Northern Alaska Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fairbanks AK 1234 PM AKST Fri Nov 27 2020

SYNOPSIS. The weather pattern over Northern Alaska remains relatively quiet especially as compared to the last couple of weeks with no watches, warnings or advisories currently in effect nor expected through the weekend. Gusty winds are expected along the Chukchi Sea Coastline as well as the Bering Strait through Saturday. Gusty winds are also expected from Delta Junction to Nenana as a weak Tanana Valley continues into Saturday. Mostly cloudy skies and light snow is expected over the Central and Eastern Interior to the south of the Yukon River Sunday into Monday. Easterly winds will become northerly for most of the West Coast and Western Interior and will help limit precipitation chances in these areas. A stalled and weakening front over the North Slope will produce low stratus ceilings and flurries as well as gusty southeast winds along the coast through Saturday.

DISCUSSION. Upper Levels and Analysis . The long wave pattern consists of a deep trough over the Bering Sea and a ridge over Western Canada and Eastern Alaska. Several strong short waves making their way around the trough will dig into the ridge and pull the trough east over Alaska and the Gulf of Alaska by Sat, then persist there into Mon before retrograding slightly next week. This means that Northern Alaska will cool to near normal by Sat, then remain near normal through Mon, with the SE Interior warming to above normal Tue through the end of next week.

Models . The 27/12z model suite initialized well against the 12z surface analysis and verified well against the 18z surface analysis on synoptic scale features in both location and strength. The model suite remains fairly consistent in amplifying a the trough ridge pattern centered over Alsaka over the weekend and into next week.

Central and Eastern Interior . Mostly cloudy conditions will continue with no large weather system expected to impact the interior into the middle of next week. A weak front will push north and west into the Eastern and Central Interior on Sunday and Monday and will bring a chance of light snow or flurries to the area mainly south of the Yukon River and to the East of Tanana. The Tanana Valley Jet is active this afternoon and will continue to bring gusty east winds in the 15 to 30 mph range to areas near Big Delta west to near Nenana through Saturday night. Southerly winds ahead of a low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska continues to cause moderate south winds through Alaska Range Passes. Expect the winds to continue through and near the Alaska Range Passes into Saturday before diminishing some Saturday night.

West Coast and Western Interior . A strong low in the southern Bering Sea will become very strong and move into the Gulf of Alaska on Sat and move to the Northern Gulf of Alaska Coast on Sun. This will cause North winds along the Capes of the West Coast to increase through Sat and persist into Sun. Generally dry conditions are expected for the Western Interior and only a stray snow shower pushing inland along the coast.

North Slope and Brooks Range . A stalled and weakening front over the North Slope will produce low stratus ceilings and flurries along the coast through Saturday. Gusty northeasterly winds will develop through the Brooks Range Passes, especially the Western Brooks Range as a deep low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska combined with strong ridging over northern Siberia stacks a strong gradient along the north side of the Brooks Range through the weekend.

Extended Forecast Days 4-7 . A low pushing into the northern Gulf of Alaska on Tuesday of next week will spin a front north and west into the Interior and will produce snowfall generally light south of the Brooks Range. Gusty winds are expected along and near the northern Foothills of the Alaska Range Monday and Tuesday. Moderate strong northerly winds will continue along the West Coast and through the Bering Strait through the middle of next week.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4 . None.

AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. Heavy Freezing Spray Warning for PKZ200-PKZ210-PKZ220-PKZ225- PKZ230.

Small Craft Advisory for PKZ225-PKZ230.

Gale Warning for PKZ210-PKZ220.

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.
