Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 148 PM AKDT Sun Sep 26 2021

SHORT TERM. Satellite imagery shows a low pressure system spinning southwest of Haida Gwaii moving to the ENE. This system is pushing a front north towards the southern panhandle. Showers will be on the increase across the southern panhandle this evening as the front approaches. Model lifted index values and CAPE do suggest some weak thunderstorm potential and there have been a few lightning strikes south of the area, so a slight chance of thunderstorms was added to the tonight's forecast from a Hydaburg- Ketchikan line south to Dixon Entrance. With the low south of the panhandle, northerly winds will be the rule, strongest over Lynn Canal where Small Craft Advisories are in effect. Forecast winds were increased in the Craig and Hydaburg areas as the front approaches and the low drifts closer overnight. There is also the potential tonight for some gusty winds in the Juneau area with some ingredients of a weak mountain wave event in place. The forecast represented this well, with gusts in the 25-35mph range possible. Temperatures are mostly unremarkable, with the exception of Yakutat where due to light winds and a partly cloudy sky, we do expect another night at or slightly below freezing.

Tomorrow, as the low drifts northward and dissipates a chance of showers (highest chances south) is in the forecast for most of the panhandle, with the exception of Yakutat which should have dry weather Monday into Tuesday. A ridge builds briefly over the panhandle on Tuesday with calm winds and drier weather ahead of the next gale force front arriving Wednesday morning. With the next front, winds were increased to gales for the outside waters and small craft conditions expected for most of the inside waters. Periods of moderate to heavy rain, especially over the southern panhandle, are expected Wednesday with 24-hour rain amounts in the 2-3 inch range. This is just the beginning of what looks to be an active second half of the week.

LONG TERM. / Tuesday through Sunday as of 10 pm Saturday / Ridge over the eastern half of the gulf early Tuesday morning is moved into Canada. A moderately deep low that crossed over the Alaska Peninsula to the Northwest Gulf and the associated front will move into the the panhandle Tuesday night and Wednesday. The front should be strong enough for 30 to 35 kt winds as the front approaches. Solid rain totals are likely for the front passage, and a secondary trough rotates about the low and then into the southern panhandle Wednesday.

Through Thursday the residual low over the gulf weakens with slowly building high pressure in the gulf as models move a strong low from the Bering to the gulf Friday to Saturday. Timing issues with these items vary up to 12 hours or so, but ensemble thoughts are there with a 20 to 40 percent chance the low depth will be below 980 mb. Given the timing issues the positions tracks are slightly different. Have bumped the gulf winds up to Gales for the outside coastal waters associated with the system as it makes land fall. Showers or bands of showers rotating about the low in the northern gulf will impact the panhandle into the weekend.

Snow levels shifting a little through the extended portion of the forecast with a general value of 3 to 4.5 thousand feet. Surface temperatures will remain seasonable to a just a touch cooler (no more than 3 degrees).
