Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 316 PM AKST Fri Feb 28 2020

SYNOPSIS. Highlights: Continued very cold over Interior and West Coast tonight. Very cold wind chills over Eastern Arctic Coast through early Sat. Blowing snow with reduced visibility over Western Arctic Coast through early Sun. A strong storm developing in the southern Bering Sea on Sat will bring 4-6 inches of snow, strong winds and low visibility in blowing snow to zones 214 and 214 Sat eve to Sun even, 6-12 inches of snow to zone 227 Sat night through Sun night, 6 to 12 inches to the south slopes of the Alaska Range Sun through Mon, and 4 inches to the remainder of the southern Interior Sun through Mon, with more possible Mon night and Tue.

Colder temperatures, with highs near zero and lows in the 20s and 30s below, are expected to return next Tuesday and to last most of next week.

Aloft . A long wave trough stretching from near the North Pole south across the Chukchi Sea into the Wester Bering Sea will progress east over Mainland Alaska on Sun, then deepen through the middle of next week. Several weak short waves will move east across the state through Sat. The Interior will see very cold temps again next week as thr trough deepens.

A strong short wave in the Western Bering Sea will move into Bristol Bay Sat, over the Western Alaska Range on Sun, and then over the Eastern Alaska Range on Mon. This will push snow into Southwest Alaska and Alaska Range on Sat night, and over the Eastern Interior on Sun.

850 mb temps range from -24C over NE Alaska to -14C over the Yukon Delta. Will see temps rise 2-4C over the areas south of the Arctic Circle by Sat, and another several degrees by Sun. This will cause surface temps to rise over the Southern Interior when clouds move Sat night, and to warm over the Interior south of the Arctic Circle Sun and Sun night. Strong cooling Mon through Wed next week is expected to cause surface temps too fall well below normal next week and to remain cold through most of next week.

Surface . A 996 mb low 400 NM northwest of Point Barrow will move to 300 NM north of Demarcation Point as a 998 mb low by 3am Sat, then move east. A weather front trailing this low will move to Point Barrow to Cape Lisburne by 3am Sat, then move east of Demarcation Point by 3am Sun and along the Brooks Range on Sat night into Sun. This will will bring snow and blowing snow with low visibility to zones 201 and 202 through Sat AM, and cold wind chills to zones 203 and 204 through Sat AM.

A strong low in the southern Bering Sea will move to the Central Bering Sea as a 960 mb low by 3pm Sat, then move to the just north of Bristol Bay as a 978 mb low by 3pm Sun and to the southeast Interior by Mon. This will bring 4-6 inches of snow, strong winds and low visibility in blowing snow to zones 214 and 214 Sat eve to Sun even, 6-12 inches of snow to zone 227 Sat night through Sun night, 6 to 12 inches to the south slopes of the Alaska Range Sun through Mon, and 4 inches to the remainder of the Interior south of the Yukon River Sun through Mon, with more snow possible Mon night and Tue. Expect north winds 20-30 kt and blowing snow to develop along the West Coast from the Bering Strait south on Sat PM and continue into Sun PM.

DISCUSSION. Models initialize well aloft, and show similar solutions through 3pm Sun. After that time the NAM deepens the trough over mainland Alaska more than other models with lower heights across northern Alaska than the the other models Sun night and Mon. At this time favor a mix of the GFS and ECMF over the NAM for Sun night and Mon.

Models similar precipitation pattern through 3pm Sat, then the NAM and ECMF moves precip NE faster than the GFS. At this time favor the GFS due to downslope conditions at the outset of precipitation

Southerly downslope flow that develops across the Alaska Range Sat night will turn SW on Sun and W on Mon. This will allow snow to develop west of Nenana Sat night, and to spread to Fairbanks and areas well north of the Alaska Range on Sun, with snow spreading east to the Alcan Border by Mon.

At the surface, models verify well and show similar solutions through 3pm Sun. After that time the NAM moves a deep low into the SE Interior than the GFS and ECMF. At this time favor the GFS.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
