Discussion
Very warm and dry conditions across the interior with
temperatures approaching near record values over the southeastern
interior Sunday and Monday. Fire weather will be of concern over
the next couple of days the combination of hot temperatures, low
minimum rh values, and winds will flirt with red flag criteria
from delta junction south along the eastern alaska range. The
latest suite of model solutions from 21 12z are in good agreement
through late Tuesday. After Tuesday, differences in how the
models resolve the features in the arctic and the upper low that
will be south of the alaska peninsula.

Aloft... At 500 mb, a 585 dam ridge of high pressure continues to
build north over mainland alaska. Associated 850 mb temperatures
within this ridge will be around +10c over the arctic coast and
+15c to +18c over the eastern interior this evening with these
warm temperatures persisting into Tuesday. This upper level ridge
will gradually shift east with its ridge axis being located along
the alcan border by late Sunday evening. Meanwhile, a 552 dam low
over the western bering sea will move east to be over the
pribilofs by Sunday evening with several weak shortwaves moving
north over southwest alaska. This broad low will rotate south to
be south of the alaska peninsula Monday evening and will become
quasi- stationary with broad cyclonic flow continuing over western
alaska. Over the arctic, progressive westerly flow will bring
several disturbances north of the arctic coast through Tuesday.

The upper level ridge over the interior extending north over the
arctic coast will deflect and keep any system well to the north of
the coast until at least late Tuesday.

Eastern and central interior... Very warm and above normal
temperatures will continue across the area into Tuesday. Sunday
will be the warmest with forecast high temperatures in the 80s.

Some locations in the tanana valley and yukon flats may even see
readings in the upper 80s (near-record high temperatures). The
very temperatures will continue into Monday with high temperatures
a few degrees cooler, but still in the 80s. The exception will be
over the yukon flats where highs will remain in the upper 80s. As
the ridge shifts east, high temperatures will slowly cool by a
degree or two Tuesday and Wednesday. Low end gap winds of 15 to 25
mph will develop near eastern alaska range passes through the day
Sunday and persist into Monday. Near red flag conditions are
possible south of delta junction into the eastern alaska range
Sunday and Monday; however winds may not meet the criteria Sunday
when the driest and hottest conditions are expected. It's more
probable for Monday. May see a few isolated are possible late
Sunday afternoon and evening over the central interior.

West coast and western interior... High pressure will persist over
the area through Sunday and then will shift east on Monday. The
warmest temperatures will be found inland over interior locations
Sunday and Monday with the warmest day being on Monday with
widespread highs in the mid to upper 70s. As an upper level low
and trough approach the west coast Sunday and Monday, chances for
precipitation will increase. Isolated thunderstorms and showers
are possible through this evening as well as the afternoon and
evenings Sunday and Monday over most of the western interior.

North slope and brooks range... Very warm on the eastern arctic
coast over the next couple of days where temperatures will climb
into the upper 60s to around 70 with offshore flow. Over the
western arctic coast, cooler temperatures with areas of fog
possible along the immediate coast. Showers possible over the
brooks range and western north slope tonight with isolated
thunderstorms possible over the central brooks range tonight. More
thunderstorm activity tomorrow over the brooks range and over the
coastal plains. Winds south to southwest over most of the area at
5 to 15 mph.

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

Fire weather Very warm and fairly dry conditions will persist
into next week for interior alaska. High pressure has built in
over the area with a warm ridge aloft rotating over the area. Some
isolated to scattered showers west of tanana with a slight chance
of thunderstorms. Fire weather concerns will be the greatest
tomorrow evening and Monday over the northern foothills of the
eastern alaska range especially from delta junction south.

Increasing winds in this area tomorrow evening may not exceed the
red flag criteria to coincide with the driest and warmest
conditions. It's more likely to occur Monday with both winds and
temperatures, but relative humidity values will be marginal.

Although warm and dry conditions are anticipated elsewhere in the
central and eastern interior, winds will remain light and variable
and not meet red flag criteria. For the latest information go to

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.
