SHORT TERM
/Through Sunday night/ Damp short range forecast in the works for the rest of the weekend. A slowly weakening low in the southern gulf is continuing to swing showers up into the panhandle with measurable rain seen as far north as Elfin Cove and Juneau today. Winds have been mostly low with the highest wind observed in the southern panhandle with 20 kt around Clarence Strait.

General trend through Sunday night is watching the southern gulf low drift toward Haida Gwaii and slowly weaken while watching to see what it drags in from Canada. Widely scattered showers are the order of the day for most areas through Sunday night, but there are two stronger features of concern that are being watched. The first is a front like feature that tries to stall out along the Canadian border just north and west of Haines Sunday. Most guidance wants something there, but whether it just stalls there or wavers back and forth will have implications on how much rainfall (ranging from 0.25 to 0.75" or higher) is introduced to the Chilkat River valley. Decided to have some higher pops in that area for the forecast but have a little more middle of the road approach for qpf. Feature number two is a short wave coming into the central panhandle from the east on Sunday into Sunday night mainly aimed in the area of Angoon to Petersburg to Wrangell.
There is some disagreement on how far into the panhandle it gets and where it goes once it gets here. Solutions range from it not getting into the panhandle at all to it getting here, but either heading south or heading out to sea. Generally kept 40 to 70 percent pops in that region for Sunday into Sunday night to account for the forecast spread there.

As for winds, generally expecting mostly low winds (less then 15 kt most areas). Highest winds will be this evening in Clarence Strait where some lingering 20 kt southerlies could still be blowing. Otherwise just the usual sea breeze circulations in the afternoons and evenings for the most part.

LONG TERM
Extended forecast remains relatively unchanged for next week with lingering showers Monday diminishing into Tuesday, followed by a warming and drying trend. For the big picture, the showers to start the period are due to energy from an easterly wave mentioned above in the short term discussion. After this, a surface ridge is expected to build in over the gulf which will bring clearing skies to the inner channels and overall warmer surface temperatures due to abundant summer sunshine. Being on the downstream side of this developing ridge, the one exception to clearer skies may be the chance of a marine layer developing and pushing into coastal communities. This will also lead to generally light winds overall throughout the panhandle. Expect the highest winds with the usual sea breeze circulations in the afternoon and evening hours. Being on the downstream side of the developing ridge, the exception to otherwise clearer skies would be any marine layer potentially moving into coastal communities.

As is often the case, model guidance is not in full agreement on the longevity of this blocking ridge over the gulf. However, the first indications of unsettled weather returning to the panhandle do not show up until the end of next week as of this forecast issuance. Overall shaping up to be a fairly dry, warm and not so windy week to end the month of June!

AVIATION
Generally MVFR most sites tonight with CIGS AOA 2500 ft agl. A few sites may experience local effects for fog and low ceilings tonight, but we are not seeing much signal in the model data to support this. Otherwise scattered showers over the area this afternoon will gradually diminish in areal coverage after 00Z tonight as the upper low over the SERN Gulf makes general process eastward. Winds are expected to remain generally light except in a few spots in the next 6 hrs that see some minor diurnal response (like Skagway). No LLWS concerns for the next 24 hours at this time.

HYDROLOGY
Chilkat River remains above minor flood stage today due to higher elevation snow melt. The expected daily peak this morning was lower then several of the previous days due to cooler temperatures from cloud cover and that will likely be the case for tomorrow as well if snowmelt continues to be the only input. The fly in the soup is how much rain the upper reaches of the Chilkat basin will receive from a stalled weak frontal feature Saturday night into Sunday. Possible amounts range from as low as 0.25" to 0.75" or higher through Sunday afternoon. With the combined snowmelt and the added rain input the Chilkat River is expected to remain above minor flood stage (but below moderate) peaking just below 127.0 feet by early Monday, but could be lower or somewhat higher if the expected rain input is lower or higher then expected.
