NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
147 PM akdt Friday Oct 24 2014 


Analysis and upper levels... 
an elongated upper level low over eastern Russia into northern 
Alaska is bringing zonal flow aloft over southern Alaska from the 
Bering Sea through the Gulf of Alaska. An upper level disturbance 
is moving into southcentral Alaska from southwest Alaska. This 
wave is dissipating as it moves to the east. 
This pattern will begin to shift on Sunday and Sunday night as 
the low in eastern Russia digs southward into the Bering Sea which 
will also amplify an upper level ridge over the Copper River basin 
near the alcan border. 


At the surface there is a large and complex low over the northwest 
Bering Sea through eastern Russia. A front associated with this 
low complex is keeping a fairly tight pressure gradient over the 
Bering Sea as it pushes into the ridge over southwest Alaska. A 
low near the north Gulf Coast will remain in the area through 
Saturday and is bringing some moisture into the coastal area and 
Copper River basin. 


&& 


Model discussion... 
model initialization was good on the 12z runs for all models. 
Models continue to show good consensus until Saturday night when 
the solution for the low strengthening in the northwest Bering 
Sea begins to diverge. The European model (ecmwf) model is showing the low stronger 
and farther east on Sunday and then is move northward faster than 
do the GFS or NAM models. By Sunday night there is nearly 250 
miles difference in location of the low with the European model (ecmwf) moving it 
almost to the Bering Strait while the NAM and GFS have is 
southwest of St Lawrence Island. While the center of the low is 
far enough north to mitigate the effect it will have on the southwest 
Alaska Mainland it is strong enough that the track will be 
important. In short...there will be a strong low in the Bering 
Sea through the weekend but the details related to the track of 
the low may change some as the storm develops. 


&& 


Short term forecast... 
southcentral Alaska... 
the upper level wave that is moving across the Alaska Range this 
afternoon is rapidly weakening as it moves eastward. This is 
diminishing the chance for snow showers across the Cook Inlet to 
Susitna Valley regions. The low in the northern Gulf is producing 
some rain and snow showers near the coastal locations. This low is 
also pushing some moisture into the Copper River basin which will 
cause some periods of snow throughout the basin into tomorrow 
morning. Skies should begin to clear out over southcentral again 
as the surface low in southwest Alaska moves over southcentral 
tomorrow. 


Southwest Alaska... 
the ridge over southwest Alaska will give way to a weather front 
which will start to bring in snow to the Kuskokwim Delta tomorrow 
morning which will spread eastward throughout the day. Coastal 
areas of the Delta will also see some gusty winds with this front. 


Bering Sea/Aleutians... 
the mostly clear skies in the eastern Bering Sea will way to 
stormy weather as the weather front moves into the area. A low 
will develop near Kamchatka Saturday and move rapidly eastward and 
strengthen by Sunday. This will bring some storm force winds into 
some of the Bering Sea marine areas. As the upper level low digs 
southward over the bring sea early next week it will keep the 
storm track over the area through the middle of next week. 


&& 


Long term forecast... 
while model agreement beyond early next week remains quite 
poor...there have been some small improvement in the models since 
yesterday. There is now good agreement that remain the remnants of 
tropical storm and move onshore south of the Panhandle...well 
south and east of our aor. The weak low that will form behind this 
system will also quickly dive southward into the North Pacific 
Tuesday- Wednesday...keeping precipitation confided to the Gulf 
Coast and western Bering through Wednesday. 


Because of the poor model agreement with low location...the long 
term forecast once again heavily used wpc guidance today (which 
used mostly ensembles and the 00z ec through tuesday). 


&& 


Afc watches/warnings/advisories... 
public...none. 
Marine...gale 178. 
Fire weather...none.
