Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 521 AM AKDT Mon Oct 25 2021

SHORT TERM. / Through Tuesday night / Dry weather continues for Southeast Alaska through the first half of Monday. Mid to high- level clouds over the northeast gulf and the southern half of the panhandle. A band of clear skies covers the northern panhandle this morning. Under the clear skies and light winds, patchy fog has formed, and where the fog has not formed, temperatures have cooled into the upper 20s to lower 30s.

A weather front will move across the Gulf of Alaska, and a low will approach the Prince of Wales region of the panhandle by early Tuesday morning. Between this low approaching and spreading light rain into the southern panhandle and moisture and impulse being rotated into the southeastern portion from a low southwest of Vancouver Island, this is pushing rain and showers northward through southern British Columbia. The rain through Tuesday afternoon looks to be primarily south of Icy Strait to Juneau line. 20 to 50 PoP values will push north to Haines/Skagway Tuesday night and showers from continued westerly onshore flow will continue through Wednesday.

Locally breezy conditions with north winds flowing from Skagway into northern Lynn Canal should continue into this morning/midday time range. When the new low approaches the southwest panhandle location, winds of 25 to 30 kt will blow across the Southeast Alaska Coastal waters, expect small crafts to move in by sunrise over the south southeast gulf. Southerly Small Craft winds of 25 kt are likely Tuesday for the Clarence Strait area.

Expect precipitation to be rain for the forecast area except for northwest of Klukwan on Haines Highway or higher elevations of the Klondike Highway. Snow amounts are anticipated to be light through Tuesday night.

LONG TERM. / Wednesday through Monday as of 10 pm Sunday / The long term forecast starts with rain being the predominant area of focus, as a decaying low in the gulf slowly pushes N. This low will bring waves of precipitation across the area through Thursday and Friday. Although no significant flooding concerns are expected at this time there is the potential that some areas in the N Panhandle and Icy Strait Corridor could see some snow mixed in late Thursday night. However, this is a low confidence forecast. While operational guidance does show that temperatures could be cool enough for some of these areas to see snow flakes, MOS Guidance is indicating warmer temperatures overnight. This is likely symptomatic of the issues over the strength of anticipated S flow during this time period. Given the marginal 850 mb temperatures, it would not take much to turn the chance of some snow flakes falling into nothing more than some additional rainfall. For the time being, have indicated the possibility of some areas seeing a mix, though do suspect that the Haines and Klondike Highways will see significantly better chances for snowfall.

Friday will most likely see another wave enter the area. While there are indications that a final wave may try to enter SE AK over the weekend, advancing ahead of a new system taking shape in the W Gulf, do not think it will be able to overcome increasing offshore flow.

This leads us into the question of whether or not Halloween will be on the drier side. Ensembles and guidance alike have both begun pushing the timing of a possible system back further and further. Many of the individual ensemble runs have even gone so far as to keep the system out of the area entirely, instead favoring another system trying to reach the area towards the middle of next week. While this will likely continue to pose a forecasting challenge - the impact of offshore flow on systems can be notoriously difficult to predict - it does signal increasing chances that Halloween proper will likely be on the drier side for many areas. The one possible exception to this could be Yakutat, should the earlier mentioned system successfully advance far enough W.

Otherwise, the other area of note for the forecast will be the temperatures. Cooler temperatures will likely prevail, especially through the weekend. Lower sun angles and clearer skies across much of the area will likely see nippy conditions for Halloween, and through the end of the forecast period. Forecaster confidence is average.
