NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
153 PM akdt Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Analysis and upper levels...the upper level high that has been 
over the state has begun to push northwestward as an upper level 
low has moved into the northern Gulf of Alaska. This is producing 
easterly flow over southwest and southcentral Alaska today. There 
are a couple of easterly waves...upper level disturbances moving 
from east to west...that are embedded in this flow. These waves 
have caused some of the increased cloud cover and rain showers. 
The jet stream is running just south of the Aleutian Islands and 
is providing the source for a strengthening low south of the 
western Aleutians. This will cause the low there to rapidly 
strengthen and absorb the weakening low in the central Bering Sea 
tomorrow as that low does not have any upper level support. 


&& 


Model discussion...models are in good synoptic agreement through 
the remainder of the week. One item they all seem to be catching 
up on is the speed at which the first easterly wave that moved 
through southcentral Alaska traveled this morning. This wave has 
crossed the Alaska Range this afternoon and is moving faster than 
anticipated by previous model runs. The second easterly wave is 
over northern Prince William Sound early this afternoon and headed 
to the west. The models may have tried to mix these waves into one 
previously as neither is very strong. 


The models do diverge a bit staring early next week but there 
still looks to be a general pattern emerging that we can work 
with. 
&& 


Short term forecast... 
southcentral Alaska...the atmosphere is somewhat unstable this 
afternoon with rain showers being produced as the easterly waves 
move through the area. The precipitation has not been as 
widespread as radar indicates however as the lower atmosphere 
remains fairly dry causing a good amount of the showers to 
evaporate into virga. 
A front in the southwest Gulf of Alaska is pumping a bit of 
moisture into the southern half Kodiak Island. The northern 
portion including the city of Kodiak is out of the main push of 
moisture but will see some showers as well. There is a chance they 
become more widespread over the island this evening as the latest 
satellite loops indicate a low that developed along this front is 
edging to the northwest. 


Southwest Alaska...there is some increasing clouds in conjunction 
with an easterly wave in the upper Kuskokwim valley and another 
region of clouds south of King Salmon. In between there are some 
showers developing over elevated terrain as the daytime heating 
provides low level lift. 


Bering Sea/Aleutians...the low in the central Bering Sea is 
weakening but is still impacting the weather there. The 
eastern Bering Sea has some clouds near the low and along a 
dissipating front but also has a large area of sunny skies as 
well. Rain showers persist in the western Aleutians in the 
northwest flow there. 
&& 


Long term forecast... 
the low that moves into the southwestern Gulf Friday night will 
remain nearly stationary and slowly weaken through the weekend. 
There is some uncertainty added to the forecast after this low 
dissipates as the models are struggling to come to a common 
solution as to what happens next. At this time the most likely 
scenario involves the low track to move into the Bering Sea with 
some semblance of high pressure over southern and southwest 
Alaska...which builds northward into the eastern interior part of 
the state by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Afc watches/warnings/advisories... 
public...none 
marine...Gale Warning 150 155 165 170 172 173 174 176 
fire weather...none
