Southeast Alaska forecast discussion National Weather Service Juneau Alaska 300 PM akst Friday Mar 6 2015 Short term...satellite imagery this afternoon showing a high pressure ridge over the Alaska Panhandle, a strong 988 mb low in the Bering Sea tracking east and a weakening 998 mb low in the North Pacific retrograding to the west. Currently 500 mb vorticity maximum over the Panhandle ridge moving over the Panhandle enhancing lift. Along with cooler air aloft this is producing scattered rain showers over the central and northern Panhandle but with numerous clear breaks. As the vorticity maximum tracks east shower activity from this disturbance will diminish but through the night will have increased precipitation potential from the two lows in our vicinity. To the south bans emanating form the North Pacific low will near the southern Panhandle tonight. Since the low is pulling away to the west with less support aloft not expecting much from this system to reach the southern Panhandle. To the north the low advancing from the Bering Sea is much better organized and will begin to move in precipitation to the northern coastal Panhandle through the evening. As the wave progresses to the southeast through Saturday probability of precipitation will increase over the northern and central Panhandle. While there is some colder air aloft with the middle level trough moving over the area current satellite appears more stratiform then showery in nature. While the colder air aloft will eventually mix down to the surface the Panhandle will still be above normal Friday night and Saturday due to warming air ridging up from the North Pacific low. Pressure gradient between the Panhandle ridge and low over the Yukon increased bit faster today with gusty winds over the northern Inner Channels. North Lynn Canal picked up to small craft levels today with 15 to 25 miles per hour winds over Skagway. Pressure gradient will continue to tighten was the Bering Sea low advances eastward. For now keeping north Lynn just below gale force for Saturday and keeping Skagway gusts just below 40 mph, but both areas could near these higher thresholds. Small craft level winds will develop in S Lynn Canal and Stephens Passage as well on Saturday with winds picking up to 20 knots elsewhere. Models in fair agreement this afternoon with NAM/ECMWF/Gem still in line with inherited grid. Bumped up winds tonight slightly following the current wind trend. Backed off on some precipitation over the north central Panhandle as models were bit over zealous with the shower activity over the ridge. Forecast confidence is average. Long term...the Bering Sea low discussed above will feature prominently in the early portion of the extended range forecast. As the lows tracks east across the interior, the associated front will drag across the far northern Gulf and then sag southeast across the Panhandle. In addition to rain near sea level, the front will bring significant snowfall to higher elevations with close to 4 inches along The Klondike Highway near White Pass and 2 to 3 inches along the Haines Highway. As the front passes to the east and the parent low moves into the Yukon, a strong southerly pressure gradient will generate southerly gale force winds in northern Lynn Canal Saturday night and Sunday. High end small craft winds for southern Lynn Canal during the same time period. In the wake of this first low, another will form near Prince William Sound and push showers east. Precipitation from this feature will be on the leading edge of strong low level cold air advection. By Sunday afternoon, expect snow near sea level to begin vicinity Yakutat and spread east and south with measurable accumulations all the way down to the Dixon Entrance lasting potentially through Tuesday afternoon. 48 hour totals generally in the 2 to 4 inch range in a swath of maximum accumulations extending southeast from Yakutat to near Wrangell. The cold air will begin to retreat to the north by middle week as a low west of Washington state at that time begins to track north, bringing warmer low level air and a front with it. Used a blend of NAM and European model (ecmwf) for updates to pressure and wind through Monday night with wpc thereafter. Pop and quantitative precipitation forecast from European model (ecmwf) and Gem with some help from GFS at times. Temperatures unchanged.
