Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 441 AM AKST Sat Jan 25 2020

SYNOPSIS. Light snow will taper off today for the northern Interior. Very cold air will push south and east into Northern Alaska through the weekend. Temperatures will fall through the remainder of the week, with temperatures dropping into the 30 to 40 below range this weekend. As high pressure builds east across the Chukchi, winds will increase along the West Coast and summits in the Interior. Wind chill advisories are out for portions of the west coast and Interior.

DISCUSSION. Aloft, at 500 mb, an Omega block pattern is setting up over the Eastern Bering Sea and a trough over Mainland Alaska which will hold through the weekend. 850 mb temps continue to drop through the weekend, with 850 mb temps ranging between -30C and -38C for much of the central and eastern Interior and North Slope by Sunday.

Surface . A 1034 mb high over Siberia is pushing high pressure E over the Arctic Plain and offshore waters, south of 75N. A 1011 mb low near 78N 180 will move E to the Beaufort Sea then merge with low pressure SE of Banks Island Sun morning as a weak trough moves SE across the Eastern Arctic. Mon morning, a 1035 dam high is 300 nm N of Wrangel Island, and high pressure will continue to push E over the Arctic, and Arctic Plain.

West Coast and Western Interior:Winds generally northwest to east at 5 to 15 mph. Along the Chukchi Sea Coast and through the Bering Strait winds will be north to northeast at 15 to 25 mph and gusty to 35 mph. Temperatures cooling with lows along the coast falling into the 20s below, and inland they will fall to the 30s to 40s below. The cold will continue through most of next week. Wind chill advisories are out for most the west coast through Sunday.

Arctic Coast and Brooks Range . Mostly clear. West to northwest winds along the coast will persist through Sunday over most areas at 5 to 20 mph. Inland winds will be light and variable except near the Brooks Range Passes where north winds will be gusting to around 25 mph on and off through the weekend.

Interior . Light snow will taper off for the northern interior today. Temperatures around the Interior will fall into the 30s to 40s below by Sunday morning and remain cold through mid week. Winds will increase along the higher terrain of the Interior. In the Alaska Range passes, northerly gap winds of 15 to 30 mph are expected to continue through Sunday. This will cause some blowing snow in the passes. Wind chill advisories are out for zones 220-221-225 and 226 through Sunday.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
