Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 414 PM AKST Fri Jan 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. Several low pressure centers will continue to move north over the West Coast through Sat bringing periods of heavy snow along the West Coast and Western Interior through Sat, with light snow persisting along the West Coast and SW Interior into Sun. Will see 2-4 inches more snow in most of that areas with another 6 inches along the east side of the Nulato Hills. The snow will mix with rain and freezing rain south of Nome to Kotzebue to Minchumina tonight and remain in the SW Interior through Sat. This areas of snow will spread east on Sat night and Sun and bring a chance of snow to the Eastern Interior then.

Brisk east winds and blowing snow will continue over the Arctic Coast through Sat, but visibility looks like it will remain above 1/2 mile.

Strong south winds through Alaska Range Passes will continue through Sat morning.

North winds developing from Point Hope the Bering Strait to St Lawrence Is on Sat will persist into Sun, and combined with falling snow will cause low visibility in blowing snow in those areas Sat into Sun.

Surface temperatures will remain well above normal through Sat, with temperatures cooling to normal Sun or Mon, then dropping below normal by the middle of next week.

Aloft . The long wave pattern consists of a deep trough over the Bering and NW Pacific and a strong ridge over the Ern Pacific and Mainland AK. That pattern will persist into the weekend, and allow a series of strong short wave trough to move north over Western Alaska through the weekend, and keep most of Nrn AK much warmer, winder and wetter than normal.

850 mb temperatures remain very warm through Sat, then see a strong cooling Sun and Mon, with more cooling next week.

Surface . A 997 mb near Wrangel Island will move to 200 NM northwest of Wrangel Island as a 1003 mb low by 3pm Sat, then continue moving northwest. High pressure over the Beaufort Sea will persist through Mon. These features are causing the easterly brisk winds along the Arctic Coast that will slowly taper off on Sun.

A weather front stretching from this low to Cape Lisburne to the Yukon Delta will persist through Sun. This is causing snow along the West Coast.

A low in the southeast Sering Sea will move to the Yukon Delta as a 1000 mb low by 3pm Sat, then move to Norton Sound as a 1007 mb low by 3pm Sun then weaken on Mon. A trailing front will move over the SW Interior on Sat, then stretch east to the Copper Basin on Sun and Mon. This will keep snow going along the West Coast and SW Interior into Sun. This will cause snow to mix with rain and freezing rain south of Nome to Kotzebue to Minchumina tonight and remain in the SW Interior through Sat. This area of snow will spread east with the front on Sat night and Sun and bring a chance of snow to the Eastern Interior Sun into Mon.

High pressure over the Copper Basin and southern Yukon Territory will weaken Sat PM. Winds through Alaska Range passes will continue through Sat AM as a result.

DISCUSSION. At 12Z, models verify well aloft. Models show similar solutions aloft through Sat, then the NAM and GFS maintain a deeper low aloft over the West Coast than the ECMF and Canadian models. Considering that this is a vertically stacked low, it should weaken slowly and thus prefer the NAM and GFS solutions aloft for Sat night through Mon.

850 mb temperatures remain very warm through Sat, then see a dramatic cooling to on Sun and Mon.

With precipitation, models show similar locations and amounts through Sun, then then NAM brings the precip north over the West Coast Sun night and Mon faster than the NAM ands GFS. Will use a blend of the GFS and NAM for precip amounts and location through Sun, then use the GFS for Sun night and Mon.

At the surface at 18Z, models all verify about 5 mb too weak on the low near Wrangel Is, and several mb too weak on the low in the Se Bering Sea, as well as several mb too weak on the high over the Copper Basin and southern Yukon Territory. Models in general agreement on surface pattern through Sat morning, and then the NAM and GFS deeper the low over the Northern Gulf of AK Coast much more than the ECMF and Canadian. Favor the GFS/NAM as it coincides with arctic air merging with the polar front. After Sat afternoon, the NAM keeps the low along the West Coast deeper than the GFS through Sun, which makes sense given the vertically stacked nature. By Mon models come back into better agreement. What we will do is use the NAM for surface winds through Mon, but bump up winds 3-5kt through Sat along the Arctic Coast to account for the stronger than modeled low near Wrangel Is, and keep strong south winds through the Alaska Range passes through Sat AM to account for the stronger high pressure there.

Bottom line for models is that we will use a blend of the NAM and GFS for precip, temps, clouds through Sun, then use the GFS for those same features Sun night and Mon. Will use the NAM for surface pres and winds through Mon, but bump up winds 3-5 kt along the Arctic Coast through Sat AM, and keep strong south winds through AK Range Passes through Sat PM.

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.
