southeast alaska forecast discussion
national weather service juneau ak
242 pm akdt Wed aug 21 2019

Short term The gale force low took a more southerly course
across northern haida gwaii early this morning, thus avoiding the
worst possible wind impacts. The low is now weakening and pushing
off into canada bringing most of the precipitation with it. All
eyes now turn to the next storm system expected to impact the
region Thursday and Friday. A gale force low will make its way
across the gulf on Thursday then slowly weaken Friday before
coming onshore around the central panhandle.

For this evening and tonight, scattered showers will remain across
the central and southern panhandle and the coast mountains due to
onshore flow. Despite the presence of some showers, tonight should
be the driest part of the short term before heavier rainfall moves
back in on Thursday from the west.

Overall model consensus with this next storm system has been
fairly consistent, therefore did not make any major changes from
the previous forecast. The next gale force low entering the
central gulf Thursday will spread a swath of steady rainfall
across southeast alaska during the afternoon hours which will
persist through Friday. Total rainfall amounts in the 1-2" range
are expected by Friday night for much of the panhandle with some
higher totals possible across the south and lesser amounts towards
the far north.

Winds are expected to pick up in the gulf and through some of the
inner channels ahead of the low pressure system. SCA winds are
expected for the coastal waters Thursday morning with gales in
the central gulf. Winds are expected to increase to gales
Thursday afternoon for the central and southern coastal waters
from around CAPE fairweather to the dixon entrance. SCA winds
expected in the southern inner channels Thursday afternoon as
well.

Long term Saturday through Wednesday night as of 10 pm
Tuesday active zonal pacific jet will continue just to the south
of the panhandle through Saturday. In general this means the
continuation of a general onshore flow pattern and periods of
showery weather. As usual in zonal flow, forecast guidance is
having trouble nailing down individual shortwave features, but
overall a damp forecast through the long term period. There are
some indications early next week of upper ridging beginning to
develop over the eastern npac. This would tend to be a pattern
that would direct more subtropical moisture northward and into the
gulf of alaska but exactly when and where this sets up is still
in question. Very little in the way of change was made to the
forecast as the inherited forecast represented the above pattern
well. Temperatures were cooled slightly into the early part of the
weekend to account for more cloud cover and rainfall. Potential
for some warming early next week as the pacific ridge begins to
assert itself. Forecast confidence is high in the general pattern
but as usual, low on the details.

Ajk watches warnings advisories
Public... None.

Marine... Gale warning for pkz041>043.

Small craft advisory for pkz022-035-036-051>053.

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.
