Northern Alaska forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Fairbanks Alaska

models similar through 48 hours. Weak upper level ridge over
northern Alaska and into far eastern Russia will get pinched off
late Monday night. This will occur as the upper level low over the
Canadian archipelago extends its trough southwestward into
northern Alaska to link up with the upper low in the northern Gulf
of Alaska.

The upper level trough will begin to pour colder air into
northern Alaska starting Tuesday. The high positioned in the high
Arctic will remain fairly constant and build slightly through the
week while the low in the Bering Sea will fill but then the
gradient will remain a steady factor over northwest Alaska through
the week because of the numerous lows moving east across the
Aleutian chain.

Winds along the Northwest Arctic coast will continue to vary
between marine advisory and warning level speeds for the remainder
of the week.

A weak shortwave will move up the eastern portion of the state on
Wednesday. This may provide a few snow showers from about Denali park to
Fort Yukon on Wednesday. Expect light accumulations with this although
areas along the Alaska Range could see a couple of inches of snow.

Winds through the passes in the western portion of the Brooks
range and the plains of the north slopes of the Brooks range will
persist through much of the week with the tight gradient in this

Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4...none
