Southeast Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Juneau AK 238 PM AKDT Wed May 27 2020

SHORT TERM. /Through Fri night/ Rather quiet weather day across the panhandle as offshore flow has dominated the overall pattern. As a result most of the panhandle has few if any low clouds and temperatures have warmed up into the mid 50s to lower 60s. There is however a large shield of high clouds moving north over the southern panhandle at the moment ahead of the weakening front that is coming up from the south. That has curtailed the temperatures down there to the mid to upper 50s this afternoon.

Into tonight and Thu, main change was in bringing the higher clouds in faster this evening then what was there previously based on current obs and satellite imagery. The speed of the front itself and when rain will be moving in has not changed all that much. Front is still expected to shear apart over the area and it gets further from its parent low south of the gulf, and easterly flow will likely limit rainfall amounts in some areas. Any rainfall is not expected to reach the north until late Thu afternoon at the earliest, Thu evening at the latest, and even then some areas may not see any rain at all given the easterly flow still present over the area. Probability of precipitation kept around slight chance to chance given these limitations. There will be some wind with this front though it will mainly be for the SE gulf and southern panhandle and even then it will only be 25 kt or less.

A chance of rain lingers into Fri as more shortwaves from the SE and E rotate through. Though again easterly downslope flow still remains so some areas may not see any rain. Breezy conditions continue for the gulf and southern panhandle through the rest of the short range. Favored Gfs and Nam for updates today.

LONG TERM. /Friday through next Tuesday/ As of 10pm Tuesday. The low pressure south of the central gulf, discussed in the short term section, will remain fairly stationary through the weekend. This will keep majority of the northern panhandle under offshore flow and the southern panhandle under SE flow. Occasional bands of showers are expected to wrap around the low, mainly impacting the south, but some could extend northward. Timing of these bands, or whether they will even occur, is uncertain because models tend to spread out convection too far and therefore over- do POP, especially when moisture is coming from the east and has to make it over the Coast Mountains. For this reason, have kept POP on the lower end and below guidance for Friday into Saturday.

On Sunday the low starts to weaken to a trough and likely tracks northward across the central gulf. This increases the threat of rain as the offshore flow ends and shifts S to SW.

For the start of next week, models indicate a front moving into the area from the SW and a ridge over the inner channels and Coast Mtns. As a result, winds will be out of the south and rain looks likely but the strength of the front and assoc winds is to be determined.

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.
