Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 438 AM AKDT Mon Apr 15 2024

SHORT TERM
/ Through Monday night / Trough will continue to slide southeast through the panhandle. The southern third has clouds, and some of the lower ones have lead to areas of fog with visibility to a mile or less. The northern half and northeast gulf coast, has primarily clear skies for the rest of the forecast area and this should persist overnight due to high pressure over the eastern gulf and western Canada with a light offshore flow through Monday night. The patchy fog in the Klawock area has been around 1/4 mile so have issued a dense fog advisory for Prince of Wales Island.

LONG TERM
The major theme for this medium range forecast period is one of drying weather and warming conditions. By next Thursday, locations across Southeast Alaska will be experiencing daily high temperatures from 5 to as much as 10 degrees above normal for the middle of April. As is usually the case, more southerly locations will see the warmest weather with some spots south of Frederick Sound getting up to 60 degrees or possibly even higher. Currently, Thursday or Friday are looking like the warmest days based on ensembles, but we won't exactly be going into a deep freeze by the end of next weekend. I think Spring temperatures may have finally arrived for good in Southeast Alaska. Well before Tuesday morning precipitation across the region will have ended and cloud cover will have dissipated.
Overnight lows will still be below freezing Tuesday night as a result of the clearing skies, so don't leave those hanging baskets of flowers out overnight just yet. Still, overnight lows will also rise as the week goes by with most, if not all, locations near sea level remaining above freezing by Wednesday night. Look for diurnal temperature ranges of 20 degrees or more under these mostly clear skies with that temperature spread remaining steady as both the daily highs and overnight lows rise through the week.

Looking out to next weekend, ensemble blends (as well as the official forecast) suggest a return of precipitation. Granted, 7 day into the future is a hard target for a deterministic model to hit, but every single deterministic model we can see right now that runs that far into the future indicates continued dry weather. Statistically speaking, the ensemble models out-perform deterministic models that far into the future, but this forecaster is counting on a long shot win. Why? A very strong surface ridge of high pressure will stand between SEAK and the next significant low pressure system towards the end of the week. Additionally, SEAK is coming into our driest part of the year.

AVIATION
Patchy fog Monday in the inner channels due to clearing skies overnight will linger through the morning hours, observed in Petersburg and Klawock getting down to 1/2 mile or less at times. Otherwise will see widespread VFR conditions with no wind concerns as the panhandle comes under the influence of a strengthening ridge in the Gulf for the foreseeable future.
