Marine Weather and Tides
8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 136 PM AKDT Sat Sep 26 2020
SYNOPSIS. Quiescent weather will dominate the Interior as the storm track shifts south as a barrage of strong lows moves up along the Gulf Coast. This will increase the pressure gradient with blustery northerlywinds moving down through the Bering Strait. After some clearing through Sunday, a weakening front will graze the Eastern Interior, bringing back more clouds and intermittent light rain chances through Tuesday.
Upper Levels and Analysis . A very large upper level trough dominates the region from the Bering Sea into the North Pacific. The Mainland is on the weak southerly flow side of this upper trough with numerous weakening ripples of energy passing through the flow. Extensive clouds persist given the weak flow and leftover moisture from a remnant frontal zone. A rapidly deepening bomb cyclone over the North Pacific is moving northeast into the Gulf of Alaska, and this will induce a strong offshore pressure gradient tonight and Sunday, increasing northerly winds down the Bering Strait and resulting in a brief partial clearing over most of the Mainland.
Central and Eastern Interior . Extensive clouds should gradually scatter out through tonight, leaving Sunday as a nice fall day. Some patchy fog will once again develop overnight tonight given this partial clearing. The next weakening front will move into the Interior Sunday evening, bringing intermittent light rain chances mainly from the Tanana Valley eastward. Rain will be light, however, with most valley locations seeing not much more than light trace amounts, with the best rain accumulations over the Fortymile Uplands and Eastern AK Range. Drying and warming commences Tue and Wed.
West Coast and Western Interior . A weak wave of upper level energy will rotate into the Yukon Delta and Lower Yukon Valley this evening and tonight, bringing light rain. Thereafter, northerly winds increase which will result in drying. Winds will diminish on Monday with dry and quiet weather persisting through Tuesday.
North Slope and Brooks Range . Normal weather for the North Slope as a weak northeast low level flow will persist, keeping in periods of low stratus and fog with intermittent light rain/snow mixed in at times. This pattern will persist through Tuesday although the gradient will relax a bit by then as well.
Extended Forecast Days 4-7 . A major amplification of the upper level wave pattern develops midweek as a series of powerful storms assault the southern coast of Alaska. This will result in significant chinook warming as these fronts cross the Alaska Range and 850 hpa temps shoot up to 5-11 degrees C by Wednesday and Thursday. Temps will soar well above average for much of the Interior as some areas may see high temps pushing into the 60s. Each front will bring some mid level clouds and light rain chances, but the big story will be the warmth, especially over the Interior. 5000-7000 foot snow levels will push as far north as the Brooks Range by late week, quite impressive for early October.
Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.
HYDROLOGY. No significant concerns.
AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Small Craft Advisory for PKZ200-PKZ210-PKZ220-PKZ225.
