Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 438 AM AKDT Fri Sep 18 2020

SYNOPSIS. A strong low tracking north along the West Coast is currently centered over Norton Sound. This system will move to Kotzebue Sound where it will remain stationary through Sunday bringing more rain for the western half of the state through Sunday and snow to higher elevations in the Brooks Range. Gap winds are ongoing through the passes and should continue through the early part of the day today for Isabel Pass, Delta Junction and Tanana Cross to Dot Lake. The peak of the winds have passed and are now on a decline for Windy Pass along the Parks Highway. As winds decrease in the Alaska Range and flow direction aloft turns more southwesterly, rain will become more likely for the Interior today and Saturday. Thereafter, Northern Alaska will remain in a wet and cooler pattern through the early part of next week.

DISCUSSION. 18/00Z 500mb models aloft and 18/06Z models at the surface initialized fairly well with minor differences. Good agreement in the short term with the exception of a surface low that will develop near Prudhoe Bay today. The NAM the last few runs has consistently been the outlier, so this solution will not be used for winds along the Arctic Coast. Synoptic scale-wise, models are in agreement on much of the state under a trough type pattern with weak short waves in the flow that will bring showery conditions into early next week and cooler temperatures.

A deep low is currently located over Norton Sound and will move NNE today where it will become stationary over Kotzebue Sound until weakening on Sunday morning. A low will develop today offshore from Prudhoe Bay and will drift west this evening and locate between Utqiagvik and Prudhoe Bay before exiting to the NE on Sunday. This will produce NE to eventually north winds for Utqiagvik, which could cause elevated surf and possible minor beach erosion. A shortwave trough and associated weather front will follow this system and drop down from the high Arctic early in the day Monday bringing more precipitation to the North Slope.

Central and Eastern Interior . Rain will become more likely today and Saturday as the flow aloft shifts from south to southwesterly, which favors moisture entering the area and not being blocked by the Alaska Range. Upslope areas north of Bettles could see 1.00 inch of precipitation from now through Saturday in the Brooks Range. Higher elevations will see snow, with the greatest accumulation occuring on Saturday. Winds through the Alaska Range are slowly trending downward. Winds will continue to gust to near 60 mph in Isabel Pass, 50 mph in Windy Pass, and near 40 mph for Delta Junction and Tanana Cross to Dot Lake through the afternoon today.

West Coast and Western Interior . Rain will continue through the weekend for the Coast and Interior. Winds will also increase out of the southwest as the storm tracks north of the Seward Peninsula. Most places will see 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rain through Saturday. Isolated areas south of the Brooks Range could see up to 0.75 inches through Saturday. The greatest amounts will occur along the southern slopes of the Brooks Range where 0.50 to over 1.00 inch of precipitation is expected through Saturday. The higher elevations of the Brooks Range will see precipitation in the form of snow where 1 to 3 inches with isolated areas seeing 3 to 6 inches both today and Saturday.

North Slope and Brooks Range . Precipitation will begin filtering north to the coast today. Winds along the coast are gusting out of the ENE and will change direction into the day today as a surface low develops near Prudhoe Bay. Expect gusty coastal winds through the weekend and areas of fog and low stratus. As colder air draws in, snow will mix with rain north of the Range Saturday into Sunday. Moisture will be mostly confined to the Brooks Range where higher elevations will see only snow. Atigun Pass along the Dalton Highway will see around 4 inches of snow today and Saturday and an additional 1 inch on Sunday.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . North onshore winds at Utqiagvik of 15 mph and gusts to 20 mph Sunday morning will begin to decrease and turn more westerly into the day on Sunday. The increase in NE winds today turning more north Saturday morning could cause elevated surf and possible minor beach erosion.

HYDROLOGY. Expect rises on all rivers west of Fairbanks and over the North Slope through the weekend, and steady or slowly falling rivers over the Interior from Fairbanks east through the weekend. No flooding is expected. 0.25 to 0.50 inch of rain today for most of the Western Interior. Some favored upslope locations such as, north of Bettles to Ambler could see 0.75 to 1.00 inch of precipitation today. An additional 0.50 to 1.00 inch of precipitation for southern slopes of the Brooks Range on Saturday. Higher elevations will see this fall as snow.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
