Discussion
Wind related issues will be our main concern for the next couple
of days. First, as former typhoon habilis is moving further
offshore into the bering, the strongest winds have mainly moved
offshore, although gusty winds to 20 to 30 mph will still occur
along the west coast through Wednesday. High pressure developing
over the western yukon in combination with the low over the bering
will cause a tightening pressure gradient and increasing easterly
winds over the beaufort sea coast, as well as gusty winds over
the higher terrain of interior alaska. These winds will persist
through the remainder of the week, especially over the eastern
beaufort sea coast.

Aloft... At 500 hpa... A broad area of high pressure centered just
off of the coast of utqiagvik will move north further over the
beaufort sea Wednesday, then slowly drift east through the
remainder of the week. The 502 dam low that was formerly typhoon
hagibis currently sits northwest of st lawrence island. This will
continue west, merging with another low west of the kamchatka
peninsula Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, a low splitting off of
this will move eastward into kuskokwim bay Thursday. Weak low
pressure will move into eastern interior ak Thursday, undercutting
the beaufort sea high. This low will continue west into the
western interior Friday.

West coast and western interior: winds will diminish tonight as
former typhoon hagibis moves further west into the bering sea. A
front associated with this bringing showers to the west coast this
afternoon will also move west and precipitation chances will
diminish, with just a slight chance of showers between the seward
peninsula and the yukon delta Wednesday. Wednesday afternoon, an
area of low pressure will move onshore south of the yukon delta,
and as such most if not all precipitation from this will remain to
the south of the yukon delta or offshore over the bering sea.

Expect clear skies over the western interior through Wednesday
morning, then partly cloudy skies Wed afternoon through much of
Thursday.

North slope and brooks range: a significant leeside trough on the
eastern side of the brooks range will bring increasing easterly
winds across the eastern beaufort sea coast. These winds will
continue to increase and spread westward Wednesday and Thursday.

Expect winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph Wednesday and
Wednesday night. Winds will also increase over the brooks range,
with gusts to 40 mph. Thursday, the trough will continue to
strengthen, with winds gusting to 40 mph along the beaufort sea
coast from utqiagvik east, and gusts around kaktovik and barter
island may approach or even exceed 45 mph. These strong winds will
persist through Friday, with the strongest winds shifting just
north offshore Friday night as the trough shifts slightly north.

Gusty winds will persist into the weekend.

Central and eastern interior: a trough south and east of fairbanks
is bringing clouds and a few snow showers to the area. Snow should
remain in the vicinity of eagle to tok and areas east as this is
the region of greatest upper level support in the form of an upper
level trough. This trough will generally remain in place through
Friday with periods of snow showers through that timeframe. The
strengthening leeside trough on the eastern side of the brooks
range will bring gusty winds to the higher terrain along and east
of the dalton highway tonight through Thursday night, with the
strongest winds impacting the area Thursday night. With this
system will be snow across the higher terrain along and east of
the dalton highway, with about 1 to 2 inches falling Wed night and
Thursday and another 1 to 2 inches on the highway Thursday night
and Friday. Winds and precipitation in this area will diminish
Friday as the trough shifts further north.

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.

Hydrology None.

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.
