Discussion
Models are fairly consistent in terms of synoptic features with
the exception of the 500h level in the arctic. Upper level ridge
over the state reaching all the way to the north pole will persist
through probably around Monday. Upper level low in the central
bering sea will move eastward to about dutch harbor by sun
afternoon.

Thermal trough from southeast alaska will continue to provide
sufficient instability along with an upper level short wave moving
north from the gulf of alaska to produce isolated showers over the
area through at least the middle part of next week.

Areas of stratus and fog will continue to move across the arctic
coast from barrow west. East of barrow the stratus is shrinking
quite rapidly.

Winds will pick up a little in the alaska range beginning Sat as
southerly flow increases slightly. Winds should remain below
advisory level though.

Fire weather With moist airmass over much of the interior,
expect that rh values will continue to be for the most apart above
30 percent. Winds will serve to dry out the area a little though
but do not expect any advisories within the next 48 hours.

Afg watches/warnings/advisories
None.

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.
