Short term through Tuesday night the upper shortwave trof
that brought in the tstms will move E of the area early this
evening. Some upper level ridging will move in tonight, but will
quickly be pushed E by next energetic shortwaves that will move
across the gulf and NE pac through mon. These shortwaves will
merge over the eastern gulf by Mon night, then drift slowly
inland Tue and Tue night. At the sfc, a weak trof will drift n
through the gulf tonight, and will be absorbed by a northward
moving occluded front over the far N gulf mon. A low should
develop over the SW gulf tonight, and reach the central gulf mon,
while another low develops further SE and moves NE into the
eastern gulf by Mon evening. This low will then weaken and move se
along the outer coast Tue and Tue night. A stronger occluded front
will move NE into the eastern gulf mon, then move across SE ak mon
night, exiting the far SE part by daybreak tue. It now appears
that the atmospheric river associated with the more southern
shortwave will get into the southern panhandle for late mon
afternoon and night. After looking over the models, the 12z
canadian seemed to be the best compromise with the systems, but
the differences between the models were not that large overall.

For tonight, the showers will initially diminish as weak ridging
moves in, but increase again overnight as low level convergence
increases ahead of the trof moving in. Still might be a TSTM or
two over the far eastern inner channels early this evening as
well. Rain ahead of the complex system moving into the gulf will
likely reach the outer coast toward daybreak.

For mon-mon night, rain will spread inland Mon morning and early
afternoon. The heaviest rain initially will be along the N half of
the panhandle as deformation and frontogenesis intensify the rain
band during the afternoon. By late afternoon though, with the
atmospheric river reaching the southern area, heavy rain will
begin there as well. Think the far S could get rain rates as high
as 1 2 inch per hour from 00z-06z, especially along S and w
facing terrain. After fropa, precip should transition to showers
along the central outer coast early in the evening, then this
transition to showers will spread inland across the central and n
areas and southern outer coast later in the night. Winds will be
increasing ahead of the low and fronts moving in, and some gale
force winds will be likely over the eastern gulf and southern
inner channels. May also be some strong winds in areas that favor
easterly winds across the n-central area, especially in the
afternoon and early evening.

For Tue into Tue night, the low over the NE gulf will slide se
along the outer coast. There will likely be a small second wrap
frontal band with it that affects the central coast with heavier
showers and a burst of wind. Some of the showers will also get
inland across the central and southern areas. The showers and
winds will slowly diminish from the NW Tue afternoon and night as
the low weakens and moves off to the se.

Long term Wednesday through Sunday night ... Weak upper
level ridging should be building in Wednesday. This should
make all of southeast alaska dry, if not sunny during the day.

The dry weather should reliably last through Thursday night. By
Friday morning, wpc and the national blend are trying to build in
precipitation from the west. ECMWF is pushing a front over the
northern panhandle from the southwest at that time, and the GFS is
totally dry. As a result, confidence in a dry weekend is below
average.

Models are still trying to bring down daytime highs for the second
half of this week. We are now looking at highs in the second half
of the week in the mid to upper 60s. Not the 70s we were
originally expecting, but still solidly above normal for this time
of the year.

Ajk watches warnings advisories
Public... None.

Marine... Gale warning for pkz022-036-041>043-051-052.

Small craft advisory for pkz021-031>035.

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.
