Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 457 AM AKDT Sat Jun 15 2024

SHORT TERM
The easterly wave which brought showers to the northern and central panhandle on Friday has shifted further north through Saturday morning. High pressure offshore in the Gulf combined with relative clearing overnight has allowed some marine layer clouds to develop along outer coastal communities. As temperatures continue to rise through the day, convection is expected to develop in the far northern inner channels with the potential for isolated thunderstorms, especially closer to the Canadian border.
With the expected rising temperatures today and Saturday with highs approaching 70 degrees, and SPS has been issued to address rising river and stream levels resulting from rainfall and snowmelt.

Winds on the inside waters continue to remain relatively non impactful with only a few areas reporting around 15 kt sustained as of this discussion. Overall looking at winds to pick up to around 15 kt in N Lynn Canal by Saturday afternoon before diminishing into the overnight period. With the expected convective shower activity, erratic winds with stronger gusts than forecast remain possible so be sure to stay tuned for any forecast updates through the afternoon and evening hours.

LONG TERM
Forecast remains on track for the long range as high pressure aloft rotates around the state and western Canada. Thunderstorms will continue to form in Canada Sunday into Monday, which could move over the Coast Mountains into the Panhandle. For mariners operating in the far interior inner channels keep an eye on the sky and watch for erratic winds. Without considering thunderstorm potential, conditions are partly cloudy and largely dry across the Panhandle with temperatures slightly above their seasonal normal for locations outside the marine layer influence. Northwest flow along the coast will bring 15 to 20 knot winds and elevated afternoon sea breezes in the inner channels as well. Looking upstream fire activity across the Yukon and BC territories remain minimal but if any existing fires experience rapid growth over the next 24 hours patterns aloft will steer some elevated smoke into the region. By late Wednesday a shortwave trough will begin to influence the weather across the Panhandle, with onshore flow returning, increasing PoPs through the weekend.

AVIATION
Rather quiet morning for aviation weather today.
Conditions are VFR in most areas. The exceptions are along the outer coast where low level marine layer clouds have developed overnight with ceilings down to 1700 feet seen at Sitka, and in some isolated inner channel locations where some patchy fog has starting to develop this morning. Conditions are expected to stay rather quiet through tonight as VFR conditions and lower winds prevail. Low marine layer clouds will still likely plague the outer coast with MVFR ceilings at times though. There also is the possibility of some showers and maybe a thunderstorm or two near the Coast Mountains along the Canadian Border this afternoon and evening as storms form in Canada and try to cross the mountains.

AJK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
PUBLIC...None.
MARINE...None.
