Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 624 AM AKST Tue Feb 20 2024


SYNOPSIS
Moist and warm southerly flow over Alaska will continue into Wed, then turn southwest and cool on Thu, then become westerly and much cooler by weekend. This means the current much warmer than normal pattern over Northern AK will continue into Wed, then cool to near normal by the weekend.

Blizzard conditions over NW AK will continue into tonight.

Strong southerly chinook winds blowing across the Alaska Range will continue into Wed.

There will be significant snow over Western Alaska and the South Slopes of the AK Range today, that will spread to the North Slope and Central Interior tonight, and then across the Eastern Interior on Wed. There will be a chance of mixed precip SE of McGrath to Huslia to Ft Yukon today. Western Alaska can expected 4 to 8 inches of snow through tonight from McGrath to Galena to Ambler.
Expect snow 2-4 inches along the South Slopes of the AK Range and today into Wed, with 2-4 inches over the Central Interior and North Slope tonight into Wed, and with several inches over the Eastern Interior.

Another batch of snow moves into SW Alaska on Wed, over the West Coast and Western Interior on Wed night, and then northeast to NW Alaska and the Central and Eastern Interior on Thu. This will bring another 2-4 inches of snow to the West Coast and Western Interior on Wed into Thu.

Aloft... The long wave pattern consists of a deep long wave trough over NE Russia, the Sea of Okhotsk and Bering Sea, and a long wave ridge over Alaska and NW Canada. This pattern will hold in place through Wed, then become progressive through the end of the week as a series of strong short wave troughs move from the Bering Sea NE across Alaska digging into the ridge and pulling the long wave trough east over Mainland Alaska by the weekend. This means the current much warmer than normal pattern over Northern AK will continue into Wed, then cool to near normal by the weekend.

Moist southerly flow over Alaska will continue into Wed then turn southwest on Thu. This will cause significant precipitation over Western Alaska and South Slopes of the AK Range today, that will spread to the North Slope and Central Interior tonight, and then across the Eastern Interior on Wed. Another batch of precip moves into SW Alaska on Wed, over the West Coast and Western Interior on Wed night, and then northeast to NW Alaska and the Central and Eastern Interior on Thu.

Surface...
A 978 mb low 80 NM southwest of Nome will move to 100 NM west of Kivalina as a 984 mb low by 3am Wed and then dissipate. A warn front extending east from this low will move to Point Lay to 60 NM south of Barter Island by 3am Wed, and then weaken in place.
A cold front extending from the low to Bristol Bay will move move to Point Lay to McGrath by 3am Wed, then by 3pm Wed with a 998 mb triple point low 80 NM south of Prudhoe Bay with the front stretching south to Northway, then the cold front stretching east of the ALCAN Border Wed night.

A strong weather front in the southwest Bering Sea will move to the Northern Bering Sea and the Yukon Delta by 3pm Wed. This will bring possible blizzard conditions to the YK Delta Wed AM.

DISCUSSION
Models initialize well aloft at 12Z. Models show similar solutions aloft through 3pm Wed, then see slight differences in short wave details Wed night and Thu. Favor a blend of models for features aloft through Wed, then a blend of the GFS and NAM for Wed night and Thu.

Strong chinook winds blowing across the Alaska Range today will decrease slightly late tonight and early Wed, then increase again late Wed into early Thu before ending Thu.

850 mb temperatures range from +2C just north of the Alaska Range to -10C over the West Coast and Brooks Range and -18C along the Arctic Coast. Above freezing 850 mb temps spread north to Bettles and Ft Yukon this afternoon then move east of the ALCAN Border on Wed. Cooler temperatures spread east over Western AK on Wed and over the Interior on Thu, with temps cooling all of Northern AK Fri into the weekend.

With precipitation, models show similar areal coverage through Wed with slight differences for Wed night and Thu. Models differ significantly on amounts today through Wed. Will use a blend of models for areal coverage and a blend of the NAM and GFS for amounts. Highlight include: Snow over Western Alaska today into tonight with 4 to 8 inches from McGrath to Galena to Ambler. There will be a chance of mixed precip SE of McGrath to Huslia to Ft Yukon today. Expect snow along the South Slopes of the AK Range today into Wed with 2-4 inches expected with mixed precip possible. Expect snow to spread to the North Slope and Central Interior tonight, and then across the Eastern Interior on Wed, with 2-4 inches over the Central Interior and North Slope with several inches over the Eastern Interior. Another batch of snow moves into SW Alaska on Wed, over the West Coast and Western Interior on Wed night, and then northeast to NW Alaska and the Central and Eastern Interior on Thu. This will bring another 2-4 inches of snow to the West Coast and Western Interior on Wed into Thu.

At the surface at 06Z, models verify well. Models show similar solutions through 3pm Wed, then see slight differences through Thu. Will use a blend of the NAM and Canadian models for surface features and winds through Thu. Highlights are: South winds gusting 60 mph along the Alaska Range through Wed morning, then again Wed eve into early Thu. SE winds gusting 50 mph near Delta Junction through Wed AM, then again Wed Evening into Thu morning. East winds gusting 40 to 50 mph over NW AK from Point Hope to Point Lay through Wed AM. East winds 20 mph gusting to 40 mph along over the Kobuk Valley and NW AK and over Dalton Highway summits decreasing tonight. East winds 30 mph gusting to 50 mph along the Arctic Coast from Wainwright to Barter Island developing this evening and continuing into Wed, then decreasing slightly Wed night.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4...None.
