Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 418 AM AKST Fri Mar 5 2021

SYNOPSIS . Weather front that blasted the West Coast and Northwest Arctic Coast yesterday has weakened and is moving inland. The front will stall to the west of Fairbanks today with some remnants of the front moving through the Central Interior Saturday. Snowfall out west today will range up to 3 inches, while the Fairbanks area will see up to an inch of snow Saturday. Snow in the Western Arctic will taper off this morning as the front weakens and the low over Siberia moves west. Temperatures slightly warmer today than yesterday, then cooling through Sunday. Another strong front will move to the West Coast Sunday and Monday bringing potential for Blizzard conditions with strong winds and heavy snow in most of the coastal areas.

DISCUSSION.

Models . The 05/00Z solutions continue the trend of good agreement through the short term. Solutions initialized well against the 04/06Z surface analysis with the low over Chukotka 1 to 2 mb deeper than most solutions. Precipitation solutions are very similar in the short term so will lean toward an equal blend. Solutions are similar in handling the leeside troughing and gradient across the Brooks and Alaska Ranges today so will also use a general blend to handle them.

Aloft . At 500 hpa . Ridging over the eastern 1/3 of the state today with a 524 dam high over Central this morning will be hang on with the high moving north over Kaktovik this evening. Ridging will hang on over the Upper Tanana Valley with a 520 dam high over Burwash Landing YT. Troughing to the west has slowed its movement to the east and will stall today over the Western Interior as the associated 474 dam low over Chukotka moves northwest to 300 nm west of Wrangel Island by Saturday morning at 470 dam. The low is currently just north of the western Gulf of Anadyr with the trough extending southeast over Nunivak Island and Sand Point. By Saturday morning the trough will lie from the low over the Western Chukchi Sea, and Bering Strait to a 516 dam low over southern Kodiak Island. Saturday afternoon the trough will lie from the low west of Wrangel Island over Point Hope to Ambler to Nikolai to a 521 dam low near Homer. Weak ridging will persist over the Central and Eastern Interior with a 523 dam high near McCarthy. A 516 dam low will develop over the Central Beaufort Sea today and move southwest over Observation Point NWT tonight, then over Banks Island Saturday morning at 510 dam At 850 hpa. The -20C isotherm is north of the Arctic Coast, and is being pulled around the low over Chukotka toward the West Coast. The -10C isotherm has been pushed north over the Central and Eastern Interior in advance of the troughing to the west today, but temperatures will cool tonight as cooler air is wrapping around the low over Chukotka and the -20 isotherm will push over the West Coast later today.

Surface . The strong front that moved to the West Coast yesterday has moved inland and weakened. A 991 mb low has developed along the front near Kodiak Island. Troughing persists over the Arctic coast this morning with high pressure persisting over the high Arctic. The strong slow associated with the front has moved north in Chukotka and weakened to 975 mb. High pressure continues over the Upper Porcupine and Upper Yukon Flats with a 1008 mb high near Beaver. Leeside troughing north of the ranges will weaken by mid afternoon. The front will continue to stretch out and dissipate as the low in Chukotka moves to 300 nm west of Wrangel Island. High pressure will push back south over the Eastern Arctic Coast as a 1034 mb high moves north of the Beaufort Sea. The low near Kodiak Island will move southeast in the Northeast Pacific. A weaker front moving around the low in Chukotka will move to the Eastern Bering Sea Saturday morning with a second, stronger, front following shortly behind it. The second front will bring another round of strong winds and heavy snow to the West Coast Sunday and Monday.

Arctic Coast and Brooks Range . Trough over the coast will weaken today and pull back to the northwest. Snow tapering off and winds diminishing on the northwest coast. High pressure will push back over the coast from Utqiagvik east today and tonight. Generally high clouds over the area today with east winds 5 to20 mph. Temperatures steady or slightly cooler than the last couple days.

West Coast and Western Interior . Conditions are improving rapidly along the coast, but expect some snow showers this morning. A weaker system moving to the coast Saturday morning will spread some light snow to the coast, mainly south of the Bering Strait. Snowfall amounts up to 3 inches can be expected. Temperatures will be in the teens above for most areas today, then cool tonight as cold air is pulled around the low into the area. A strong weather front associated with a low moving north in Siberia will move to the West Coast late Sunday bringing strong winds, spreading heavy snow up the coast, and potential for widespread Blizzard conditions. Expect strong south winds to 30 mph gusting to 50 mph moving to St Lawrence Island early Sunday. The winds will spread to the West Coast by Sunday evening and will be from the east and southeast at 20 to 35 mph gusting to 50 mph locally. Heavy snow will move to the Seward Peninsula, Norton Sound, and the Lower Yukon Delta Sunday. The heaviest snow will be in the Bendeleben Mountains on the Seward Peninsula, and the Nulato Hills. Snowfall amounts vary in the model solutions at this time, but range up to one foot in those areas. Most locations can expect 2 to 4 inches of snow Sunday night.

Central and Eastern Interior . Some cloudy conditions and light snow west of Manley Hot Springs, with partly cloudy to clear skies to the east. Slightly warmer temperatures today, and tonight as the warm air that is being pushed into the area slowly moderates. Leeside troughing will weaken this afternoon and winds near the Alaska Range passes will diminish. North winds in the White and Ray mountains north of Fairbanks will remain gusty to around 20 mph. The remnants of the front out west will move through the area early Saturday with potential for up to 1 inch of snow in the Tanana Valley and White mountains.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

Extended forecast for days 4 to 7 . A strong front on the West Coast Monday will move slowly across the state and into the Central Interior by midweek then dissipate. High pressure will persist over the Arctic with troughing developing over the Arctic plain and coast. High pressure will hang on over the Eastern Interior, Upper Tanana Valley, and Upper Yukon Flats through Tuesday, then slide east as the front moves into the area.
