Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 614 AM AKST Fri Dec 4 2020

SHORT TERM. A frontal band is moving northward through SE AK. The main precipitation band lies across the central panhandle early Friday morning. Rain rates based on observations and satellite sampling are mainly under a tenth an inch an hour but up to 2 tenths locally. The associated low will track north to just north of Cross Sound and dissipate this evening. Rain falls from this feature look to between 1/2 to maybe an inch.

Colder air near the border and at higher elevations will have snow falling this morning through the day, although slight warming should switch the snow to rain or mix it in along the Haines road. Snow should continue near White Pass into tonight with a couple more inches of snow. Accumulations near Haines customs is expected around 4 inches, and 4 to 6 for White Pass.

A second low will develop and move north over the east gulf with closed low and some stronger winds associated with it starting Saturday morning and progressing northward. This low also tracks to near Cape Fairweather before dissipating. There is good rainfall totals with this system as well of 1 to 2 inches. When this front gets to northern Lynn Canal, White Pass will likely receive a few more inches of snow, and will need to watch the amounts expected to fall as it could be between 4 and 6 inches more.

Sunday continues to look like there will be significant front moving across the gulf and into the panhandle. Gale force winds in the marine areas ahead of the front and another 1 to 2 inches rain in the forecast. May need to post wind related headlines for the coastal area.

LONG TERM. /Sun through Fri as of 10 pm Thu/ Rather active long range period as several storms will be taking aim at the area. these storms will be coming one after the other with only around 24 to 48 hours between them. Each one bringing more precipitation (anywhere from half an inch to up to 2 inches) and wind (gale force winds in marine areas and gusts above 40 mph for land areas). Though all of these systems are not as strong or as moist as the system that went through earlier this week.

At the current time the highest forecast confidence is with the front that will be moving through on Sun (which appears to be one of the stronger storms of the series). After that, confidence begins to suffer as timing and track of the individual systems varies model to model and even run to run. What remains constant is the general trend of continued wet weather for most of the area and a general trend toward colder conditions as the week goes on. Snow may make a return for sea level areas in the northern half of the panhandle by mid to late week.

AVIATION. Wind shear across most of the southern panhandle today with a frontal band lifting northeast through the area. The Shear looks to be diminishing after sunset. Ceiling today mainly between 1500 to 4000 feet, although there are some pockets of lower ceiling as low as 500 ft over the northern Lynn Canal area.

AJK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PUBLIC . Winter Weather Advisory until noon AKST today for AKZ019. Flash Flood Watch until 3 PM AKST this afternoon for AKZ018-019. Areal Flood Advisory until 3 PM AKST this afternoon for AKZ020. Winter Weather Advisory until 9 PM AKST this evening for AKZ018. MARINE . Gale Warning for PKZ036-041-042.

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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
