Discussion
A generally unsettled weather pattern is expected for the west
coast and the western interior this week while the weather will
be relatively quiet through the workweek elsewhere. The models
are in generally good agreement with the overall synoptic scale
pattern out through the end of the week; however, they differ in
the exact track, timing and strength of synoptic scale features
next weekend and beyond with large differences in the time, track
and strength of a strong low pressure system expected to move
into the central bering sea next weekend.

Aloft at 500 mb, a weak upper level low moving west over the
northern interior continues to be absorbed by an upper level low
moving southeast off of the chukotsk peninsula over the bering
strait and kotzebue sound Wednesday the western brooks range
Wednesday evening and over the central brooks range an central
interior Thursday. An upper level ridge builds north and east into
the eastern bering sea Wednesday and Thursday.

On the surface a 1033 mb high pressure system 350 nm north of
demarcation point will continue to move south and east over the
northern yukon through Thursday. A surface reflection of the upper
level low moving east southeast out of the chuktosk peninsula will
develop over kotzebue sound Wednesday morning and will continue to
deepen to 1012 mb as the low moves east along the southern brooks
range Wednesday and Thursday. Widespread rain will move into the
seward peninsula and west coast Wednesday and into the western
interior and western brooks range Wednesday evening and Thursday.

Rain moves into the central brooks range as well as the central
interior and central alaska range Thursday as surface high
pressure moves south and east out of the beaufort sea into the
northwest territories late Wednesday and Thursday.

Computer models continue to indicate a stormy weekend over the
central and eastern bering sea as well as the west coast of
alaska with the exact details on the track, and strength of a
strong low pressure system forecast to move into the central or
eastern bering sea not being handled well yet at this point.

Continue to monitor
snow levels in the 4 kft to 5 kft range both in the brooks range
and alaska range will lower through the week with minor snow
accumulations indicated over atigun pass by the end of the week
and snow level expected to remain above pass level in the alaska
range.

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... As a low pressure system
moves through the bering strait and over the seward peninsula
Wednesday and Thursday expect 25 to 35 mph on shore winds to
produce elevated water levels along the yukon delta coast late
Wednesday and Thursday. The duration and strength of the winds
combined with relatively short fetch will limit water levels with
only minor beach erosion expected.

Hydrology 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.
