Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 237 PM AKDT Tue Apr 13 2021

SHORT TERM. /Through Thursday/ The main forecast concerns for the short range today is continued wet weather (mainly for the northern panhandle) through Wed night followed by a drying and warming trend into the late week period. First off, of the fronts currently passing through the area, last night's front has mostly moved into Canada with the weaker trailing edge still draped over the central panhandle right now. Rain has diminished this afternoon in the north as a result. However, the trailing edge of the front turns into a warm front over the SE gulf and meets up with the upcoming low in the NE Pacific that will be coming north tonight. The result is more rain coming for the northern inner channels and especially Yakutat into Wed. Most of the heavier rainfall is expected over the NE gulf Coast with lesser amounts for the northern and central inner channels. Temperatures remain rather warm so most if not all of it will be rain. Confidence still average to high with little in the way of changes from the previous forecast.

As for winds, There are some stronger southerly winds blowing through Lynn Canal and into Skagway at the moment. These winds should diminish this evening as surface troughing in the Yukon weakens. Meanwhile the NE gulf has some 25 kt winds that will be increasing to gale as the next front moves north tonight. These winds will diminish into Wed afternoon as the front and low move north.

After Wed, we are looking at the precip diminishing and the temperatures starting to noticeably warm up across the area (southern panhandle especially). 850 mb temps will be rising to near 0 c across the northern inner channels to +8c in the south. Thu high temperatures should be well into the 40s for most areas with 50s for the southern half of the panhandle as a result. Overnight lows will also be warming up with most areas staying above freezing.

LONG TERM. /Thursday through Tuesday/ . The long term begins with a decaying surface low in the gulf, with a corresponding weakening front. Although a weak plume of moisture my bring chances of precipitation back to parts of the central and northern panhandle late Thursday through Friday, it continues to look increasingly likely that the weekend will be fairly clear across much of the panhandle. across the northern half of the region through Wednesday afternoon. With the front decaying, expect winds to diminish through the day as higher pressure takes over.

A thermal ridge will build over much of the panhandle as warmer air finally manages to push north into SE Alaska, and springtime sunshine will make a grand appearance. With higher pressure over Canada and the thermal trough forming over the Panhandle, expect light northerly flow to persist through the weekend. Daily sea breezes may develop Friday and Saturday afternoon as well.

Confidence remains fairly high that the active winter weather pattern which has held the area in its grasp will finally be displaced as a spring- time pattern takes hold of the region. Good agreement exists among the deterministic models and ensembles through the long term.

AJK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. PUBLIC . Strong Wind Wednesday morning for AKZ017. MARINE . Gale Warning for PKZ043-051-052. Small Craft Advisory for PKZ022-031-041-042-053.
