Discussion
Aloft at 500 hpa, an upper level ridge will linger over the
central bering sea through Saturday and a cold longwave trough
continues over central and eastern alaska. Shortwave troughs
continue to drop south and east out of the high arctic along the
downstream side of the upper level ridge into and reinforcing the
longwave trough over central and eastern alaska.

Surface...

a weak front will move east over the north slope tonight and
Thursday. A ridge of high pressure will persist over mainland
alaska through Saturday.

North slope... Weather over most northern alaska continues to be
quiet with only brief periods of snow and blowing snow and low
visibility over the north slope as a series of shortwaves pass
over the area through Friday.

Interior...

light snow or flurries will continue along a trough of low
pressure that extends north into the southeast interior from a 999
mb low pressure in the northeast gulf of alaska tonight.

Colder than normal temperatures to continue over northern alaska
through the weekend. 850 mb temperatures over the central and
eastern interior will continue in the 15 to 20 below range through
the weekend before a slow warm up begins next week. Surface
temperatures will continue to drop into the teens below over the
central and eastern interior through the weekend with high
temperatures in the single digits and teens.

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.
