Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 316 PM AKDT Wed Jul 28 2021

SYNOPSIS. Rain is falling across the vast majority of the forecast area as a potent weather system churns off the West Coast. Rain will continue to be heavy at times across the West Coast, resulting in the further increases in river levels across the area. Strong winds along the coast are supporting high surf from the Bering Strait south. Western ALaska will remain in a cool, wet pattern going into the weekend, but warming and drying is expected across the east.

DISCUSSION.

Aloft 500 mb . A 539 dm low centered over the Chukotsk Peninsula will continue to be the main pattern driver over the coming days. As the low progresses southward into the Bering Sea, longwave troughing over the Bering Sea and West Coast of Alaska will amplify. This in turn will amplify ridging over Southcentral Alaska and the Eastern Interior, leading to warming and drying Thursday into the weekend. A 560 dm cutoff low in the Gulf of Alaska will remain in place through the weekend.

North Slope and Brooks Range . A weather front sweeping northeast across the region will support widespread showers and overcast. Winds will shift from easterly to southerly as the front passes, allowing conditions to gradually dry out tonight into Thursday. Patchy fog and showers will still persist near the coast.

West Coast and Western Interior . Rainy and windy conditions will persist through tonight across the coast. The heaviest rain will move into the Western Interior Thursday with showers lingering along the coast. Continued heavy precipitation is still expected for the Seward Peninsula and Western Brooks Range tonight, with up to an additional inch of rain through Thursday. High surf continues to be an issue along the coast south of the Bering Strait. Water levels will peak overnight and diminish Thursday. Elevated rivers and streams could also complicate impacts along the immediate coast. A Flood Advisory has been issued for this reason for the Nome and Snake Rivers.

Central and Eastern Interior . Rain will taper off from west to east tonight. flow will gradually turn more southerly Thursday allowing skies to begin clearing and temperatures to warm. The warming and drying trend will persist into the weekend supported by ridging aloft, but will be limited to areas from Fairbanks east. Southwest flow will support relatively high dewpoints, so the Upper Tanana Valley will remain the driest location.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . Prolonged strong south to southwest winds across the eastern Bering Sea are causing increased wave action along the coast from the Bering Strait south, with 4 to 6 feet of surge above the high water line expected tonight into Thursday. Thus, a High Surf Advisory is out from Wales to Unalakleet with wave run-up pushing water much higher than normal along the beach. Minor beach erosion is expected.

FIRE WEATHER. Wet conditions expected through tonight across the West Coast and Western Interior. The Central and Eastern Interior will see rain totals up to a quarter inch as well, while the Upper Tanana Valley remains mostly rain free. The West Coast will remain wet going into the weekend, with drier and warmer conditons for the Eastern Interior. Despite the warming trend, daytime minimum RH's expected to remain above 30 percent going into the weekend.

HYDROLOGY. Continued wet conditions will result in additional 0.25 to 1.00 inch of rain along the West Coast and into the Western Interior through Thursday, with the heaviest amounts over high terrain.

Rivers and streams draining the southern Seward Peninsula and western Brooks Range will see continued rises in water levels during the week. Soils will be saturated with the potential for heavy rain to trigger rapid rises on smaller creeks in the area. The Nome and Snake Rivers near Nome are rising quickly and a Flood Advisory has been issued accordingly.

People living or recreating in these areas should monitor local conditions and be prepared for continued rises on local streams and rivers including the Snake, Niukluk, Buckland, Kobuk, Noatak and Wulik Rivers.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Flood Advisory for AKZ210-211.

High Surf Advisory for AKZ211-AKZ212-AKZ213.

Small Craft Advisory for PKZ215-PKZ220-PKZ225-PKZ230-PKZ235.

Gale Warning for PKZ200-PKZ210.
