NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southcentral and southwest Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Anchorage Alaska 
426 am akdt Sat Aug 1 2015 


Analysis and upper levels... 
upper level ridging continues to build from the southwestern 
Bering northeast into the southern interior of the Alaska 
Mainland...with a narrow yet weak upper level trough situated from 
an upper level low center near Yakutat west-southwest through the 
southern Gulf to just south of the Alaska Peninsula and eastern 
Aleutians. Between the ridge to the north and the trough to the 
south...an unstable atmosphere remains from the central Alaska 
Peninsula to near Kodiak Island to the coastal mountains of the 
southern Mainland north and east to the southern Copper River 
basin. To the north of this line...conditions continue to steadily 
stabilize as middle-level temperatures warm. 


&& 


Model discussion... 
models are in good enough agreement to give a high amount of 
confidence in the forecast well into the early part of next week. 
The main area of disagreement in the last 24 hours had been 
centered on a stacked low pressure system that develops Sunday in 
the North Pacific about 350 miles southeast of Dutch 
Harbor. The GFS and European (ec) models have come into good 
agreement with the placement and evolution of this 
feature...developing the low into a low-end near-gale force low 
that meanders north toward the Alaska Peninsula Monday and Tuesday before 
sliding slowly east the middle part of next week toward the far 
southwest Gulf of Alaska. The places this will impact the most 
will be the Alaska Peninsula (and possibly the eastern aleutians) 
on Monday into Tuesday and then the Gulf of Alaska region toward 
Wednesday and Thursday. Inland areas will not be impacted as much 
due to the track remaining in the far southern part of the 
forecast area regardless of the timing. High pressure with above 
normal temperatures and little if any shower activity can be 
expected especially for inland areas. 


&& 


Fire weather... 
the early part of next week will see some warmer temperatures and 
lower relative humidity values in conjunction with the upper level high pressure 
over southern Alaska. However these relative humidity values are not expected to 
be unusual low with lowest values in the middle to upper 20s in 
interior parts of southcentral Alaska. Humidity will be higher 
west of the Alaska Range as low level moisture off Bristol Bay 
will make it inland. 


&& 


Short term forecast southcentral Alaska (days 1 and 2)... 


The building ridge into the Mainland from the Bering Sea will 
continue the trend for warmer and drier conditions as we move 
through this weekend into early next week. An upper level 
shortwave moving ahead of the ridge axis will provide enough 
instability for some convective potential mainly along the Chugach 
Mountains in the southern Copper River basin and along the 
Talkeetna Mountains. The offshore flow will not be as significant 
today allowing for the sea breeze to develop in coastal locations. 
This will suppress high temperatures for coastal locations below 
yesterday's very warm readings. 


&& 


Short term forecast southwest Alaska (days 1 and 2)... 
high pressure continues to build in over the Bering with the 
associated ridge tracking over the southwest. This will continue 
to clear out the skies over the area...with the exception of 
afternoon with some residual instability and unstable conditions 
along the akpen. This along with daytime heating will result in 
convection over the Alaska Peninsula this afternoon. Otherwise, 
warmer air aloft will become more abundant over much of the 
southwest Mainland through the weekend...stabilizing the 
atmosphere and clearing out much of the cloud cover. With the high 
in place fog development is likely...especially along the coast. 
With westerly/onshore flow off the Bering near the Kuskokwim Delta 
fog will likely be advected inland. 


&& 


Short term forecast Bering Sea/Aleutians (days 1 and 2)... 
with high pressure over the Bering Sea...stratus and fog will 
remain abundant through the weekend. Further west...a weak trough 
will move in near the western Aleutians and stall out Saturday 
bringing in some lighter rain to the islands. Then on Sunday 
evening a North Pacific low will approach the Alaska Peninsula 
bringing some more steady rain to the area. 


&& 


Long term forecast (days 3 through 7)... 


Generally pleasant conditions marked by abundant sunshine and 
warmer temperatures will settle over the region through the middle 
of next week as high pressure remains over the Bering Sea and 
extends eastward over the Mainland. As mentioned in the model 
discussion section...a cutoff low develops over the North Pacific 
to the south of the Alaska Peninsula Sunday in response to the 
building ridge over the Bering. The areas impacted will be mainly 
confined to the akpen/eastern Aleutians before beginning to 
approach the western Gulf of Alaska region by Wednesday.
