Southcentral and Southwest Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Anchorage AK 510 PM AKDT Sun Jun 16 2024

.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA (Days 1 through 3)...

High pressure remains over Southcentral this evening with a compact upper low spinning over Kodiak Island. Despite strong daytime heating contributing to numerous areas of cumulus clouds over the Copper River Basin, high pressure is expected to limit the overall threat for wet thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Temperatures have been warmer across the Copper River Basin beneath the ridge of high pressure, with Chistochina and Chitina reaching 80 degrees and Gulkana just below at 79 degrees.
Across the Mat-Su Valleys and Anchorage Bowl temperatures are warm, but not as warm as Saturday's high temperatures. The greatest threat for thunderstorms will extend from along the Talkeetnas westward into the Susitna Valley. Satellite imagery shows a few lightning strikes have occurred northeast of Chickaloon and southeast of Talkeetna. Through the evening hours isolated lightning will remain possible. Further south, into the Kenai Peninsula, up-inlet flow has brought areas of fog and low stratus along the coast, helping to moderate temperatures. Kenai remains in the low 50s while Soldotna sits in the low 60s.

High pressure over the Bering has resulted in widespread low stratus and areas of fog on Sunday. Tonight some of this marine layer will advect northward into Prince William Sound and up Cook Inlet. Expect reduced visibility down or less than 1 mile at times across the Kenai area as well as across Cordova.

The weather pattern changes over the next couple of days with the low over Kodiak Island to lift northward across the Western Alaska Range and high pressure over Southcentral to shift eastward over the ALCAN border through Tuesday. This will see a subtle but noticeable cooling trend as well as reduced thunderstorm activity across Southcentral. By Tuesday south to southeast flow moves into the Gulf Coast which should see increased cloud cover over Southcentral and even cooler temperatures over the region.

.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHWEST ALASKA/BERING SEA/ALEUTIANS (Days 1 through 3)...

Upper level ridging shifts northward as a series of shortwaves move through Southwest Alaska over the next few days.
Thunderstorms across the western Aleutian Range and interior Bristol Bay area will drift westward through this evening, with activity possibly lasting overnight into the Kuskokwim Delta area with modest upper level support. On Monday, a potent vort max swings in from the east over Southwest Alaska with scattered thunderstorms capable of producing frequent lightning and small hail expected once again. Storms will initiate over the western Alaska Range and Middle Kuskokwim Valley in the late afternoon and slowly drift north and west through the evening. While instability will be lower near the Kuskokwim Delta, scattered shower activity is still expected, and an isolated lightning strike or two cannot be ruled out.

A front over the central Aleutians will continue to slide eastward through the eastern Aleutians bringing periods of rain through Monday night. Southerly/southeasterly gap winds near small craft criteria will continue across the eastern Aleutians and Alaska Peninsula through at least Tuesday. Scattered rain showers are expected to continue over the rest of the Aleutian Chain over the next few days as an upper low meanders over the area.

.LONG TERM FORECAST (Days 4 through 7: Thursday through Sunday)...

Model agreement is pretty good through the forecast period. The upper level high covers the Northern two- thirds of the Mainland before shifting to cover the Eastern half through the weekend.
This ridge supports surface thermal trough, maintaining the chances for convection. Coming from the Chukchi Sea through the Bering Strait, an upper level closed low weakens as it drifts into the Central Bering by Sunday. A trough moving over the Alaska Peninsula Thursday becomes a low center near the Southwest Gulf of Alaska Friday before meandering around the Gulf and the Eastern North Pacific through the end of the forecast period. While the main storm track is out in the North Pacific, weak troughs continues to slide along the Aleutians and AKPEN, continuing around the Gulf through the period.

Showers and possible thunderstorms are expected mostly in the Eastern Interior. Morning fog and stratus yields to afternoon showers across the Western Alaska coast and Pribilofs with the Bering low's movement. The upper low over the AKPEN brings locally heavy showers across Southwest Alaska and Kodiak Island starting Thursday. Weak fronts bring rain across the Aleutians and AKPEN, spreading into Southwest and Southcentral Alaska for late Saturday. Generally mild conditions spread across Southcentral through late Friday with scattered afternoon and evening showers and isolated thunderstorms developing through Sunday and clearing up/drying out afterwards.

AVIATION

PANC...VFR conditions and light winds will persist. Expect isolated thunderstorms to form on the Front Range Chugach this afternoon/evening and possibly again Monday. However, storm motion is much lighter than on Saturday and is from southeast to northwest (opposite of Saturday). Thus, anything that does form will remain well away from the terminal. Meanwhile, southerly flow in Cook Inlet has brought in some low stratus clouds (and potentially fog) from the Gulf. At this point, do not think this will make it as far north as Anchorage. More likely, it will hover over the southern and western Inlet. Still, this will bear watching tonight and in coming days with persistent southerly flow.
