Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 349 PM AKST Sat Dec 7 2019

SYNOPSIS. A pair of systems will keep weather pattern active for the west coast through Tuesday night. The first system is currently moving north along the coast while the second system will move in on Monday. A warming trend will continue tonight and Sunday across the Interior. A weather system will move north across the Interior on Sunday, bringing a quick shot of precipitation. The Arctic Coast will see increased winds tonight as a front moves over the area resulting in blowing snow.

DISCUSSION. Overall, the models initialized well and are in decent agreement out through the weekend. Thereafter, the models all depict a strong low moving through the Bering Sea Monday into Tuesday; however, there is still some disagreement in the strength and track of this system.

Central and Eastern Interior: Cloud cover associated with a low in the Bering Sea continues to push to the north today. This has caused temperatures to warm across the Interior. A trough on the north side of the Alaska Range has caused strong gap winds to develop in the Alaska Range along with strong easterly winds to develop in areas that typically see Tanana Valley Jet winds. Southerly winds with gusts of 60 to 65 mph will persist in the Alaska Range into the day on Sunday before weakening Sunday afternoon, while easterly winds with gusts to around 50 mph are expected near Delta Junction. The Wind Advisories for zones 223 and 226 look to be in good shape. I also added a Wind Advisory for zone 225. Another (likely stronger) round of winds is expected to develop in the same areas on Monday. A front will move to the north across the Interior on Sunday. This system will bring a quick shot of snow to areas from Fairbanks north and west. Fairbanks will see less than one inch of snow. Areas north and west of Fairbanks will see 2 to 4 inches. Temperatures aloft south of Fairbanks will have an above freezing layer as the precipitation moves in. Downsloping should prevent precipitation from making it to the ground south of Fairbanks; however, it is not out of the question that areas from Fairbanks south could briefly see some light freezing rain. Fairbanks may also briefly see freezing rain early Sunday morning; however, we expect that if freezing rain does fall it will quickly change over to snow. Strong winds will develop along the Dalton and Elliott Highways north of Fairbanks on Monday.

West Coast and Western Interior: A 960 mb low is currently situated near Nunivak Island. This low will track northeast this evening, passing just south of St. Lawrence Island around midnight tonight and reaching the Gulf of Anadyr by Sunday afternoon. This system will bring snowfall to coastal areas north of the Seward Peninsula this evening as well as much of the western Interior. Easterly to southeasterly winds with gusts of 40 to 60 mph will continue along the coast this evening, with winds gradually dissipating after midnight. The strong winds winds will persist for St. Lawrence Island and Diomede on Sunday, but will become more southerly. The next low to affect the west coast will move into Bristol Bay early Monday morning. Easterly winds south of the Bering Strait will begin to increase after midnight Sunday night as this system advances. Winds south of the Bering Strait look peak Monday afternoon and evening, before gradually diminishing on Tuesday. Strong east to southeasterly winds will likely persist over St. Lawrence Island and Diomede into Wednesday morning. This system looks to bring stronger easterly winds than the system that is currently moving through. In addition to winds, snow and blowing snow is expected. Winter headlines are likely needed along the west coast for this system; however, will hold off in issuing due to headlines currently in place.

North Slope and Brooks Range: Easterly winds will increase this evening along the coast as a front moves north over the area. Guidance suggests that blowing snow that will reduce the visibility to one half mile or less at times will develop when the wind picks up. I opted to post Winter Weather Advisories along the coast in anticipation of the blowing snow. Some light snow will move across the area tonight and Sunday. 1 to 3 inches of snow is possible west of Wainwright as well as in the Brooks Range. Southerly gap winds will likely pick up for tonight and Sunday. Winds will diminish Sunday night; however another round of strong winds is expected to develop Monday evening.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . Minor rises are expected along the west coast on Sunday as winds become more southerly; however, winds will quickly become easterly again Sunday evening and water levels along the west coast will go down.

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.
