Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 251 PM AKDT Thu Sep 23 2021

SHORT TERM. A gale force low will continue to churn in the Gulf Thursday night into Friday before eventually moving onshore to the west of the region Friday afternoon into evening. As the associated front passes through the panhandle many areas, particularly to the south, will continue to see strong winds and periods of moderate to heavy rainfall through the evening. Observations from those areas have been indicating rainfall amounts near or exceeding a quarter of an inch an hour. Expect that winds and precip will begin to taper off through Friday into Friday night before we have our next "lull" in the active weather Saturday into Saturday night. Through the duration of the event, some areas of the southern panhandle could see rainfall totals around the 3-4 inch range. While we are currently expecting a response on area streams and rivers, the precip should be spread out over a long enough time frame to minimize flooding risks, however will be monitoring the situation very closely. Instability still looks sufficient enough to warrant the mention of thunderstorm potential for offshore and coastal areas from around Cape Suckling to near Cross sound this evening into tonight.

LONG TERM. /Saturday through Wednesday night/ . The extended period continues to be an active period for SE Alaska and the surrounding waters as low pressure systems move through the Gulf and into the panhandle. However, breaks will occur for some areas and it is looking increasingly likely that there could be drier weather, especially through Saturday and Sunday. Rain could return for some locations by the end of Sunday, guidance continues to show that a system may impact parts of the area. However, ensembles have continued to indicate a preference towards a more southerly track for this low. Should this verify, much of the northern panhandle could be spared from much of the associated weather as offshore flow helps filter in drier air from the interior, cutting off a significant portion of the moisture transport. The same cannot be said for southern areas however, and should the current prognostic reasoning continue to hold, it will be a wet start to the work week for many. After this system, ensembles are hinting at yet another system arriving on Wednesday, but growing run to run divergence means that giving details with any degree of confidence is difficult. Alongside the active weather, cooler air will continue to filter into the area at various times, with 850 mb temperatures progged to be below -2C on more than one occasion across much of the area.

AJK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PUBLIC . Strong Wind until 10 PM AKDT this evening for AKZ027-028. Strong Wind until 7 PM AKDT this evening for AKZ025. Strong Wind from Friday morning through Friday afternoon for AKZ018. MARINE . Gale Warning for PKZ036-043-051-052-310. Small Craft Advisory for PKZ012-013-021-022-031>035-041-042-053.
