Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 401 AM AKST Fri Dec 6 2019

SHORT TERM. Upper ridge will build strongly into the Gulf today and shift slowly eastward through Saturday night. By late Saturday night this ridge axis will be directly over the Panhandle.

One or two slugs of low to mid level WAA and isentropic ascent will affect mainly the northern Panhandle over the next 48 hours. The first will be this afternoon and will be accompanied by a weak surface wave which will lift into the northern Gulf this evening and die in place. As the ridge axis slides eastward Saturday into Saturday night, stronger WAA will commence for the NE Gulf and northern third of the Panhandle. Kept precipitation chances across the north today and increased precipitation chances for Saturday and Saturday night as a result. Stubborn cold air continues to hang on over the far northern channels where snow is still being reported. Surface gradient should continue to allow cold air to hang on through at least Saturday in these areas and so expect generally 1 to 2 inches of new snow accumulation in the Haines/Skagway areas today and perhaps again on Saturday before the cold air gets scoured out for good.

Winds over the inside waters will be on the downward trend today as the gradient relaxes. As stronger low level SW flow impinges on the NE and E Gulf coast tonight and Saturday, an increase in the winds over the outside Gulf waters is expected as a weak barrier jet takes shape. For now kept things in the 25 to 30 kt range for the immediate offshore waters.

Southern areas will have a relatively nice end to the week and early weekend as low and mid level ridging leads to weak offshore flow.

LONG TERM. / Sunday to Friday as of 10 pm Thursday / Ridge axis aloft at 500 mb is pushed east of the Southeast Alaska panhandle by Sunday night but the upper trough to the west is trying to nose further into the western gulf. As it does a long southerly fetch aloft will move to the eastern half of the gulf which will lead to increased onshore flow of warm and moist air.

The flow pattern will have some rain for the central gulf coast, perhaps over to the Icy Bay-Yakutat Bay region on Sunday and as the ridge shifts eastward the increase in clouds over at least the northern panhandle will happen along with a small bump in rain changes. Mid to long range model solutions still hanging on to the idea that a significant frontal band will spread in around Tuesday with a followup around Thursday. Will need to keep a watch and monitor this situation as it develops.

With the overall southerly flow pattern, temperatures should remain above average for the season. And no strong wind events are expected through the week.

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.
