Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 534 AM AKDT Thu Oct 28 2021

SHORT TERM. / Thru Friday night / Onshore flow Thursday will keep scattered to widespread shower activity ongoing throughout the panhandle. A trough aloft will move towards Southeast Alaska and onshore Thursday night, while a secondary trailing feature will move inland early Friday. After the early Friday trough, a break in the weather is anticipated, as a complex and strong low 970s Mb pressure center low tracks north toward Kodiak Island. The associated frontal band for the strong low is expected to stall over the central gulf Friday into Saturday.

One thing to watch today is that isolated Thunderstorms near the coast as instability behind the through reaches the panhandle and gets assistance to enhance the lift by orographic means. Any activity should be short-lived and stay near the outer coastal part of the panhandle.

A warm front will graze the northern panhandle and move across the Northeast Gulf Coast area through Friday night, and the rains from this will be ending early Saturday. The remainder of the panhandle, especially the southern panhandle, will start drying out due to a ridge building into the region from the east.

Expect that warming aloft will start to move northward over Southeast Alaska starting late Friday and will continue for a couple of days. Forecast confidence is good into the weekend.

LONG TERM. /Sat through Thu as of 10 pm Wed/ Warm dry start to the extended period is still in the cards before we start trending wetter into the middle of next week. The upper level pattern has not changed all that much from yesterday with a strong upper ridge over the panhandle and Western Canada to start the long range period out. This ridge gradually shifts east into mid next week allowing some troughs from the S to sneak into the area. By later next week the panhandle will be stuck in the southerly flow between the ridge in Canada and the trough over the Bering Sea.

The forecast for the early part of the long range has not changed. We are still looking at a period of dry and warmer weather as southerly flow pushes a warmer air mass into the area. 850 mb temps are still forecast to push 4 to 7 degrees C Sun through Mon night across the panhandle resulting in surface high temps reaching into the 40s or low 50s and freezing levels rising to 5000 to 6000 feet Sun into Mon. Panhandle winds will generally be 20 kt or less.

The Gulf waters however, are expected to be rather windy with high wave heights during this time, particularly in the central gulf where a front that will be blocked from moving further E remains mostly stationary. Wide spread 30 kt winds with gales for the central gulf and sea heights reaching 20 ft or more are likely. These winds and waves begin to weaken Mon.

Tue into the rest of next week has a trend toward wetter and cooler again (though not very cool). Uncertainty remains on when the rain will return, but Mon night is looking more favorable then it was yesterday. The return of the rain is brought by a series of lows that will move NW through the eastern gulf from Tue onward. Drastic disagreement on where those lows go and how fast they track though. How much rain and wind various areas of the panhandle get depends on where these lows track and when, so other then a general trend toward wetter and possibly more wind the mid to late week forecast remain rather uncertain at this time.
