NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
142 PM akdt Monday Sep 1 2014 


Analysis and upper levels...the large cold upper level low just 
off the Arctic coast remains in place today as the next trough 
extends out from it and into western Alaska. The ridge over south 
central Alaska is being displaced eastward by this trough and 
therefore more clouds are moving into the region. The surface 
ridge over the Alaska Peninsula and Aleutian Islands is holding 
firm today which is bringing zonal westerly flow across the Bering 
Sea and into southwest Alaska. 
&& 


Model discussion... 
models are in good synoptic agreement for the next few days. The 
biggest area of concern begins Tuesday night south of the Alaska 
Peninsula where a North Pacific low is elongating and possibly 
forming a triple point low. The way this system develops is 
handled much differently especially between the European model (ecmwf) and the 
GFS. The GFS appears to move the low farther north way too fast 
resulting in it placing the low about 500 miles northeast of the 
European model (ecmwf) solution. The overall dynamics support the more southerly 
Route and slower timing closer to the European model (ecmwf) model. However there 
is a good chance that the two models will converge on a solution 
that may be between the two...but closer to the European model (ecmwf). 
&& 


Short term forecast... 
southcentral Alaska...the ridge that has brought a number of sunny 
days to south central Alaska is moving eastward as the next upper 
level disturbance emanating from the Arctic low moves toward the 
area. The bulk of the energy with this trough is north of the 
Alaska Range so most of the precipitation associated with it will 
be from Talkeetna northward. The rest of south central will 
likely just see increased clouds. 


Southwest Alaska... 
as with south central the majority of the energy with this trough 
is north of the area which is limiting the heaviest precipitation 
to the Kuskokwim valley. The zonal westerly flow is bringing a 
large amount of stratus into southwest Alaska which is already on 
shore in the Kuskokwim Delta area and will move into the Bristol 
Bay region this evening. There may be some light rain and drizzle 
as well as fog associated with this. 


Bering Sea/Aleutians... 
the majority of the Bering Sea is under the marine stratus however 
the ridge over the Aleutians and Alaska Peninsula is strong enough 
to bring mostly sunny skies from Adak eastward. The stratus will 
eventually make in back into the Alaska Peninsula overnight and 
the rest of the Aleutians sometime Tuesday. 


&& 


Long term forecast... 
the southcentral Mainland and southwest Alaska will be under the 
influence of a low pressure system moving through the Bristol Bay 
region by Friday. This system will move inland over the weekend 
bringing widespread moisture and rain with gusty winds. The 
central and western Bering Sea will have stratus and fog as high 
pressure builds into the area heading into next weekend. A North 
Pacific low will approach the central Aleutians by Saturday 
afternoon before tracking into the central Bering Sea by Monday. 
This system will bring abundant moisture and precipitation with 
gusty northeasterly winds. 


&& 


Afc watches/warnings/advisories... 
public...none. 
Marine...none. 
Fire weather...none.
