Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion . CORRECTED National Weather Service Juneau AK 248 PM AKDT Mon Sep 28 2020

SHORT TERM. Winds are slowing down across the region as the former storm force low continues to move into the interior. A strong enough pressure gradient still exists in the far northern panhandle to keep up SCA winds through Lynn Canal and Strong winds in Skagway through at least the afternoon hours. As weak ridging builds over the region, onshore flow will continue to keep showery activity present over the panhandle, some of which has found enough instability to create some lightning during the day. Currently, the only detectable lightning is along the northeast gulf coast. Over the course of the evening and overnight Monday, a warm front will begin lifting northward through the Gulf and should be arriving at the southern panhandle by daybreak Tuesday. In the interim, as showers become more isolated, expect some clearing to take place. Expect temperatures will cool enough to produce fog in those areas that do see sufficient clearing during the overnight hours.

As for the Tuesday front, do not expect nearly as much rain as was produced by it's predecessor Sunday, however as the associated low continues to deepen and move northward, winds should begin to pick up again. As with the rain, not as impressive winds expected in the region compared to the last one as this low looks to take a more westward track, however gales in at least the open Gulf waters appear likely by Tuesday afternoon. Guidance is beginning to lead in favor that the front will move through rather quickly and many areas of the southern panhandle will see some clearing Tuesday night, again, opening up the possibility for fog.

Most of the rest of the panhandle gets to see the clouds scour out during the morning on Wednesday, which may lead to needing to do some modification to the high temp forecast, regardless, current forecast temps are the warmest of the week. For those of us that do get to see the sun, enjoy it while you can as clouds move in ahead of another front moving in from the west by Wednesday afternoon. Rain with this front looks a bit more robust with amounts between a quarter to a half inch looking to be fairly common across the region.

LONG TERM. Wednesday through Monday . Quite an active long term with multiple systems impacting Southeast Alaska over the next week. Little change in the pattern with a longwave trough over AK Peninsula/N Pacific and strong ridging over west coast of North America. Models are coming into better agreement regarding the timing of fronts pushing through the gulf and into the panhandle.

The period begins with a quasi-warm front moving northward through the Panhandle from a strong ~970mb low south of Kodiak Island. Very unusual pattern for southern Alaska as it appears much of the eastern gulf and Panhandle will be in the warm sector of the low. Warm air advection behind the warm front is expected to increase 850 mb temps to around 16C Wednesday morning. Ensembles and deterministic models have been showing this anomalous low and mid level warm air advection for about a week now. Model soundings indicate a large inversion just above the surface through Wednesday afternoon. This is a tricky pattern as a few scenarios could play out. Fog and low clouds are expected to develop under the inversion across much of the southern and central Panhandle early Wednesday morning. Due to the lower sun angle this time of year, the boundary layer may not be able to heat up enough to break the inversion after sunrise. If that's the case, fog and low clouds may stick around for much of the day, until the next front arrive by the afternoon hours. If the inversion does break, fog will dissipate quickly and surface temperatures could spike into at least the 60s. Forecast confidence for Wednesday morning is low due to the unusual set up.

Another front will bring the next round of precip to the region Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. Rain will be in and out of the Panhandle quite fast as a ridge builds in from the SE right behind it. The large ridge over western North America building into the Panhandle will quickly dry things out as low level flow turns around to the SE and drier air moves in. With light winds and an area of high pressure over the Panhandle, the potential for widespread fog is there Thursday morning.

Active weather is expected to continue into next weekend as two more systems are forecast to impact the region. The dry weather will only last around 24 hours as the next front moves in early Friday morning. Ensembles continue to show IVT and PW 2 to 3 standard deviations above normal for Friday, indicating the possibility for heavy rainfall with this front. The second system for the weekend moves in on Sunday and is shown in both the ensembles and deterministic models. Ensembles continue to indicate low level temps 2-4 standard deviations above normal so expect temps to be slightly above normal through the period as well. Overall forecast confidence is around average for the long term.

AJK Watches/Warnings/Advisories. PUBLIC . Strong Wind until 7 PM AKDT this evening for AKZ018. MARINE . Small Craft Advisory for PKZ012-022-041>043-051>053.
