Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 317 PM AKDT Sun Apr 14 2024

SYNOPSIS
Active weather pattern continues across Northern Alaska as a series of storms move east northeast. A low pressure system is expected to bring another round of strong southerly winds, snow, and blowing snow from St Lawrence Island and the Bering Strait north to Point Hope this afternoon into Monday. Another system will move out of the southern Bering and to the Y-K Delta Monday and the north along the West Coast through Tuesday.

DISCUSSION
Synoptic Analysis and Forecast...
Aloft, at 500 mb, a 482 dam (decameter) low remains near the North Pole. A shortwave stretching from the low south to Mackenzie Bay to a weakening 532 dam low offshore southeast Alaska slides eastward as a 560 dam ridge moves to the central Gulf of Alaska Monday afternoon. The ridge axis extends north out of the North Pacific this afternoon to Sand Point to Unalakleet to near Kotzebue Sound shifting east to stretch from the Gulf of Alaska to Glenallen to Circle to Kaktovik Monday afternoon and east of the AlCan border by Tuesday afternoon. Behind the ridge, a 532 dam low 100 NM north of Amchitka weakens as into an open wave as it moves to be near St Matthew Island by Monday afternoon. Broad upper level troughing extends southwest across eastern Russia from the low near the North Pole, with a strong shortwave extending across Wrangel Island to southeastern Chukotka by Monday afternoon. This shortwave absorbs the energy from the wave moving north of St Matthew Monday night. The shortwave slowly pushes east through Tuesday with the trough axis stretching from the low to Wrangel Island across the Gulf of Anadyr to east of Atka and south into the far North Pacific.

At the surface, a 1026 mb high over Mackenzie Bay moves east into the Northern Territories through Monday. A 990 mb low 500 NM northeast of Wrangel Island lifts north towards the pole through Tuesday. A 1000 mb low pushes offshore the Chukotsk Peninsula tonight to be 175 NM southeast of Wrangel Island Monday morning and then tracks northeast along the western Arctic Coast to be 75 NM north of Wainwright Monday afternoon at 1003 mb and 375 NM north of Kaktovik Tuesday morning, continuing northeast through Tuesday. A 992 mb low 100 NM north of Amchitka quickly moves northeast to be 75 NM southeast of St Matthew Island Monday afternoon, to the Bering Strait Tuesday morning as a 996 mb low and the north of the Arctic Coast by late Tuesday. A 1002 mb low 25 NM northwest of St Lawrence Island Tuesday morning will weaken as it moves over St Lawrence Island by Wednesday morning. Weak troughing will persist over the Eastern Bering Tuesday.

Models...
The 14/12Z models initialized well against the 12Z RAOBS and surface obs and are continuing the trend of better agreement in the short term with the overall synoptic pattern. Models are better clustered in both placement and strength, leading to a bit more confidence in wind and precip forecast for the West Coast and Western Interior. That being said there is still differences in wind speeds with the Bering low Monday and Tuesday, primarily over the Y-K Delta and north to the Seward Peninsula. Deterministic GFS is very robust with winds in this area, while the NAM is a bit lighter and the Canadian still a bit lighter. Puzzled over exactly how strong the wind and wind gusts were going to be for the southern Seward Peninsula and Norton Sound area as that was going to be the deciding factor for winter weather advisory or winter storm warning issuance. After examining ensembles and considering the deterministic models, kept wind gusts for these two areas below 60 mph. Used the inherited forecast as a base and blend in the Canadian and NAM for the West Coast winds as well as NAM and NAMNest for the winds in the Brooks and Alaska Ranges.
Nudged to AKSREF for pops to account for some higher pops for the West Coast and Western Interior.

North Slope and Brooks Range...
A low moving northeast off the Chukotsk Peninsula will drag a front across the region into Monday, bringing another round of snow, blowing snow, and gusty winds, especially to the Northwest Arctic Coast and Brooks Range. South to southwest winds increase to 20 to 35 mph for the western and northwest Arctic coast with gusts to 50 near Point Hope and Cape Lisburne. South winds of 15 to 25 mph anticipated Monday for Utqiagvik. These winds combined with falling snow will produce areas of blowing snow, reducing visibility to one half mile or less at times, visibility will be reduced to a quarter mile or less at times near Point Hope.
Further east, drier conditions are expected and south to southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph will prevail. In the Brooks Range, southerly flow ramps up Monday into Tuesday with sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts of 40 to 50 mph. As southerly flow becomes established temperatures trend upwards, with highs in the 20s and 30s Monday and Tuesday.

West Coast and Western Interior...
Strong southerly winds, snow, and blowing snow begin to develop this afternoon and continue into Monday as a low pressure system moves out of Russia and impacts St Lawrence Island, the Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea Coast, and the Noatak Valley. Gusts of 30 to 50 mph are The strongest winds and lowest visibility are expected in the Bering Strait and near Red Dog and Kivalina from tonight into Monday. Another low moving across the Bering Monday and north along the West Coast through Tuesday will bring yet another round of strong winds, snow, blowing snow, and a rain snow mix. Strong southerly wind gusts develop from the Seward Peninsula south with gusts of 30 to 50 mph. Snow totals from this afternoon through Tuesday night range from 3 to 5 inches in the Y-K Delta to 5 to 7 inches on the southern Seward Peninsula coast to 6 to 12 inches from Noatak to Red Dog Mine.

Central and Eastern Interior...
Pretty quiet across the Central and Eastern Interior the next couple of days. A front moving out of eastern Russia may clip the northern half of the Interior tonight into early Monday morning with most snow remaining north of Beaver. Snow accumulations tonight through Monday generally two inches or less.
West to southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph expected over the Interior summits through Tuesday. Southerly Chinook flow develops Monday in the Alaska Range with gusts up to 50 mph expected at this time. There is some model disagreement with the strength of the Chinook at this time, so winds may be higher. Temperatures trend upwards this week with highs in the upper 30s north to lower to mid 50s by Tuesday.

Extended Forecast Days 4-7...An Arctic low remains in place in the high Arctic this week while an upper level ridge axis becomes situated over the Eastern Interior and the Yukon. An upper level low develops over the Gulf of Anadyr with troughing extending south of the Aleutians. This low lifts northeast through the Bering Strait Thursday.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4...Sea levels 2 to 4 feet above normal along the West Coast Monday into Tuesday could cause water to push on top of the ice near shore.
