/Through Tuesday night/ Clouds and some showers continue to plague the panhandle today. Most, if not all, of the shower activity today has been across the central inner channels (from Petersburg to Juneau) from an easterly short wave that came in from Canada last night. Rainfall amounts have been low for the most part. Winds remain mostly at or below 15 kt panhandle wide.

Short range forecast is looking at a gradual drying and clearing trend into Tuesday night. Currently the clouds are sticking around because low level flow is light onshore. That is expected to change on Tuesday with a light offshore flow taking over at low levels. This should start to clear the clouds out of the area starting in the north as we go into Tuesday afternoon and night.
There are some indications that there is one last easterly short wave that is trying to move in from Canada on Tuesday night that may bring some light rain to the Icy Strait and Juneau areas.
Confidence on this feature is somewhat poor so only have 30 to 40 percent pops and mostly cloudy skies at most to account for the possibility of it.

Winds are still expected to be 15 kt or less for the most part.
Highest winds will still be from the various sea breeze circulations in the afternoons and evenings.

The start of the long term period Wednesday will feature a slight chance of an easterly wave mentioned at the tail end of the short range discussion. Once that is resolved, skies should begin to clear in earnest as high pressure builds over the Gulf. This will lead to continued light winds of 10 kt or less for a majority of the inside waters, with the exception being afternoon/evening sea breeze circulations such as northern Lynn Canal near Taku Inlet. As the ridge builds, there will be a slight tightening of the pressure gradient in the SE Gulf with winds out of the NW for coastal waters reaching around 20 kt. This is expected to be relatively short lived and peak late Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

Overall the big picture is relatively unchanged for the remainder of the week with daytime maximum temperatures reaching the mid 60s and low to mid 70s in some areas. 850 mb temperatures still remain on track to be 8 to 10 degrees Celsius by the end of the week, and subsequently snow levels will be steadily rising to between 9,000 and 10,000 feet over a majority of the panhandle.
Once again, being on the downstream side of the ridge, a marine layer is still possible to bring on and off cloudy conditions to the outer coastal communities which could limit daytime warming.

Model guidance continues to wrestle with the idea of a system moving into the far southern gulf at the beginning of the weekend to break up the otherwise benign pattern. While timing and track remain somewhat scattered, the general consensus is that this system will not be particularly strong. Winds in the southern and central gulf will shift to be more easterly and increase in response to this advancing system, but are expected to remain below 25 kt. Overall lower forecaster confidence for timing of precipitation to return to the southern panhandle, with a nebulous timeframe of sometime this weekend. Stay tuned for the latest forecast updates as the week progresses.

Aviation concerns today have been the low clouds.
Morning clouds decks mostly ranged from 1000 to 3000 feet.

Visibility was reduced at times due to rain showers, but on average the visibility has been 6 to 10 miles today.

Wind speeds aren`t too high, mainly around 5 to 15 knots.

Going forward into tonight, weak trough tracking north will lower conditions again. So overall, expecting low-end MVFR to IFR again tonight. For the northern half of the panhandle, isolated and temporary LIFR cloud decks can`t be completely ruled out with LIFR probabilities around 10 to 30% during the overnight hours.

Surface high pressure building in the gulf tomorrow will begin to improve weather conditions late tomorrow morning into tomorrow afternoon with continued improving weather lasting into mid week.

Chilkat River remains above minor flood stage today due to higher elevation snow melt. Temperatures are expected to remain high over the next several days and are even expected to increase as cloud cover diminishes. Flower Mountain Snotel site shows around 9.7 inches of SWE still in the snowpack at 2500 feet elevation so there is still a decent amount of snow to melt at higher elevations of the Chilkat basin. As such the Chilkat River it expected to remain above minor flood stage for the next few days at least and the advisory may need to be extended if high water persists.
