SHORT TERM
Our pattern change continues this morning as clouds are racing ahead of the low and associated front in the gulf.
This low is expected to bring rain and slightly cooler temperatures to the area for the weekend. Current radar and satellite rain rate products show pockets of rain already starting to approach the outer coast area including Sitka. Winds are expected to come up as this system moves closer. Along the outer coast, winds are expected to get up to 25 knots as well as along Clarence Strait. Across other parts of the panhandle, winds are expected to come up with the approaching low but should remain lower than the expected winds for the Outer coast. The brunt of the rain is expected to move in this afternoon and evening as the system moves closer to the panhandle. Right now, the heaviest rain amounts look to be along the mountains of southern Baranof island and then south. Most places though are not expected to get above an inch of rain with this system moving in. With the cloud cover already over the panhandle, overnight temperatures have stayed warm. But the increased cloud cover could also hinder how warm we get today even with the warm origin of this system. Forecasted temperatures for today were left unmodified due to the uncertainty of how warm we could get today.

LONG TERM
/Saturday through Tuesday/...A stacked low pressure center will slowly track eastward across the southern Gulf through Saturday then across Haida Gwaii and Hecate Strait Sunday. The low will be weakening some as it moves through, however bands of vorticity wrapped around the low will result in convective bands of showers, which tend to have some gusty winds. Those bands of showers will namely be over the southern panhandle closer to the low center. The lower latitude of the track will cause offshore flow across the northern half of the panhandle, which should reduce rainfall potential and amounts there.

Models are indicating potential for an easterly wave on Sunday.
There is disagreement on where said wave would cross from B.C. and extends over the panhandle. However, then central panhandle is looking most likely at this time.

Through the first half on next week, another upper level low will track eastward across the southern gulf and give a repeat of offshore flow across the north and shower potential across the south. Additionally, there will be potential for convective development in Canada most days which could spill over the Coast Mountains.

From mid-week onward, upper level flow will shift out of the NW as a ridge of high pressure pushes into the western gulf. This will push most lingering showers back out of the area...but bring back potential for marine layer clouds over the gulf coast.

AVIATION

Anticipating deteriorating flight conditions from south to north across the panhandle through the period as a low pressure system moves into the Eastern Gulf of Alaska, overspreading rain showers under BKN to OVC skies. For southern TAF sites, Sitka over to Petersburg and southward, expect low end VFR to MVFR flight conditions and elevated winds by 18z as front and rain showers push inland with CIGS AoB 5000ft. Conditions deteriorate further to MVFR flight conditions after 00z with CIGs AoB 2500ft and VSBYs near 4 to 5 statue miles. Main LLWS concerns will remain limited to southern coastal TAF sites between 00-06z. For northern TAF sites along and north of Icy Strait, including PAJN, expecting VFR flight conditions through 00z with CIGS dropping to AoB 5000ft after 00z as rain showers begin to move into the northern panhandle.

MARINE
For the Friday into Friday night time frame, marine wind speeds will be greatest along the front. In the gulf, speeds are expected to reach 20 to 25 knots with some evidence of up to 30 knots. These winds will first be seen in the far southern gulf and will track northward, reaching Cross Sound area late Friday morning. Speeds will decrease Friday night as the front more-or- less shears apart.

For the inner channels, the winds will respond as the front moves north. But as the front gets farther away from the parent low, the forcing will be limited, so the speeds won't respond quite as much the farther north it goes. Current timing has the front increasing wind speeds in the southern inner channels to around 20 to 25 knots Friday afternoon with those speeds lasting into Friday night. Farther north, mainly areas north of Frederick Sound, wind speeds will increase to around 10 to 15 knots beginning late Friday afternoon into Friday night.

For the far northern inner channels, winds looks to stay out of the north at around 10 knots or less.
