NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
532 am akdt Sat Apr 19 2014 


Analysis and upper levels... 
the low that has resided over the eastern Bering during the last 
several days can be seen on water vapor imagery spinning just 
north of the Alaska Peninsula this morning. Another closed low is 
moving toward the southern Gulf and is currently southeast of the 
Dixon Entrance. A shortwave is following this low near 45n 155w 
and becoming more organized. Upper level ridging is building 
across the southeastern Mainland. At the surface...gusty east 
winds are developing over the Gulf waters as the pressure gradient 
tightens in advance of the northeastern Pacific low. The 
southwestern areas of the state have a few rain and snow showers 
that are developing across a weak boundary in relatively weak 
flow. Snow showers are also noted across the central Bering as 
northerly winds filter in cooler temperatures. 


&& 


Model discussion... 
no significant changes were made in the short term forecast 
through Monday night as models are in decent agreement with the 
overall shift in synoptic pattern. The European model (ecmwf) was the favored model 
solution for the current forecast updates with additional use of 
the GFS across the Bering added on Monday. The southern Mainland 
will stay relatively dry and warmer into the beginning of next 
week as ridging builds into central Alaska. Low pressure moves 
into the southeastern Gulf today and and slowly meanders west as 
the building ridge over the Mainland blocks this system. The 
weather pattern becomes progressive this weekend across the 
Aleutians and Bering. A ridge will build over the western 
aleutains today and shift east tonight as a North Pacific low 
pushes a front into the western Aleutians tonight. The current low 
in the eastern Bering will shear apart as it is squeezed by high 
pressure over the Mainland and central Bering. 


&& 


Short term forecast... 


Southcentral Alaska... 
dry conditions will prevail across much of the southern Mainland 
with temperatures at or above normal into the beginning of next 
week. Winds will increase this morning along the Gulf Coast and 
Cook Inlet as the pressure gradient increases in advance of the 
low moving into the southern Gulf. Gale strength winds are 
expected across the western Gulf today and across the northern 
half of the Gulf on Sunday. Rain will over spread the Gulf this 
morning and continue through Sunday. The heaviest rainfall is 
expected today along the western Gulf including Kodiak Island. On 
Sunday low pressure weakens as it moves south of Kodiak Island. 
Scattered rain showers stay in the forecast Sunday across the Gulf 
and then isolated chances on Monday as the low diminishes. 


Southwest Alaska... 
early morning satellite imagery indicates the weakening low has 
crossed the akpenn and is entering the eastern Bering Sea. This 
is helping for redevelopment of rain and snow along coastal 
Bristol Bay. Periods of rain and snow will continue until early 
this evening when the system will sheer apart and conditions will 
begin to improve. Skies throughout southwest will begin to clear 
on Sunday morning as middle level ridging over the eastern Mainland 
pinwheels westward. This ridging will then continue into early 
next week...providing mostly clear skies with seasonable 
temperatures and light winds. 




Bering Sea/Aleutians... 
snow and rain showers will continue today for the eastern 
Aleutians and akpenn as the eastern Bering low dissipates in 
place. Most of these showers will be found on the Bering faces of 
the islands...where the showers will be short lived and intense at 
times this morning. After the upper trough dissipates this 
evening...most of the area will experience a brief respite of 
better weather as a transient ridge pushes through ahead of the 
next Aleutian low. This low will begin to impact the western 
Aleutians on Sunday afternoon. 


&& 


Long term forecast... 
the general long term forecast through next weekend remains 
mostly unchanged. The Aleutian low that will move into the area 
on Sunday will very slowly move through the Bering over the 
course of next week as ridging builds over the Mainland. There 
remains good consensus that a weakening front from this low will 
reach the southwest Mainland and western Gulf on Wednesday...but 
ridging should keep interior locations (including southcentral) 
dry and mostly clear through the work week. The one exception to 
this will be with a slight chance of diurnal convective 
showers...mainly along higher elevations...starting middle week and 
possibly continuing into the weekend. 




&& 


Afc watches/warnings/advisories... 
public...none. 
Marine...gales 119 120 131 132 138 155 175 176 177 178. 
Fire weather...none.
