NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
720 PM akdt Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Analysis and upper levels... 
an Omega block remains over the area. The upper level high is 
centered over the northern Bering Sea with an upper low centered 
just to the west of the western Aleutians and another low over 
centered over the southwest Gulf of Alaska. A weak weather system 
is "rounding" the high and pushing moisture (slowly) into 
southwest Alaska from the northwest. 


&& 


Model discussion... 
forecast confidence with the afternoon package is higher 
than normal. The numerical models are once again in good 
agreement as a stable blocking pattern makes their job easier. 
Some discrepancies begin to show up on Sunday as The Block looks 
like it will begin to weaken. 


&& 


Short term forecast... 


For south central Alaska...the blocking pattern will for the most 
part keep southern Alaska dry through Saturday. One exception is 
some diurnal showers over the mountains...though these should be 
quite limited with the upper ridge overhead. Another exception is 
the Susitna Valley area as some moisture pushes around the high 
into that area from the northwest later Friday into Saturday. This 
will then retreat northward on Sunday. 


Late Saturday Sunday the Gulf low will begin to push northward. 
This will bring a (rather weak) weather front with it. 
Precipitation from this front will likely reach Kodiak Island late 
Saturday...pushing into the Gulf Coast Sunday morning...and 
possibly into inland areas later Sunday. 


For southwest Alaska...moisture is sliding over the ridge into the 
area from the northwest. Eastward progression of precipitation 
will stall probably just west of Dillingham...and south of Nushagak 
hills. Thus the weather will be divided for the next few days with 
showers over the northwest portion of the area and dry conditions 
in the Bristol Bay area. On Sunday as the Gulf low moves north the 
system over the northwest portion of the area will dissipate...but 
moisture moving up from the south will begin to push into 
southwest Alaska. 


For the Bering Sea/Aleutians...high pressure will remain over the 
Bering Sea through Sunday...slowly moving to the northwest through 
Saturday then beginning to weaken and shrink in size on Sunday. 
The upper low to the west of the Aleutians will slowly drift 
north and weaken through Saturday then be ejected northward on 
Sunday by another upper low pushing out of Siberia. 


&& 


Long term forecast... 


The Omega blocking over the Bering Sea will continue to retrograde 
to the south through the early part of next week. Stratus and fog 
will persist with light winds through Monday. An upper level weak 
shortwave trough will drop down from the upper Kuskokwim valley 
into the southwest Alaska region by Monday. This will bring 
increased clouds and showers throughout the area. An upper level 
low will start to enter the southwestern Gulf of Alaska by 
Monday. An inverted trough associated with this low will extend 
through the Alaska Peninsula and through the Alaska Range. This 
will bring northeasterly winds and increased cloud cover with rain 
along the coastline and spreading inland through the early part of 
next week.
