Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 347 PM AKST Thu Dec 5 2019

SYNOPSIS. A weather system will move north along the west coast this weekend bringing a mixture of snow, freezing rain, strong winds and blowing snow. Cold temperatures will persist tonight across Interior tonight; however, a warming trend is expected for the weekend as southerly flow develops over the Alaska Range for the weekend.

DISCUSSION. Overall the models are in decent agreement in the short term with the synoptic scale pattern; however there are still differences with the low that will north along the west coast this weekend, both in terms of the strength and the placement of the low moving north along the west coast.

Central and Eastern Interior: High pressure will persist across the Interior tonight. This should help to keep skies mostly clear around the Interior tonight. The clear skies will keep temperatures in the -20 to -40 range overnight. Some ice fog is expected across the Yukon Flats where the temperatures will be the coldest. Cloud cover will increase across the Interior early Friday morning. The flow aloft over the Interior will become more southerly for the weekend. This will allow temperatures south of the Yukon River to warn into the 20s by Sunday. Southerly gap winds will develop in the Alaska Range on Friday. By Saturday we expect wind gusts around 50 mph in the passes of the Alaska Range which will persist into Sunday.

West Coast and Western Interior: The west coast will receive a quick one-two punch Friday into the weekend. A front associated with a low in the western Bering will push into the Yukon Delta Friday evening and will continue to move north along the coast Saturday. A 962 mb low will move into Bristol Bay Friday evening. By Saturday morning this low will be over Nunivak Island. During the day the low will track towards St. Lawrence Island; however, there are still some differences in the exact track. The NAM has the low passing over St Lawrence Island Saturday afternoon while the GFS tracks the low a two hundred miles to the south of St. Lawrence Island. These systems are expected to bring expected to snow and stronger winds on Friday and Saturday for fro areas south of the Seward Peninsula and Saturday and early Sunday for areas from the Seward Peninsula north. Warmer air will move in aloft over the Yukon Delta tomorrow evening. This will cause snow to change over to freezing rain There is still some uncertainty in the exact placement of the heaviest snow minor differences in the track will impact where the heaviest snow will fall. At this time the heaviest snow is expected to fall in and near the Nulato Hills while the greatest risk for freezing rain and sleet remains in the Lower YK Delta. At this time 4 to 8 inches of snow is expected in the Nulato Hills with 2 to 4 inches expected elsewhere. Ice accumulations of a glaze to 5 hundredths of an inch are expected in the Yukon Delta Friday evening and Saturday. As the front moves north on Friday, south to southeast winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts to around 55 mph are expected to develop along the Norton Sound Coast and over St Lawrence Island, with the winds expected to continue into Saturday. Another system looks to move north along the coast on Monday.

North Slope and Brooks Range: Temperatures will remain seasonably cold for Friday, A warming trend will begin on Saturday as low pressure moves north along the West Coast. Southerly flow will support further warming into early next week. The strong southerly flow will cause strong strong southerly gap winds to develop in Alaska Range passes late Saturday into Sunday. A low moving north over the southern Chukchi Sea will cause strong easterly winds to develop along the Arctic Coast Saturday evening. These winds will continue into early Sunday.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . At this time the track of the storm system Friday and Saturday is expected to produce mostly offshore winds or wind directions over a relatively short fetch of open water which will limit the threat for coastal flooding, high surf and sea ice pushes onto shore. Coastal residents should however continue to monitor this situation for the latest forecasts on the storm and be prepared to take actions to protect property near the shore should the track of the storm change.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Heavy Freezing Spray Warning for PKZ210-PKZ220-PKZ225-PKZ230.

Gale Warning for PKZ210.

Small Craft Advisory for PKZ220-PKZ225.

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.
