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... A storm will move to the
bering strait Saturday and has the potential to produce high surf
along the southern seward peninsula, and the chukchi sea coast
north of CAPE espenberg.

Extended forecast days 4 to 7... Guidance for the mid and extended
periods has been pretty poor, but models still indicate a
significant weather system moving to the west coast Saturday
afternoon. It currently does is not expected to be as strong as
the system moving through the area today, but will bring some
strong winds and heavy snows. There continues to be quite a bit
of uncertainty with what will happen beyond Saturday.

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.
