Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 153 PM AKDT Sun Apr 21 2024

SYNOPSIS

There continues to be good agreement among the deterministic and ensemble solutions with the 12Z cycle, with differences by Friday into next weekend with little run to run consistency. Overall confidence in the forecast remains high through mid to late week, with less confidence by next weekend given the lack of run to run consistency. Upper level high pressure will continue to dominate Interior Alaska into Monday and Tuesday. An upper shortwave trough will move across the Lisburne Peninsula and North Slope breaking down the upper ridge Monday through Tuesday, while a weak upper disturbance moves across southern Alaska. Models in good agreement with a strengthening upper low over the Bering Sea for late week, which will help rebuild the ridge across Interior Alaska. Multiple vort maxes will lift northwest across the Yukon Delta bringing another period of unsettled weather for mid to late week. Models have struggled with how they want to eject the Bering Sea low across the Aleutian Islands and into the Gulf of Alaska next weekend, especially in regards to timing and strength.

DISCUSSION
Dry and mild weather will continue across Interior Alaska through the extended period. Temperatures will remain warm, with 40s and 50s for most locations. A few low 60s will continue to be possible in the lee of the Alaska Range, including Fairbanks. Temperatures look to cool a bit for next weekend, but only by 5 to 10 degF. At this time, most precipitation looks to remain to the northwest from Tuesday through Friday, given the track of the upper shortwave to the northwest. The upper disturbance to the south looks to pass too far south to bring precipitation to the Interior. Winds will continue to be gusty in the lee of the Alaska Range, with gusts 30 to 40 mph expected through Monday.

Temperatures will slowly warm across the North Slope with teens and 20s by Tuesday and persisting through the remainder of the extended period. The upper shortwave forecast to move out of the Chukchi Sea and across the Lisburne Peninsula into the North Slope will bring snow showers Monday through Tuesday. Upper ridging will then build across the North Slope bringing drier, windy conditions to the area. Ensembles show high probabilities of northeast onshore winds in the 20 to 30 kt range from Thursday into next weekend. Areas of fog and stratus along with periods of light snow will continue during this period.

Gusty winds along with light snow and poor visibility will continue over St. Lawrence Island and the Bering Strait coast through much of tonight. Observations continue to show low visibility and strong winds, and will keep the Winter Weather Advisory in effect with this forecast package. Model guidance does have winds subsiding overnight into Monday morning with improving conditions. There looks to be two upper vort maxes rotating around the main Bering Sea low through mid week. Each will bring periods of coastal snow and inland rain. The first will lift across the Yukon Delta on Tuesday, with a stronger max lifting across the delta on Wednesday. Winds will also increase along the West Coast for midweek, with gusts in excess of 30 kts possible. Current model and ensemble guidance takes the Bering Sea low and tracks to southeast across the Aleutians and into the Gulf of Alaska next weekend. This is new with this model cycle, and confidence in this solution is low at this time. If the low does indeed follow this progression, a cold front would drop south along the West Coast and effectively shut down precipitation over the weekend.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4...None.
