Southcentral and Southwest Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Anchorage AK 436 PM AKDT Fri Jun 14 2024

.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA (Days 1 through 3)...

Summer has arrived to Southcentral, at least through early next week, with widespread upper 60s and lower 70s temperatures being achieved this afternoon. Talkeetna is currently sitting at 78 degrees and the observation in Bentalit has hit 80 degrees.

High pressure ridging in from the west and weak northerly flow aloft is allowing for clear skies and proper daytime heating. Cu fields have been percolating across the Copper River Basin, as well as the Susitna Valley to a lesser extent, with weak instability contributing to scattered showers and isolated to scattered wet thunderstorm chances. A current look at satellite shows a couple of storms attempting to move into the Copper River Basin from near the ALCAN border. Lightning is also noted south of Glennallen, west of the Richardson Hwy. Through this evening additional storms will be possible. Northeasterly steering flow will transport storms in a southwest direction before eventual loss of instability results in storms and showers dissipating.

Saturday will be somewhat of a repeat of Friday with little to no change in the weather pattern, but with the warmest temperatures of the year expected across Southcentral, as well as even higher thunderstorm chances. While the bulk of storms will form out over the Copper River Basin and Mat-Su Valleys, it's not out of the question that a stray storm drifts into the Anchorage Bowl, with additional storms developing over the Western Kenai Peninsula.
Into Sunday high pressure shifts directly atop the Copper River Basin. This will actually suppress thunderstorm chances for the Copper River Basin with the higher thunderstorm threat shifting westward into the Mat-Su. Weak northerly steering flow comes to an end, which will result in stationary storms and little propagation or movement of any storms that do develop.



.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHWEST ALASKA/BERING SEA/ALEUTIANS (Days 1 through 3)...

A ridge has built over Southwestern Alaska, promoting a weak northerly flow into the area. Upper-level support may provide enough energy to allow for some isolated thunderstorms to generate in the foothills of the Western Alaska Range and may move southwest into the Lower Kuskokwim Valley and Bristol Bay by Saturday. A low has stalled in the North Pacific south of Adak, pushing gusty southerly winds and light rain across the Central Aleutians. This will continue to bring rounds of rain showers and small craft winds to the Western/Central Aleutians through the end of the week. By Sunday afternoon, a similar convective pattern may set up in the eastern portions of Bristol Bay and the Lower Kuskokwim Valley. There is potential for Sunday to be another active convective day across eastern Southwest Alaska. The focus will be on how strong offshore flow will warm the area and advect the cells downstream off the foothills of the Western Alaska Range. Southwest Alaska will remain is this patten through the weekend and potentially into midweek next week.

.LONG TERM FORECAST (Days 4 through 7) Monday through Thursday...

A very active pattern on the Alaska Weather map as an upper level Arctic low spreads its influence across the North Slope into Interior Alaska through Thursday. A ridge remains across the Southern Interior, being squeezed between the Arctic low and a broad low stretching across the Aleutians and Gulf of Alaska through the period. This ridge is sufficient enough to support thermal surface troughs and raises the chances for convective activity. A number of weak perturbations are expected to slide through the pattern across the Southern portions of the state throughout the forecast.

Most of the concentrated weather remains in the North Pacific to the South of the Aleutians and Alaska Peninsula. Showers and locally breezy conditions begin in the Central and Eastern Aleutians and the Bering up to the Pribilofs beginning Monday.
Winds taper off late Monday. Showers will occur across the Southcentral Interior for late Monday. The Aleutians front continues its Eastward push over the Alaska Peninsula and Kodiak Island before spreading more rain over Southcentral, Prince William Sound and the Copper River Valley through midweek. Showers linger behind the front over the Aleutians and Bering.
Temperatures range from the 40s across the Aleutians warming across the Mainland into the 70s and possible low 80s over the Eastern Interior through the period. Thunderstorms are possible over most of the Eastern inland areas.

AVIATION

PANC...Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop near the Talkeetna Mountains late this afternoon and advect southward along/near Knik Arm. However, with more stable air over Cook Inlet, expect convection to diminish as it continues southward. The most likely impact for the terminal is some debris clouds in the mid to upper levels, with any ceiling that forms safely in the VFR category. There could be some brief gusts out of S-SW in the inflow into the convection, but winds will mostly stay light. Saturday looks like a repeat, with mostly clear skies for much of the day, then showers and thunderstorms drifting south from the Mat-Su later in the day. Generally expect more convection saturday, with a somewhat better chance that a high-based shower or thunderstorm reaches the vicinity of PANC.
