Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 536 AM AKDT Sun Jun 13 2021

SYNOPSIS. A warming trend in temperatures is expected for the Interior over the next few days as a ridge builds over the area. The warmest temperatures so far this season are expected Monday and Tuesday across much of the Interior. Thunderstorms will also be an issue today and to a lesser extent on Monday across the Interior. A weather front will move over the West Coast today, bringing wet conditions that will persist into Tuesday. The North Slope will see rain showers today into Tuesday, mainly from Utqiagvik east. Onshore flow will bring fog and low stratus to areas along the coast.

DISCUSSION. The 13/00 UTC model suite generally initialized well when compared to observational data. The models are in generally good agreement with the synoptic scale pattern through the middle of the week. There are still some slight differences in the placement and strength of the ridge that is expected to build over the Interior. We did not make any changes to the temperature forecast in the short term this morning. For the winds we went with a blend of the NAM and GFS. This blend strengthened winds over the Bering Sea with the front coming up today.

Aloft, at 500 mb, a 549 dam low over the Northwest Territories of Canada will continue to move to the north today. A strong ridge will start to build into the Interior from the southwest today and will continue to strengthen and build northward on Monday and Tuesday. This ridge looks to be the dominate weather feature across northern Alaska this week, although the models still have differences in placement which amplify as you go later in the week. A 538 dam low will move northward over the Gulf of Anadyr tonight and will continue northward across the Chukotsk Peninsula on Monday before continuing northward across Chukchi Sea. This system will bring rainfall to the West Coast today into early Tuesday.

Central and Eastern Interior . With the ridge building in, we expect a warming trend in temperatures through Tuesday. Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be the warmest seen so far this season, with spots seeing highs in the lower 80s. The Interior will see isolated thunderstorms today, which could cause locally heavy downpours, small hail and gusty winds. With the ridge strengthening on Monday and Tuesday the potential for thunderstorms will diminish, and will primarily be confined to the far southeast Interior. Winds today will generally be light (with the exception of brief periods of locally gusty winds due to showers or thunderstorms). Southerly winds will pick up somewhat near Alaska Range passes on Monday.

North Slope and Brooks Range . High pressure persists over the Arctic Coast. Satellite imagery this morning shows a wides area of fog over the Beaufort Sea Coast. Many stations have been reporting ceilings of 200 feet and visibility of a quarter mile or less. This area of fog will likely be an issue through the morning, with additional fog expected again tonight along the coast. A general warming trend in temperatures is expected through Tuesday as the upper level ridge builds in. Some spots along the Beaufort Sea Coast will see temperatures reach 60 degrees on Tuesday after southerly winds develop. We will see some showers today along the Chuckchi Sea Coast and in the Western Brooks Range. Rainfall over the Chukchi Sea Coast and the Western Brooks Range will pick up for Monday night and Tuesday as a front moves over the area. Easterly winds are expected along the coast through Monday. As a front pushes northeast on Monday night and Tuesday, winds will turn to southerly and eventually westerly. Areas along the Chukchi Sea Coast could will westerly winds with gusts of 20 to 30 mph on Tuesday.

West Coast and Western Interior . A front associated with a low moving north through the Bering Sea will bring rainfall to areas along the coast today into early Tuesday. Showers will push into the Western Interior during the day on Tuesday as the front pushes off to the northeast. With the rainfall and cloudy skies we expected below normal temperates for the West Coast through Tuesday. The Western Interior will see a warming trend over the next several days as an upper level ridge builds over the area.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

Extended forecast for days 4 to 7 . The extended period begins on Wednesday with a ridge stretching from east to west across the Interior. The west coast will see improving conditions on Wednesday as the ridge over the Interior starts to build to the west. The ridge looks to remain in place over northern Alaska in some form into next weekend although there is still some uncertainty in the details. A couple of lows moving into the Gulf of Alaska have the potential to send shortwave from east to west across the southern Interior along the south side of the ridge late this week. This has the potential to bring showers and thunderstorms, although there is still a lot of model uncertainty in the details of this.

FIRE WEATHER. Thunderstorms will be a concern again today. Today, widely scattered thunderstorms are anticipated from Fairbanks east, with isolated thunderstorms elsewhere over the Interior. Thunderstorms activity will be limited on Monday and Tuesday as an upper level ridge builds over the area, although some isolated thunderstorms are still possible in the far southeastern Interior. This ridge will also cause a warming trend in temperatures over the next few days. Temperatures early this will be the warmest so far this season, with many locations in the Central and Eastern Interior seeing highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s on Monday and Tuesday with minimum relative humidity values below 30 percent. Breezy southerly winds near Alaska Range passes may bring near Red Flag conditions on Monday afternoon, although the strongest winds right now look to be after peak heating on Monday evening. Overnight Relative Humidity recovery will be good tonight, becoming poor for Monday and Tuesday nights.

HYDROLOGY. Yukon River in Canada continues to run near bankfull, but the gage at Eagle continues to slowly fall, so no issues at this time. We will be watching it closely as heavy showers will be in the area through the weekend. Most interior rivers are showing some diurnal rises and falls as snowmelt continues at higher elevations, but they continue to run below normal summer levels. Breakup continues in the Arctic with no known issues. For the latest river information go to www.weather.gov/aprfc.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.
