Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 141 PM AKDT Fri Aug 14 2020

SYNOPSIS. Models are doing much better. It will be a nice weekend across the forecast area with only a slight chance of showers along the AlCan Saturday afternoon. The Arctic Coast will be cloudy, but warmer.

DISCUSSION.

Models . With the big ridge building in there is better concensus in the solutions, but that is not surprising. 14/12Z solutions are very agreeable in the short term with just a little disagreement in the midrange as the ridge evolves then rebuilds over the Arctic Coast next week. Surface solutions show the same trend as high pressure dominates northern Alaska and much of the Arctic through next week. Will use a blend of the solutions for the short term for all elements.

Aloft . At 500 hpa . Big ridge building in from the west with a 578 dam center over the Central Bering Sea and the Dateline this afternoon. Ridge axis extends over Nome to Arctic Village and will rotate to lie over Unalaska to Fort Yukon by Saturday afternoon. A secondary axis will lie over Savoonga to Kiana to just east of Utqiagvik and over the Eastern Arctic. Troughing will persist across the Arctic north of 76N with a 534 dam low near 76N and the Dateline and the trough extending northeast to a 538 dam low high in the Canadian Archipelago. A weak shortwave will move south over the AlCan Border Saturday dissipating Saturday evening over the Fortymile Country. A closed 550 dam low near Yakutat will wobble around drifting slowly south through Sunday, then swings back north over the Central Gulf of Alaska Monday. As the ridge morphs and rotates east the closed center will move over the mainland at 568 dam over the Middle Yukon Valley by Sunday afternoon, and over Arctic Village Monday afternoon as it merges with ridging over Western Canada and the Yukon Territory. Troughing will move in behind the ridge over the Eastern Bering Sea with a 548 dam low moving to just west of the Pribilofs and troughing extending north to a 530 dam low 200 nm north of Wrangel Island At 850 hpa. Temperatures between +3C and +11C across the area.

Surface . High pressure will dominate across the area as a 1027 mb high west of St Matthew Island moves to the Pribilofs, while a 1020 mb high develops over the Arctic Plain and a 1018 mb high develops over the Eastern Arctic Coast by Saturday morning. Weak troughing along the north slopes of the Alaska Range will persist as a 1003 mb low moves into the northern Gulf of Alaska. A 1005 mb low 300 nm north of Wrangel Island will weaken and be absorbed by a 1000 mb low moving northeast off the Central Siberian Coast. A 1021 mb high will develop over the Western Chukchi Sea Saturday and move northeast to 100 nm north of Utqiagvik by Sunday afternoon. Weak thermal troughing will be develop east to west from the Upper Tanana Valley to the Middle Tanana Valley to Koyuk.

North Slope and Brooks Range . Generally cloudy conditions, not much surprise there, and some patchy fog, again not much surprise. Temperatures will be some of the warmest of the summer in the coastal areas as highs along the coast will warm into the mid 50s Saturday before the cool to around 50 Sunday. Lows along the coast in the 40s. Inland areas will be quite warm with highs near 70 in the plains. Winds along the coast will be west 5 to 15 mph turning from the northeast Sunday morning. Inland winds variable to 10 mph.

West Coast and Western Interior . Partly cloudy to clear over most of the area with the exception of some morning marine stratus and patchy fog. Winds variable to 10 mph. Along the coast highs in the 50s to lower 640s, while inland highs in the 60s to lower 70s, and lows in the 50s.

Central and Eastern Interior . Mostly clear to partly cloudy through the weekend with warmer daytime temperatures. Highs in the 60s and 70s with lows around 50 for most areas. Cooler spots north of Fairbanks will see lows in the 30s. Winds will be variable to 10 mph.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

Fire Weather. Will be pretty quiet with just a slight chance of thunderstorm activity near the AlCan tomorrow, otherwise expect quite a bit of sun during the day. Temperatures will be warmer with highs in the low 70s. Winds variable to 10 mph. Relative Humidity values will generally be above 35 percent through the weekend with good overnight recovery.

HYDROLOGY. No significant rainfall expected through the weekend, and river and stream levels continue to fall across the area. For the latest river conditions go to www.weather.gov/aprfc.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
