Marine Weather and Tides
Kivalina, AK

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion
Aloft, at 500 mb, a 529 dam low near nunivak island will drift to
the south on Monday and become absorbed in the long wave trough
south of kodiak on Tuesday. Several shortwaves associated with a
low in the western gulf of alaska will move across the interior
through Wednesday. The long wave trough will weaken slowly
through middle of this week, then deepen again through the second
half of this week. Each of the short waves will bring a band of
showers and isolated thunderstorms to the interior through
Wednesday.

Surface... High pressure will persist over the arctic with a 1029 mb center
400 nm N of point barrow, and a broad area of low pressure will
persist over mainland alaska. A low moving N into interior alaska
will tighten the pressure gradient over the eastern arctic coast
tonight. A 984 mb low will track across the aleutians late Monday
into Tuesday.

Central and eastern interior... Shortwave moving through the middle
tanana valley this morning is producing a decent amount of showers
for the fairbanks area. Expecting 0.15 to 0.30 inches of rain
through 6am this morning. The showers will slowly push to the
north acrss the yukon flats this morning. The thermal trough
along with shortwaves aloft will continue to be the focus for
scattered to numerous showers and a slight chance of isolated
thunderstorms through Wednesday for the interior. Temperatures
will remain near normal for much of the area through the week.

West coast and western interior: shortwaves moving up from the
gulf of alaska will keep the southern west coast in a showery
regime. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible
from galena south through Tuesday.

North slope and brooks range: 1028 mb high north of the arctic
coast of alaska will persist through Mon then weaken tue. This
will cause east winds 25-30 kt along the arctic coast to persist
through tue. This will also cause areas of stratus and fog from
barrow east through tue.

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

Fire weather...

interior... Shortwave moving through the middle tanana valley this
morning is producing a decent amount of showers for the fairbanks
area. Expecting 0.15 to 0.30 inches of rain with local amounts
over 0.40 inches through 6am this morning. The showers will slowly
push to the north across the yukon flats this morning. The
thermal trough along with shortwaves aloft will continue to be the
focus for scattered to numerous showers through Wednesday for the
interior. A better chance for isolated thunderstorms will be on
Tuesday. Portions of the eastern alaska range and the forty mile
country could see heavy amounts of rain Tuesday into Wednesday.

Rh values are higher this morning due to the showers across
the middle tanana valley. Minimum rh values 30 to 40 percent
Monday afternoon where there were no showers. Higher relative
humidities on Tuesday due to the more showers expected.

Winds generally less than 15 mph through Wednesday.

For the west coast... Wet and cool conditions will prevail for most of the
west coast and western interior for the next few days as areas
of low pressure persist. There will be enough instability and daytime
heating to cause isolated thunderstorms in zone 227 Monday and Tuesday.

Cool and wet conditions through mid week.

Hydrology...

no reports of problems at this time. Portions of the eastern alaska
range and the forty mile country could see heavy amounts of rain
Tuesday into Wednesday. For the latest breakup information go to

GOES Local Image of Alaska    EDIT
NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
