Southeast Alaska forecast discussion National Weather Service Juneau Alaska 525 am akdt Tuesday Sep 1 2015 Short term...low pressure near Dixon Entrance is still causing showers over the southern Panhandle this morning...but they are diminishing a little sooner than expected for the rest of the area. Flow has turned offshore on the backside of the low...helping to decrease showers and clouds due to downsloping/shadowing effects. Convection is still a possibility near the low center this morning...but the few lightning strikes detected overnight were south of our area. Some of the showers will still be heavy at times early on. The pressure gradient between high pressure in the Yukon and the low to the south increased overnight and north winds at Eldred Rock spiked up to +30kt. North-northwest interior passes/channels will see the strongest winds today with many marine areas reaching small craft level. However northeasterly passes are a little lighter this morning...for example Lynn Canal winds are blowing out of the chilkat valley instead of Taiya Inlet/Skagway. A few places over the central Panhandle have had some fog this morning...but the north winds are bringing in dryer air and should help to scour out any remaining showers/fog fairly early on. Models were in good agreement with the northerly pressure gradient and diminishing probability of precipitation. Used mainly the European model (ecmwf) and Gem to increase the pressure gradient slightly then adjusted speeds upward a bit more through north-S Inner Channels. Increased the diurnal temperature range between maximum/min for expected fewer clouds...with several locations falling below 40f early Wednesday morning. Forecast confidence is above average. Long term...upper trough will drift east away from the area for Wednesday- Thursday. Upper ridge will drift eastward across the Gulf but slowly flatten Wed-Thu. A shortwave trough will drop southward across the southern Panhandle Wednesday-Wednesday night. A complex system will move into the Gulf for late Thursday into the weekend. Used a blend of the 00z gfs20 with European model (ecmwf) for Wednesday-Wednesday night...then blended European model (ecmwf) with previous forecast for Thursday. Rest of the period was mostly left as is except did continue upward trend in probability of precipitation for the weekend. For Wed-Thu...most of the area will see plenty of sunshine under a deep layer northerly flow. The southern area will likely see more clouds Wednesday afternoon and night as shortwave moves through that area...and some showers are possible especially in the Hyder area. With most areas seeing decent amount of sunshine/clear conditions...have increased diurnal temperature ranges a bit for most of the area...with maximum temperatures boosted a few degrees in many areas...while the normally colder areas had min temperatures lowered some for Wednesday night. Limiting factor in the nighttime temperatures will be wind...with mainly the northern and central areas seeing decent northerly flow. Strongest winds will be around Lynn Canal with Small Craft Advisory level winds expected Wednesday and Wednesday night...but those will diminish Thursday. For Friday into the weekend...looking more likely that rain will move back into the area. Models still differ on details of systems moving into the area...but generally agree that precipitation will move into the area sometime Fri-Sat. Have boosted probability of precipitation to likely for mainly the weekend time frame...and if latest model trends hold...Friday may need higher probability of precipitation as well. && Ajk watches/warnings/advisories... public...none. Marine...Small Craft Advisory for pkz012-013-022-031-032-041-042. Small Craft Advisory due to seas for pkz043. && $$ Ferrin/rwt Visit US at http://www.Weather.Gov/Juneau
