Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 539 AM AKDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS. Rainy conditions across the western part of the state will see improvements today in weather conditions before another round of heavy rain returns tomorrow night. Rivers and streams will continue to be elevated, with the potential for more issues with rapid rises through the weekend. Drier and warmer temperatures will encompass the eastern part of the state over the next several days as high pressure slowly builds into the area.

DISCUSSION. In the upper levels, a strong closed low over Siberia continues to dominate the flow across the West Coast and Western Interior this morning. This feature will move slightly to the southeast, making flow more southwesterly across northern Alaska by tonight. Another strong shortwave associated with this feature will reach the West Coast by Friday morning and then propagate to the northeast off the eastern Arctic Coast by Friday night. At this point, the upper level longwave trough will dig further south. However, models show noticeable differences in strength of this feature by Saturday morning. Ridging tries to build in across the Eastern Interior over the next several days, but doesn't really make a significant push until early next week. If ridging builds like models are indicating right now, a return to hot weather could occur for areas of the Eastern Interior by early next week.

A broad area of surface low pressure over Siberia has an occluded front situated across the Arctic Coast and extending southwestward through the Western Interior to eastern Norton Sound to the Yukon Delta this morning. This front will stall across the Western Interior, keeping wet conditions in this region through tomorrow. Another surface low pressure will quickly move across the Bering Sea tomorrow, bringing a new round of rain to the West Coast by tomorrow night. Weak surface high pressure in the Eastern Interior will keep relatively dry conditions despite the weather front from the second low pressure moving into the Interior on Saturday.

Central and Eastern Interior . A warming and drying trend will begin today and last into the weekend for the region. Generally low to mid-70s will be present in most areas going into next week.

North Slope and Brooks Range . A weather front has moved north of the Arctic Coast, bringing southerly flow. This has led to generally improved conditions from the typical low ceiling and fog issues. There is the potential for more rain on Saturday across the northwest Arctic Coast. Temperatures look to remain above normal going into the weekend.

West Coast and Western Interior . Wetter conditions will subside along the West Coast, but will persist in the Western Interior as the occluded front stalls. A return to wet conditions across the West Coast is expected beginning tomorrow night as another strong front will bring a good plume of moisture to the area. Rain totals for this event are expected to range from one half inch to one inch across most of the region, with localized amounts exceeding 1.50 inches. Temperatures look to remain below normal due to these damp conditions.

Coastal Hazard Potential . Minor flooding issues and beach erosion have occurred, but conditions are expected to improve throughout the morning. Thus, the High Surf Advisories around Norton Sound and up to the Bering Strait end at noon today. No coastal issues anticipated through the weekend.

FIRE WEATHER. The West Coast and Western Interior will remain wet through the weekend, so no issues there. In the Eastern Interior, conditions will trend warmer and drier beginning today. These conditions are expected to continue through the weekend, with indications that this trend will continue into the extended forecast periods through the middle of next week. Strong southwest winds in the Interior will subside this evening. Minimum RH's expected to remain above 25 percent in the Eastern Interior through Saturday.

HYDROLOGY. A Flood Advisory is in effect for the Nome and Snake Rivers as observations indicate nearing and exceeding bankfull through this afternoon.

Rain is expected to diminish across the West Coast today, but will remain wet for the Western Interior going into Friday. Another heavy rain event is expected to develop across the West Coast Friday evening and into the Western Interior Friday night. Rain totals for this event are expected to range from one half inch to one inch across most of the region, with localized amounts exceeding 1.50 inches in the foothills of the Brooks Range through Saturday morning.

Due to the recent rain accumulations across the region, water levels in rivers and streams will remain elevated, with significant rises expected throughout the weekend.

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

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Flood Advisory for AKZ210-AKZ211.

High Surf Advisory for AKZ211-AKZ212-AKZ213.

Small Craft Advisory for PKZ200-PKZ220-PKZ225-PKZ230.
