SYNOPSIS. Cloudy across the forecast are with showers moving to the West Coast tonight. Slight chance of thunderstorms southeast of Chicken today. Southwest flow developing across the state will bring keep the area cloudy with showers pushing into the Interior and across the Arctic early in the week.

DISCUSSION.

Models . 25/00Z solutions are in good agreement in the short term, and they are leaning toward a concensus solution in the midrange. Convective indicies support isolated thunderstorms southeast of Chicken today. Will be using a blend, including the current database, of the solutions for all elements today to maintain continuity.

Aloft . At 500 hpa . Ridging extends from a 568 dam high over Dawson YT southwest to a 568 dam high over Denali then over Bristol Bay. A 551 dam low that was over Point Hope yesterday has moved to 100 nm north of Kaktovik at 551 dam and will move over the Beaufort Sea this morning with associated shortwave moving over MacKenzie Bay. A 544 dam low remains just west of Wrangel Island with a trough extending south from the low just east of the Dateline to a 565 dam low 200 nm north of Adak. A 556 dam low that was near Kodiak has moved southeast to 400 nm south of Cordova. This afternoon the ridging will slide south a bit to lie from a 567 dam high over the Top of the World Highway crossing to a 567 dam high over Cook Inlet west of Kenai then southwest. The low in the Siberian Arctic will move over Wrangel Island at 542 dam with the trough extending southeast to a 561 dam low just north of Unalaska. Weak ridging will also lie from Tanana to Oliktok Point then northwest over the Central Arctic. Monday morning the ridging will remain over the Southeast Interior and Southcentral area with a 565 dam high over Lake Louise. Ridging will also extend north from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay then northwest over the Arctic. The low will remain over Wrangel Island as the trough moves over the West Coast from Point Hope to Bethel to a 561 dam low 100 nm south of Cold Bay. The low in the Northeast Pacific will move to 400 nm south of Yakutat. Monday night the ridging will remain stationary as the trough to the west works over the Western Interior as it starts to ride over the ridge At 850 hpa. A dome of +10C or warmer will persist over the far Southeast Interior with the remainder of the forecast area in the +2C to +10C range through mid week.

Surface . Weak low pressure over the eastern Interior will be exiting the area this morning as will a 1011 mb low in the offshore waters north of Kaktovik. Weak high pressure remains over the southern Interior and Southcentral area. A 1004 mb low in the Chukchi Sea will move just off the Northwest Arctic Coast near Cape Lisburne this afternoon as the associated front moves onshore. Monday morning high pressure will hold south and east of the Yukon River as low pressure pushes into the West Coast and north of the Yukon River. The low near the Northwest Arctic Coast will move to 200 nm northwest of Point Lay and a 1006 mb low will develop along the front near Kivalina. A 1009 mb low will develop near Arctic Village in the low pressure north of the Yukon River.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

Extended forecast for days 4 to 7 . The models continue the struggle and are now leaning toward rebuilding the ridging over the eastern half of the state with southwest flow over the western half of the state. That will lead to thunderstorms and showers in the Interior with warmer and drier conditions, while on the West Coast showers and cloudy conditions will prevail.

Fire Weather. Mostly cloudy to the north of the Yukon River with some breaks in the clouds to the south.
