Discussion
Models in good agreement through 60 hours. Strong upper level low
anchored firmly in the high arctic well north of the arctic
circle. The deep upper level trough over northern alaska will
persist through the beginning of next week.

As the main surface low swings eastward across the arctic coast,
in the high arctic, the gradient will tighten and the winds will
increase along the arctic coast. This should remain fairly strong
through the weekend.

A moderately strong surface low will move northward in the gulf of
alaska by Monday and then spread northward over the central and
eastern interior with scattered snow showers along with the front.

Appears to be scattered snow showers that will accompany the
short wave that moves over the area. It could be a potential for
decent rain shadowing from the alaska range since the upper level
winds will become fairly strong over the central interior on late
Sunday and into Monday.

Areas of fog are affecting many locations on the west coast as
well as locations on the arctic coast.

Afg watches/warnings/advisories
None.

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.
