NWS Forecaster Discussion




Southeast Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Juneau Alaska 
321 PM akdt Friday may 29 2015 


Short term...upper low southeast of the Panhandle will drift eastward into 
central British Columbia by early Sat. Several shortwave troughs will rotate around 
the upper low and across the far southeastern Panhandle through Sat. A weak 
shortwave trough will move southeast to near the far northern Panhandle Sat 
afternoon. Surface high over the Gulf will slowly weaken through Sat. 
Weak surface trough will remain across the southeastern Panhandle through Sat. 
Models in good agreement on these features...and no change was 
needed to the pressure grids. 


Main forecast concerns are marine layer clouds/fog...clouds and 
precipitation threat from upper low and shortwaves to the southern 
Panhandle...and potential for any thunderstorms from trough reaching the far 
north Sat. With the surface high over the Gulf weakening some...and 
boundary layer flow getting a more onshore component Sat...think 
marine layer may not completely burn off especially along the 
Cape Spencer to Cape Decision coastal area. Do expect marine layer 
to cover entire outer coast by late this evening with lowering 
clouds...and fog will likely move in to the coast late tonight. 
The fog should lift along the outer coast by late Sat morning 
although it could hang tough near pael. Some low clouds will 
likely get into the pags area overnight tonight...but they should 
dissipate by late Sat morning. 


For the southern Panhandle area...expect bands of mainly middle-level 
clouds to move across mainly the Inner Channels to the south of 
Sumner Strait tonight and Sat. The western edge of the cloud bands 
will gradually shift eastward late tonight and Sat. There may be some 
showers mainly in the Misty Fjords area this evening...then 
isolated thunderstorms will be possible mainly near Hyder Sat as more 
shortwave energy brushes by them...and they should be warmer Sat 
as well helping with the deeper convection potential. 


Over the far northern area Sat afternoon...shortwave trough dropping 
south toward the area will trigger thunderstorms over the southern Yukon...and 
some of these may get into the pagy area late in the day. Will at 
least see more middle-level clouds move in during the afternoon there. 


Otherwise...winds will do their usual diurnal cycle tonight and 
Sat over most of the Inner Channels. Larger scale pressure gradient 
is favoring more northwesterly flow...so channels that favor that flow will 
see stronger winds. Small Craft Advisory level winds are occurring near Cape 
Spencer at this time...and these should drop off tonight...but more Small Craft Advisory 
level winds are likely there Sat afternoon. Winds over the Gulf 
will generally stay in the 15-20 knots range...with lighter flow over 
the far northern Gulf near the coast. 


Maximum temperatures Sat should be near where they got to today over most 
Inner Channels...but some places near the outer coast will likely be a 
bit cooler due to a slightly more onshore wind. 


Long term...models remain in fair agreement through early next 
week for the weakening upper level low over British Columbia 
Saturday night gradually move east on Sunday and dissipate by 
Sunday evening. Upper ridge will rebuild behind and move east 
through Monday while another upper level shortwave trough across 
the Yukon drifts south to touch northernmost Panhandle. This upper 
trough may bring a slight chance of showers over the 
Skagway...Haines and Yakutat areas. Refreshed the inherited 
forecast with the 12z run European model (ecmwf) through late Monday. 


Surface high pressure will continue to dominate across the Gulf 
with an inverted trough of low pressure persisting over the 
Panhandle. Moderate to strong subsidence will likely to maintain 
marine stratus over the open ocean and invade the Panhandle 
coastal sections...especially farther inland across the southern 
Panhandle. The high pressure will slowly weaken and drift south as 
the inverted trough expands a little farther northwest. 


Models divert by middle week and used the new wpc ensemble guidance 
and maintained a pattern change from dry to wet weather by middle 
week through the second half of the week. Another upper level 
shortwave trough moving into the western Gulf on Monday will 
continue to push upper ridge eastward and gradually move into the 
central Gulf by Wednesday. A couple of upper level lows associated 
with the trough will move north to northeast across the northern 
Gulf through the second half of the week. Clouds will begin 
increasing on Tuesday and Wednesday across the Panhandle with 
increasing rain chances through the second half of the week.
