Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 100 PM AKDT Thu Apr 22 2021

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will support pleasant weather across most of northern Alaska into the weekend. Temperatures will largely remain above average with mainly clear skies. A weakening front over southwest Alaska will produce scattered showers through tonight before gradually retreating into the Bering Sea. No major changes are expected through early next week

DISCUSSION.

Aloft 500 mb . A ridge axis extends across the eastern Pacific into the Gulf of Alaska, and culminates in a 5680m height maximum centered over Kotzebue. The high will weaken somewhat going into the weekend, though its influence will broaden eastward into the weekend. Guidance shows good agreement on the high drifting over the central Interior by Sunday and weakening to around 5570m.

Models . Despite decent agreement though Sunday, models have continued to display significant disagreement with an upcoming pattern change beginning Monday. A cold front associated with deep low pressure over the Northwest Territories in Canada will sweep southwestward and attempt to erode the ridge. While height and thus temperatures are expected to fall, we expect the ridge to maintain some structural integrity into the mid week, which is more in line with the GFS solutions versus the ECMWF, which aggressively advances the front into the eastern Interior.

North Slope and Brooks Range . Overcast associated with a weak boundary will move east of Kaktovik this evening, leaving mainly clear skies across the region. Light winds with a variable southerly component will be prevalent through the weekend, along with well above average temperatures. Temperatures will drop closer to normal Monday as a cold front approaches from the northeast.

West Coast and Western Interior . Dominant high pressure will continue to support mainly clear skies and above average daytime temperatures for much of the region. Scattered clouds from the Seward Peninsula south, as well as shower activity across the lower Yukon will dissipate through tonight as the high pressure expands southward.

Central and Eastern Interior . Warm daytime temperatures and clear skies will persist into the weekend, with some areas including Fairbanks, expected to reach into the 60s. Near normal low temperatures below freezing will help somewhat to moderate the accelerating thaw and breakup. A cold front will bring temperatures back to near normal early next week.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

FIRE WEATHER. High temperatures in the 50s and 60s across much of the Interior will continue into the weekend, along with relative humidity in the 20 to 30 percent range. Light east winds and cold overnight temperatures with good recovery are expected.

HYDROLOGY. Breakup will accelerate as high temperatures in the Central and Eastern Interior will generally be above climatological normals during the day, and near normal overnight. Smaller streams, creeks, and sloughs continue to open up as melt runoff enters the system, so caution should be used if you are near them. River Ice will break down much faster that lake ice as upwelling can erode the ice rapidly without being visible, so use extreme caution.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.
