Synopsis
Aloft...

strong zonal flow across northern alaska will weaken tonight and
tue as a short wave drops south along the west coast of alaska
tonight through Tue night. A ridge will build over northeast
alaska later this week bring a return to warm and dry weather over
the interior.

Surface...

a 989 mb 80 nm northwest of barrow will move to 100 nm north of
barter island as a 996 mb low by 4pm Mon and then continue moving
east and weakening. Strong west winds around this low are causing
high surf along must of west coast and arctic coast of alaska. The
winds will decrease this morning along the west coast, be this
evening along the western arctic coast, and by Tue am along the
eastern arctic coast.

A cold front stretching from this low to deadhorse to bethel will
move rapidly east to eagle to dot lake to talkeetna by 4pm
mon, and to northway to mentasta pass by 4am tue. There is a broad
area of rain along and east of this front, and expect another 0.25
inch of rain from this today. Rain will taper off to scattered
showers west of the front with temperatures cooling. There are
southwest winds 15-25kt along and ahead of the front with
stronger wind gusts closer to the low center over zones 218 206
203 and 204. Winds will drop off west of the front.

A second low south of wrangel island will move to the southern
chukchi sea as a 1008 mb low by 4am tue, and to near nome as a
1010 mb low by 4pm tue. This will bring move rain to the west
coast of alaska late tonight and tue.

There is a potential for scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms across the interior wed.

Discussion
Models initialize well on most fields and show similar solutions
through wed. One exception is that the low near barrow is a bit
deeper than models indicated and thus we are forecasting winds a
few knots stronger than models indicate over the north slope today
and tonight.

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

Fire weather
Rh should remain above 30%. Strong winds across the interior will
decrease this afternoon.

Hydrology
Small stream flood advisories continue today over zones 208 217
210 and 211 due to the 1-2 inches of rain yesterday that followed
rain the previous several days.

Afg watches warnings advisories

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.
