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

Model agreement remains poor as of this afternoon with the track of the next low into the Gulf Monday and Tuesday. Beginning tonight, a trough swings across Kodiak Island, eventually developing into a surface low somewhere over the northern Gulf by late Monday. The latest runs of GFS and ECMWF remain the slowest and also in the best agreement, keeping the low further south. The Canadian NH is faster and further east, while the NAM is also faster and substantially further north. Interrogating bufkit soundings shows a surprisingly small difference in storm total snow across Anchorage despite placement and timing differences of the low, with snow amounts of roughly an inch through Tuesday.

Greater confidence exists in stronger southeasterly flow over the Gulf coast into western Prince William Sound. Both Whittier and Portage could see upward of 6 to 10 inches of fresh snow with lighter amounts of 2 to 4 inches for Seward and Cordova through Tuesday night. Though even these amounts are subject to change depending on the final track of the Gulf low the next 24 hours. A more organized low moves into the Gulf on Tuesday night into Wednesday with the potential to move into Southeast Alaska by late Wednesday.

The most intriguing area to keep an eye will be the city of Kodiak. While light snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are likely to fall through Tuesday morning, the arrival of the second and more organized low through midweek will see the potential for heavier snow. More details to follow on Monday.

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

The forecast remains on track for the the unsettled pattern to continue into Tuesday. The front that brought snow and blowing snow, as well as reduced visibilities yesterday and earlier this morning is finally winding down with leftover snow showers in the Kuskokwim Delta and interior Bristol Bay. There is no rest for the weary though as another front is fast approaching the coast from the Bering Sea. This front will spread snow over mainland southwest from west to east tonight through early Monday morning.
The most accumulation with this system will occur across the northern Bristol Bay. Areas from Dillingham to the north and west have the best chance at seeing 6 inch accumulations with lighter accumulations elsewhere. Snow tapers off from west to east mid-day Monday through the afternoon hours. A Special Weather Statement has been issued for the Kuskokwim Delta and Bristol Bay zones to address the upcoming active weather.

Colder air filters in behind this system with enhanced snow showers and gusty winds tracking across the Bering and the Aleutian Chain. Another weaker system approaches the Kuskokwim Delta coast Monday afternoon into the evening. This system will mainly affect the Kuskokwim Delta coast but could also clip the Western Capes of Bristol Bay. There stands the potential to be brief blowing snow and possible visibility reductions since temperatures will be colder as the system arrives; this is particularly true for the Kuskokwim Delta coast and Nunivak Island. The trends with this system today are to keep it a weak and open wave as opposed to winding up into a compact low pressure system.

By Tuesday, the low in the Bering continues tracking northward towards the vicinity of the Gulf of Anadyr while a North Pacific low tracks close to the proximity of the Aleutians and southern Alaska Peninsula (AKPEN). More light snow and potential blowing snow looks to be in the cards for the coast on Tuesday. There is still some uncertainty on how far north the North Pacific low will track in proximity to the Chain and AKPEN. Precipitation amounts could trend upward or downward depending on the ultimate track of this system.

A ridge builds across the central Aleutian Chain Tuesday morning and progresses eastward to the AKPEN and coastal southwest, yielding somewhat of a break in the active weather for Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the western Aleutians contend with another low pressure system with more snow showers for Wednesday. A shortwave lifts northeastward around the western Bering trough with a low pressure spinning up in the North Pacific around the central Aleutians for Wednesday. There is a lot of uncertainty with the position and track of this low. Regardless, snow, rain/snow mix, and gusty winds look likely along the Chain and to the southern AKPEN Wednesday into Wednesday evening.

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

Active weather on tap for the much of Alaska out through the Aleutian chain with multiple low pressure systems pushing across the area through the long term forecast. Starting off for Southwest Alaska, a deepening low situated north of the St.
Lawerence Ssland will gradually open through Thursday afternoon, sending a surge of increased winds and cooler temps down the Lower Kuskokwim Delta and Bristol Bay coastline and the Lower Kuskokwim Valley through the weekend. Meanwhile, at the same time, a low pressure system will skirt along the southern fringes of the central Aleutians/ North Pacific on Thursday morning before being absorbed into a further strengthing low within the Gulf of Alaska by Thursday night. Further West, a well developed low and front should approach the Western Aleutians and Bering by Friday afternoon, with anticipated widespread gusty winds and areas of gale force gusts overspreading the Western Aleutians by Friday into Saturday.

AVIATION

PANC...VFR conditions and light northerly winds are expected to prevail overnight. Ceilings will gradually lower tonight, dropping from about 10 kft this afternoon down to about 4-5 kft by 12Z. A weak system may bring some light snow to the terminal Monday morning, but any snowfall will be light with ceilings and visibility not expected to fall below MVFR. Better chances for light snow moving into the terminal look to be later in the day Monday as a stronger upper level system approaches.
