Southcentral and Southwest Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Anchorage AK 458 PM AKST Sat Jan 18 2020

ANALYSIS AND UPPER LEVELS. The pattern that was previously dominated by a strong, closed Arctic high is transitioning to more and more influence from the North Pacific. The net effect is more moisture crossing from east to west across the Gulf of AK and slowly warming temperatures. Some of the first evidence of this is across Kodiak Island where snow has been falling most of the night. However, temperatures at the airport have warmed into the mid 30s and allowed some brief bouts of rain to mix in. Some of these "easterly waves" have enough energy to bring some light snow to portions of Bristol Bay as well. Meanwhile across the Bering, things remain very quiet. A weak deformation band stretches from north to south across the entire Bering Sea. It continues to make for brief bursts of heavier snow from St. Matthew Island, down through the Pribilofs, and into Nikolski.

The primary storm track remains well south of the mainland. It is moving quickly from the Western Aleutians southeast into the North Pacific and then turns sharply into the Panhandle of AK. Wind speeds at 300 mb (30,000') top out in the North Pacific at about 150 kts. Thus, expect most of the stronger storms and warm air to stay well south of the mainland at least for the next few days.

MODEL DISCUSSION. Models are in good agreement with each other regarding synoptics. However, they are struggling to depict some of the finer, key details. In general, they painted Kodiak last night with nearly an inch of QPF. However so far, they have only been able to muster about 1/3 of an inch. As these "easterly waves" transit over the AK Range into SW AK later tonight, there is still high uncertainty on exactly where some of the heavier bands of snow will set up. Some of the recent hi-res models want to park some of the bands near Dillingham, but forecast thinking is that these bands will be transient and move off into the Bering after a few hours.

AVIATION. PANC . VFR conditions and light north winds will persist.

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

A weakening trough is moving across the AKPEN this evening, keeping some scattered snow showers and gusty easterly winds continuing across Kodiak Island this evening. Elsewhere, gusty outflow winds will continue through the overnight hours through bays and passes near and along the Gulf coast as a strong pressure gradient remains between high pressure inland and lower pressure over the Gulf.

A second surface low is spinning up in the north Pacific and will swing a front across the Southcentral coast from east to west by Sunday morning as the surface low lifts north into the Gulf. This frontal system will usher in snow for much of coastal Southcentral with the potential for a changeover to mixed rain/snow or even all rain along the immediate coast for places like Cordova and coastal Prince William Sound by Sunday evening. For more protected locations along the coast (e.g. Seward, Whittier, Valdez) enough cold air should remain in place for the precipitation to stay as snow through the duration of the event. The heaviest snow amounts look to be in the Chugach and Kenai Mountains, with as much as 5 to 10 inches possible through Turnagain Pass and Portage Valley from Sunday evening through Monday evening.

Also on Monday, a shortwave trough digging south across the AKPEN will undercut the surface trough over coastal Southcentral and begin to lift it north, guiding it over interior Southcentral. As it does, the flow will turn more southerly and allow some moisture to work up Cook Inlet. This will allow for some light snow to develop over western Kenai Peninsula north across the Anchorage Bowl and into the Susitna Valley. Right now, it looks like a quick shot of light snow, with perhaps a coating to up to 2 inches over this area.

Another aspect of the surface frontal system will be the influx of warmer air across the region. The east-southeasterly flow will help to scour out much of the arctic air currently in place with temperature climbing above 0F in the Copper River Basin, into the teens and twenties from the Kenai Peninsula north across the Mat-Su, and around the freezing marks along the coast by Monday.

Some clouds and scattered snow showers will linger, mainly across the mountains, into Tuesday as temperatures begin to cool back down.

SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHWEST ALASKA (Through Tuesday).

A weak frontal boundary situated over western Alaska will bring snow to areas in and around Bristol Bay Saturday night and Sunday with a few isolated snow showers making it into the Kuskokwim Delta. Otherwise, expecting cold and dry conditions to persist through the weekend and first part of the week. Temperatures are expected to warm a bit towards Tuesday with the introduction of some clouds into the region thanks to an upper level disturbance tracking through on Monday.

SHORT TERM FORECAST BERING SEA/ALEUTIANS (Through Tuesday).

Snow showers will continue to track through the Bering along a weakening frontal boundary. Expecting some shift of this pattern northward of the Pribilofs on Tuesday morning as the disturbance responsible for it also lifts north. Consequently, colder temperatures will move in Tuesday behind the frontal boundary with a weak area of high pressure.

MARINE (Days 3 through 5. Tue through Thu) . The primary areas of concern during this time period will be along the Aleutian Chain. One system will just skirt along the south side of the chain Tue into Wed. This could bring easterly winds as high as high end gale force, but for now it looks like the strongest winds will stay south of the marine zones. The next system will push towards the Western Aleutians (Zones 177-178) late Wed into Thu. This system looks to bring a healthy swath of gale force winds from the Central to the Western ALeutians.

.LONG TERM FORECAST (Days 4 through 7: Wednesday through Saturday) .

On Tuesday, zonal flow is expected to exist in the Bering Sea and a pretty diffuse pattern (not much going on) will exist in Southcentral AK. This will change Wednesday as long range guidance continues to show an upper level blocking ridge building from the north Pacific across the AKPEN and into the Bering Sea. An anchoring high will be present by Friday, securing the position of this ridge for the remainder of next week.

This means high pressure for the Bering Sea and cold air over mainland AK. It is possible for deep cold to return to the Copper River Basin late next week with this pattern. Offshore gusty winds will be possible in southwest AK and the western Gulf. Low pressure will be present somewhere in the Gulf of Alaska, but this is one feature guidance is having trouble with. We know a trough will dig south through eastern Alaska into a low in the gulf. However, there is disagreement where this will set up. For now it looks like the eastern Gulf will be impacted by any low pressure setup, but confidence is low with this aspect of the forecast. This pattern shift is something we will be paying close attention to, so expect modifications with the forecast in coming days.
