Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 303 PM AKDT Thu Oct 22 2020

SHORT TERM. /Through Sun/ Cool, dry, and breezy conditions due to a strong ridge of high pressure to the north will persist on Friday and Saturday. MOS guidance was utilized for forecasting these cooler temperatures which continue through Saturday night into Sunday. In the downtown Juneau and Douglas areas, the Taku wind event will continue through Friday keeping temperatures warmer than surrounding areas. This is due to adiabatic warming and mixing that continues well into the overnight-hours. In addition, outflow winds through the northern inner channels, particularly around eldred rock and marmion island, have been blowing up to 30kt. We expect these winds to continue until at least Friday afternoon and possibly longer.

Precipitation from a very moist system will start out Sunday morning with light snow in the northern panhandle, which will change over to rain/snow and then widespread rain leading into Sunday evening once temperatures warm. Little to no snow accumulation expected, except for areas of higher elevation such as Haines Highway and White Pass. Our best guess for the Juneau area is up to 1 inch of snow. Upper Lynn Canal will likely stay colder for longer, however, QPF is expected to be much lighter in that area.

Model biases have temperatures warming on Sunday, but we decided to forecast colder temperatures to better align with the initial lower thicknesses. This lead to spending a lot of time on p-type issues for Sunday.

For precipitation amounts, we utilized the EC/GFS/NBM models. Our confidence is moderate on precipitation timing, but lower confidence on when the precipitation types will change from snow to rain and total amounts of accumulation.

LONG TERM. /Sun night through Thu as of 10 pm Wed/ Sunday night, warm air advection and stronger winds will have scoured out the last of the cold air and thus precipitation will be all rain at sea-level. Moisture will begin to flow into the region Sunday and thicken into Monday as a bonafide atmospheric river presses towards our region. Rainfall amounts between Sunday night and Monday night could amount to 2 to 5 inches across the region. P-type will still be a concern for the Haines Highway and White Pass.

Moist and seasonably mild temperatures are expected to continue across the area through the Wednesday. By Thursday models are hunting at another strong pressure gradient setting up over the interior and another outflow regime bringing cool and dry air back into area by late next week.

AJK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PUBLIC . Strong Wind through Friday afternoon for AKZ025. MARINE . Gale Warning for PKZ013. Small Craft Advisory for PKZ012-022-031-036-041>043.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
