Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 140 PM AKDT Tue Oct 19 2021

SYNOPSIS. A low near St Lawrence Island will continue to weaken as the associated weather front stalls the the West Coast tonight. Strong pressure gradient will hold on over the Chukchi Sea with strong northeast winds. The strong winds combined with light snow this evening and into tomorrow will produce low visibilities in blowing snow. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for the Eastern Arctic Coast. The ongoing Tanana Valley Jet will continue to produce winds gusting around 40 mph around Delta Junction and 30 mph in Nenana into this evening. As the Tanana Valley Jet diminishes this evening, strong gap winds will also develop late this evening with gusts around 50 mph in passes west of the Tok Cutoff.

DISCUSSION. Models . The 19/12z model suite initialized well against the surface analysis as well as upper air observations with the exception of the deep low currently rolling through the Western Aleutians. Same can be said of verification at 18z with the entire model suite continuing to struggle with the depth, position, and track of the deep low in the Western Aleutians. The models continue to struggle with the position, track and strength of this low into the weekend. At this time all the models continue to rapidly deepen the low as it moves east along the Aleutian Islands and then weaken it as it moves into the northern Gulf of Alaska. This track will limit coastal impacts for Northern Alaska with the exception of minor elevated water levels along the northern coastline of St Lawrence Island Friday and Saturday as the low pushes south and east producing sustained northerly to northeasterly winds over St Lawrence Island.

Aloft . At 500 hpa ridging continues over eastern Alaska and the Yukon while a broad trough continues over the West Coast and Eastern Bering Sea. This trough will push east into Western Interior as a ridge builds into the Central and Eastern Bering Sea on Thursday and into the West Coast and Western Interior Thursday and Friday. A strong upper level low will push east along the Aleutians Friday and into Saturday and provide a favorable upper level environment for development of the deep surface low forecasted to move along the Aleutian Islands Friday and Saturday.

Surface . A 978 mb low currently over St Lawrence Island will stall in place and weaken through Wednesday and then will slowly drift to the north through the Bering Strait by Thursday. A weak trough over the southern interior will push north tonight as a weak high pressure system over the Copper River Basin moves north into the Interior tonight. The low pressure system mentioned previously that the models are having trouble with strength and track pushes northeast into the Western Aleutian Islands as a 974 to 980 mb low on Wednesday evening. The low then pushes east northeast into the Southern Bering Sea as a 964 to 950 mb low on Thursday morning and deepens rapidly to the 949 mb to 941 mb range over the Central Bering Sea Thursday evening. The low then begins to fill and move southeast to be located 150 nm north of Cold Bay by Friday morning. The low continues to weaken slowly and moves into the northwestern Gulf of Alaska Friday evening.

Arctic Coast and Brooks Range . East winds with increasing clouds and chances of snow will continue through this evening. Expect visibilities to drop in blowing snow this evening. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for for the Eastern Arctic Coast including Prudhoe Bay and Barter Island. Visibility will drop to around one half mile or less at times from Nuiqsut east beginning this evening and continuing into Wednesday morning. Winds increasing to 25 to 35 mph gusting to 45 mph by late this evening and will continue into Wednesday morning before diminishing. Highs will be in the 20s with lows in the teens.

West Coast and Western Interior . Strong winds and precip continue to diminish behind the front that pushed into the Western Interior this afternoon and will stall there and weaken into Wednesday. The transition from snow to rain will continue along the coast from the Bering Strait south this afternoon and evening. Inland areas east of Marshall will see mainly snow with just a chance of the snow mixing with rain this evening. Precipitation will remain mainly west and southwest of Galena. Winds from the Bering Strait south will diminish this evening and overnight as the weather front stalls over the Western Interior. High temperatures from the Seward Peninsula south in the upper 30s and lower 40s, while lows will be in the upper 20s to mid 30s, to the north highs in the 20s and lows in the teens. Inland highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s.

Central and Eastern Interior . Remains relatively quiet across the Interior this evening and into Wednesday. Clouds continue to increase over the Interior with flurries possible at times especially north and west of Fairbanks. The ongoing Tanana Valley Jet will continue to produce winds gusting around 40 mph around Delta Junction and 30 mph in Nenana into this evening. As the Tanana Valley Jet diminishes this evening, strong gap winds will also develop late this evening with gusts around 50 mph in passes west of the Tok Cutoff. Expect lows in the teens and 20s above with highs in the mid 20s to around 40.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 1 and 4 . Elevated surf will continue on the outer coastlines through Thursday with wave runup of up to 2 feet above the normal high tide line on south and southwest facing coastlines. Elevated water levels are possible along the northern coast of St Lawrence Island Friday as winds shift to the north through the Bering Strait and Northern Bering Sea behind the deep low forecasted to push into the Southeastern Bering Sea.
