Southcentral and Southwest Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Anchorage AK 545 AM AKDT Mon Oct 25 2021

ANALYSIS AND UPPER LEVELS.

A compact low centered south of Seward is spreading light rain/sprinkles across the eastern Kenai Peninsula. A narrow band of somewhat heavier rain is moving near Seward. Elsewhere, nearly all of Southcentral and Southwest Alaska is quiet with weak high pressure over the area. Unlike the precipitation, the cloud cover is quite extensive over much of southern Alaska, with low clouds and even a bit of light snow over the Lower Kuskokwim Valley, and cloud cover from the Gulf low spreading north over much of Southcentral. A storm force low that tracked along the Aleutian Chain yesterday is beginning to make its exit back into the North Pacific south of the AKPEN.

In the upper levels, the flow remains largely chaotic over much of southern mainland Alaska, though on average, the upper level flow is about 10 to 20 kts out of the south in the mid-levels. The subtropical Pacific jet is now zonal and is centered south of 50N, and therefore really not impacting the state at all this morning.

MODEL DISCUSSION.

Model agreement is good on the large scale this morning. For the most part, the weather remains quiet over nearly all of the area. The storm force low which tracked the length of the Aleutian chain yesterday is now moving south of Alaska as it heads south of the Gulf. It will move into the Panhandle Tuesday, at which point it may drift back westward as it weakens, which may cause some precipitation along the coast to Prince William Sound by Wednesday. There are some timing differences with a weak low approaching the Kuskokwim Delta Tuesday evening, but impacts from this low regardless were minimal. Forecast confidence is high.

AVIATION. PANC . VFR conditions and light winds will persist.

.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA (Days 1 through 2: Monday through Tuesday night) .

Low pressure over the Gulf is weakening this morning while sustaining light showers over Prince William Sound and portions of the Kenai Peninsula. This low will eventually lift northward into Southcentral on Tuesday and dissipate. However, lingering showers may persist through the morning hours on Monday for portions of Kodiak while off and on rain may persist into the overnight hours for Cordova. Any additional areas of precipitation will gradually clear out with partly cloudy skies for much of the day throughout Southcentral. Mostly benign conditions are forecast the next couple of days with a lack of any significant areas of forcing or trough movement through the region. The arrival of colder air filtering in from the north and northwest is anticipated on Tuesday and Tuesday night with a few flurries possible for the Anchorage Bowl early on Wednesday. Light snow will also be possible across the Talkeetnas into the Copper Basin with negligible accumulations. Otherwise, the colder upper temperatures are forecast to bring increasingly gusty winds to outflow prone regions along the coast, including west and east of the Barren Islands, across Seward and Resurrection Bay, Valdez Port, as well as Thompson Pass by the middle of the week.

SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHWEST ALASKA (Days 1 to 2).

A generally quiet pattern is in track to continue over the course of the next couple days. Cool northerly flow will continue east of a shortwave ridge centered over the Bering, keeping conditions dry by and large with partly cloudy skies through Tuesday. Occasional snow showers are possible near the Kuskokwim Delta Coast as they move onshore from the Bering with weak waves passing through aloft. Temperatures are seasonably cool, with highs around the freezing mark today and Tuesday and inland lows dipping into the 10s for most areas for early Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

On Tuesday afternoon, a low moving off of Kamchatka will enter the northern Bering and drop south between the Pribilofs and Nunivak Island by Wednesday morning. This should bring a front onshore at some point along the Southwest Coast, although models vary somewhat with the progression of both the front and its parent low by this point in time. The faster solutions bring a band of potentially moderate snowfall into parts of the Y-K Delta and northern Bristol Bay by around midday Wednesday, with slower solutions keeping frontal precip limited to coastal locations until later in the day. The current forecast reflects a middle ground solution, with snowfall spreading slowly inland from west to east on Wednesday morning.

SHORT TERM FORECAST BERING SEA/ALEUTIANS (Days 1 to 2).

A North Pacific low south of the Alaska Peninsula this morning will exit the picture by this afternoon as it moves out towards the Gulf, with easterly gale force winds along and south of the Eastern Aleutians quickly subsiding. A high pressure ridge will move over the Bering in its place from tonight into Tuesday, yielding a short break in the active weather for much of the region. Gap winds on Tuesday will pick up through the southern AKPen as northerly flow strengthens between the Bering ridge and low moving south of the Gulf. Widely scattered convective rain and snow showers will continue over much of the Bering as cold air advecting over the sea surface picks up moisture and warmth and becomes unstable near sea level.

A Kamchatka low will drop south into the northern Bering late on Tuesday, bringing another round of more active weather back into play. Gales are now anticipated to wrap around the western side of the system, spreading south towards the Pribilofs on Wednesday morning. A swiftly moving band of mostly rain mixing with snow will move out ahead of the low along its front, passing over the Pribilofs Tuesday night and moving southeast into the Aleutians by early Wednesday morning.

MARINE (Days 3 through 5: Wednesday through Friday).

Confidence is high with a benign pattern setting up for the Gulf of Alaska waters through Friday. Weak low pressure will develop near Prince William Sound Wednesday night before moving over Canada. Thursday night and into Friday, low pressure will track near Kodiak. An attendant front will move north, potentially creating a gale force barrier jet Friday evening.

A Siberian Low will move into the northern Bering Wednesday. This low will deepen as it moves towards Bristol Bay Thursday, providing low end gales, with higher end gales possible. Low pressure developing off of the coast of Japan early this week will move north towards the Aleutian waters. Confidence remains low on the forecast track. Presently it remains south of the forecast marine area.

.Long Term Discussion (Days 4 through 7: Thursday through Sunday) .

Low pressure that is developing near Japan will be the primary weather maker into the long term forecast. The forecast challenges for the Aleutians will be how far north this low moves. American guidance lifts it clear across Adak, while European guidance keeps it a few hundred nautical miles south. By the weekend, the picture does get a little clearer as a front will lift north across the Gulf of Alaska and impact the coast of south central and Kodiak. For coastal areas facing the Gulf and inland areas near Cook Inlet, freezing levels are progged to be in the 2.5 to 3 kft range, keeping cold rain in the forecast from Homer through Palmer. Meanwhile the Chugach and parts of the Alaska, Talkeetna and Wrangell Ranges will see snow above. Temperatures are not expected to deviate much from normal for this time of year.
