143 pm akdt Sun mar 26 2017
The 12z model suite initialized well against the 12z surface
analysis and verified well against the 18z surface analysis. Model
spread continues to be minimal in the short and mid range with
only minor timing differences on north bound shortwaves moving
over the alaska range through the upcoming week. Model spread
increases rapidly by the end of the week.
Aloft, at 500 hpa, a longwave trough over central and eastern
alaska will slowly retrograde to the west through the week with
the trough axis moving over the west coast by Wednesday as an
upper level ridge builds over the yukon and the upper level ridge
currently over the eastern bering sea moves west to be located
over the western bering sea by mid week.
A series of shortwave troughs will move rapidly north over the
central and eastern interior this week with the first in a series
of shortwaves moving over the alaska range Monday morning and into|
the northern interior Monday evening. Clouds and winds will
increase over the southern interior Monday afternoon with flurries
or scattered snow showers expected Monday night and Tuesday
morning in these areas. Little or no snow accumulation is expected
with this shortwave. A second and stronger shortwave moves north
over the alaska range and southern interior Wednesday night and
Thursday. A weak low at the surface through 700 hpa develops over
the southern yukon and will enhance snow fall over the fortymile
country as well as the eastern alaska range and central interior.
Snowfall with this system is expected to be around an inch.
Temperatures will continue to slowly rise over the central and
eastern this week. Over fairbanks 850 mb temperatures will rise
from around 13 below Monday to around 6 below Friday. Surface
temperatures will rise from around 25 above Monday to around 35

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. 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.
