Discussion
The models are in decent agreement, particularly in their handling
of the system approaching our northwest arctic coast. Recent model
runs have persuaded us to tweak the advisory level winds (just a
headline) presently in effect for our zone 201 up to a high wind
warning for the portion of the area from icy CAPE west. The models
also agree in weakening the front and diminishing the winds
tonight before the front itself and its associated precipitation
actually reaches the coast. Looks like there won't be much
precipitation in any event. The feature is expected to dissipate
before reaching CAPE halkett and points east, nor will it make it
very far south of CAPE lisburne.

The low aloft near shemya, and the various short waves that it
will be slinging northward, also appear to be pretty handled
well. The timing is consistent through Monday, at least. All of
the models move some precipitation up the coast starting Sunday
night, and none of them have much of the stuff over northern
alaska until Tuesday at the earliest.

The atmosphere over our central interior has stabilized somewhat,
and the most active convection will likely be confined to the
upper tanana valley and the fortymile country, and adjacent
areas of our zones 220 and 226.

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

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
