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

Afternoon water vapor imagery is doing a excellent job of showing mid and upper level features from the western Bering to the western Canada provinces
From west to east
A large, broad low sits spinning over the western Bering with several shortwaves rotating around it. A frontal boundary extends from near St. Lawrence Island southward through the southern AKPen (near Cold Bay) to a low over the far southwestern Gulf (south of Kodiak). A shortwave trough is also lifting north from the southern low and will be moving inland this evening. The front that has been stalled over the Gulf the past week is nearing the northern coast. Between the Bering and Gulf lows, a ridge is starting to amplify with a slug of moisture advecting north towards the central Aleutians. Near surface features indicate a surface low moving north over the Kenai and Cook Inlet and weak surface front near the coast resulting in showers for the the southern and eastern Kenai, Prince William Sound, and the northern Gulf coast. Coastal ridge has strengthened today and have already seen gap flow winds start to increase down into the Copper River Basin. Should also start to see increasing winds through Turnagain Arm, and an uptick in the Knik winds, by this evening.
Most of the showers will remain on the Gulf/Prince William Side, but may see a few light showers or sprinkles make it over the mountains.

The next several days will see continues benign weather with mild temperatures and slight chances to scattered showers to work up the Cook Inlet towards the Mat-Su Valley Monday into Tuesday as the Gulf low splits in two and the northern split lifts into the AkPen before rotating back south into towards the Kenai Peninsula.
However, the better chances for precipitation will remain on the eastern side of the Kenai and up into the Prince William Sound.

.SHORT TERM FORECAST SOUTHWEST ALASKA, THE BERING SEA/ALEUTIANS (Days 1 through 3: Today through Wednesday)...

An upper-level low in the North Pacific continues to linger south of the eastern Aleutians, producing shortwaves that will pass over Bristol Bay through Monday afternoon. The shortwaves will provide opportunities for showers throughout Southwest before a shortwave ridge builds over the area on Tuesday. Additionally, a chance of patchy fog over the southwest coast will be possible tonight.

Our main area of focus over the next few days will be on the Bering Sea, as our previously-discussed low is getting its act together north of Shemya. The system will continue to intensify through Monday afternoon as it slowly moves eastward over the western Aleutians. In the meantime, the occluded front from the low will surge eastward toward the central Aleutians and Pribilof Islands Monday night, producing widespread gale-force winds and storm-force gusts across the Bering. The front will slowly weaken as it moves closer to the western Alaska coastline Tuesday into Wednesday, while the core of the low will still produce gale-force winds through Tuesday night. With dominant southerly flow along the front, the main precipitation type will be rain or a rain/snow mix. The Pribilof Islands will start off as a rain/snow mix Monday morning before transitioning to rain by the afternoon and evening. There will be a brief period of snow Monday night/Tuesday morning as colder air wraps in behind the front.

By Tuesday afternoon, the front finally arrives on the west coast of Alaska and will linger over the area through Wednesday. The weakened front will still provide precipitation along the coastline, with small-craft winds likely around Bristol Bay and the Kuskokwim Delta. Locations near Bristol Bay and the Alaska Peninsula will most likely have a rain/snow mix or all rain, while the Kuskokwim Delta has the best opportunity to remain mostly snow. Any locations that do receive snowfall will get relatively low accumulations with this system.

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

A front extending across the Gulf from the Alaska Peninsula across Kodiak Island moves across the Gulf by Saturday. The upper level ridge over the Alaskan Interior weakens and falls back into British Columbia by Saturday. This allows a moderately strong low pressure center to advance from the Central Bering into the Western Gulf of Alaska by the end of the forecast period. Models are well clustered early but require the ensemble means to work out the changes in tracks and strength by late Saturday into Sunday. The Bering low picks up North Pacific moisture and forms a front that will extend across the Gulf for Saturday through Sunday.

Gusty Western Bering surface winds spreads over the Aleutians through Friday when they move out into the North Pacific. Locally heavy rainfall associated with a second front connected to the Bering low spreads over the Aleutians and Bering and Pribilofs through Friday, and into Southwest Alaska and the AKPEN and into the Gulf by the weekend. This front continues Eastward, bringing widespread rainfall over Southcentral Alaska late Saturday into Sunday. Rainfall is expected to remain nearer the coast, with higher elevations inland seeing a small amount of new precipitation. A new frontal system coming out of the Russian Far East extends its weather over the Western Aleutians and Bering late Saturday into Sunday.
