Southeast Alaska forecast discussion National Weather Service Juneau Alaska 337 PM akdt Friday Oct 24 2014 Short term...a low about 150 nm west of haida gwaii will slowly weaken and begin to drift southeast Sat. A trough will extend northwest from the low into the eastern Gulf...but gradually weaken through Sat. Used the 12z NAM for the tonight and Sat periods as it had a good handle on the main features. Main forecast issues will be precipitation potential...winds...and fog potential. Right now a band of showers is over the central Panhandle...with more scattered showers to the S. Also...a narrow band of showers is forming near paya. The band of showers over the Central Area will drift north-northwest tonight...eventually moving offshore and north of the main part of the Panhandle Sat. The small band of showers developing near paya will remain there this evening then diminish somewhat later tonight. The scattered showers over the southern half of the area will diminish over all but the far southern and adjacent coastal areas tonight. Increasing northerly flow will dry things out over much of the Panhandle during the day Sat...but some showers will remain over the eastern Gulf/NE Gulf Coast areas. As for winds...strongest winds are over the southeast Gulf and southern Inner Channels. They have southeast 20-30 knots winds right now...and these winds will slowly subside tonight. Winds will probably drop below Small Craft Advisory levels over the southeast Gulf by Sat morning...and by late tonight over the southern Inner Channels. Also have around 20 knots of east-NE wind through Cross Sound and western Icy Strait...and this will slowly diminish Sat. The more north-S channel winds over the northern half of the area will slowly pick up tonight as gradient orientation becomes more favorable for those channels...but do not expect more than 20 knots there. Finally...looks like a narrow band of east-southeast 15-20 knots winds from the paya area westward over the northern Gulf. This band will slowly diminish through Sat. As for fog potential...increasing breaks in the clouds will allow for some fog to form over the eastern Inner Channels tonight in wind sheltered areas. Density of the fog will be highly variable though due to nearby winds aloft. If the depth of light winds was deeper and more widespread...would be a decent dense fog event. The fog should dissipate Sat morning. Otherwise...clouds will be decreasing over the eastern areas Sat as increasing offshore flow develops. This will allow temperatures to rise a few degrees higher Sat than they were today. Long term...drier than normal conditions will continue through next week. The start of the long term forecast period will feature a weak trough over the northeast Gulf. This means pretty tranquil weather over the Panhandle for Saturday night. Expect scattered showers to become isolated with decreasing sky cover through the night. On Sunday an upper level disturbance will move across the northeast Gulf into the northern Panhandle. This will create mostly cloudy skies and light rain showers across the area through Sunday night. On the back side of this upper level disturbance, a sharp but skinny ridge of high pressure will build into the area on Monday. At the same time, the remnant of Tropical Storm Ana will head east towards Vancouver Island. The combination of these weather systems will create a northerly pressure gradient. With northeasterly flow, do expect dry conditions across the northern Panhandle. There will still be some lingering showers over the extreme southern Panhandle from the outer fringes of former Tropical Storm Ana. Beyond next Monday, the weather pattern remains slow to change. There will be higher pressure over the interior, with lower pressure over the Gulf of Alaska. This pattern will feature generally northeast flow over the area, promoting drier than normal conditions. Temperatures should be fairly seasonable, with highs in the 40s, and lows in the low to middle 30s. For the northern areas, the overnight low temperatures will drop below 32 f for early next week. Snow will mix in for higher elevation locations and during the overnight and early morning hours. Forecast confidence is about average through the weekend into early next week. Forecast confidence then decreases to below average beyond that. Various weather models start to diverge in their solution starting early next week. They agree that there will be a general area of low pressure in the Gulf of Alaska. However, they are struggling to provide the details such as the individual disturbances moving up towards the Panhandle. These disturbances will lead to significant differences in wind and precipitation. && Ajk watches/warnings/advisories... public...none. Marine...Small Craft Advisory for pkz033-035-036-041-042.
