Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 1247 PM AKST Sun Dec 15 2019

SYNOPSIS. A period of relatively quiet weather is expected for northern Alaska through much of the week. Colder air will filter into the Interior by Wednesday and stay could through the week. Scattered snow showers will continue over Saint Lawrence Island and Norton Sound through Sunday. The pressure gradient will tighten on the north slope producing strong winds Monday night into Tuesday.

DISCUSSION. The long wave pattern consists of a high amplitude ridge over Eastern Alaska and Western Canada and a high amplitude trough over the Bering Sea and North Central Pacific. Southerly flow over the Alaska range will weaken and become more southeasterly by Monday. A deep and very cold low aloft which is the center of the polar vortex, and now located over the Canadian Archipelago, will drift west to Banks Island by Wed and form a cold trough over Northern Alaska, which will bring cause temperatures to fall to colder than normal Wednesday through the weekend.

Surface . High pressure will persist over the Eastern Arctic through the weekend. A strong low in the southeast Bering Sea will move into Bristol Bay today and then weaken into Mon. Another low will track across the Aleutians on Tuesday.

North Slope and Brooks Range . Quiet weather through the weekend with patches of low stratus and fog for the north slope. The pressure gradient will tighten up Monday night into Tuesday. Expecting East winds of 30 to 45 mph. There could be some local blowing snow and low visibility where there is loose snow on the ground.

Interior . A slight pressure gradient is producing easterly winds that are gusting to 30 mph near Delta Junction and in the Alaska range. Winds will decrease some on Monday. Otherwise pretty quiet over the Interior will no precipitation expected. Turning colder by mid week next week.

West coast . An occluded front that lies from Cold Bay to the YK Delta will move west and merge with the arctic front this afternoon. This is now causing areas of light snow from the Seward Pen south, and areas of freezing rain and snow southwest of Anvik. This precip will move west with the front this evening.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Brisk Wind Advisory for PKZ240-PKZ245.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
