HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION
NWS ALASKA PACIFIC RIVER FORECAST CENTER ANCHORAGE AK
300 PM AKDT FRI AUG 28 2015

...FLOOD POTENTIAL...

RAINS CONTINUED ALONG THE EASTERN MAINLAND ON THURSDAY WHILE THE
SOUTHEAST STARTED TO GET INTO THE ACT. ONE TO TWO INCH RAIN AMOUNTS
WERE OBSERVED AT MANY LOCATIONS IN THE PANHANDLE. A FLOOD WATCH WAS
ISSUED FOR THE TAIYA RIVER OVERNIGHT AS THE RIVER ROSE TO JUST ABOVE
ACTION BUT THEN BEGAN TO FALL. FLOOD ADVISORY FOR THE CHENA RIVER
REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL SATURDAY AFTERNOON. PLEASE REFER TO THE
LATEST ADVISORY FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION.

FLOOD POTENTIAL IS CURRENTLY LOW OVER THE REST OF THE STATE.

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

THE BATTLE RAGES ON BETWEEN LOW IN THE ARCTIC AND THE RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. A TROUGH AND CLOSED LOW
EXTENDS DOWN INTO THE GULF FROM THE MAIN ARCTIC LOW AND WILL
CONTINUE TO BE THE FOCUS OF PRECIPITATION GENERATION DURING THE NEXT
TWO DAYS. THE ASSOCIATED FRONTAL BAND WILL MAKE LANDFALL BY SATURDAY
AND PRODUCED A STEADY DOSE OF PRECIPITATION OVER THE CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN PANHANDLE. UPSLOPE AREAS WILL CREATE MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN
OVER THE SOUTHERN END AND RANGE BETWEEN 2 AND 4 INCHES BY SATURDAY
MORNING. IN THE CENTRAL AREAS AMOUNTS WILL BE LIGHTER AND BETWEEN 1
AND 2 INCHES

IN THE LONGER RANGE... THE RIDGE GETS BEATEN DOWN BY THE COMBINATION
OF THE ARCTIC LOW SLIDING SOUTH AND ANOTHER LOW SOUTH OF THE
KAMCHATKA PENINSULA HEADING NORTH. SCATTERED SHOWERS OF RAIN AND
SNOW CARRY ON ACROSS THE NORTH WHILE TROUGHING OVER THE GULF BRINGS
RAIN TO THE SOUTHEAST.

300 PM AKDT THU AUG 26 2015

...FLOOD POTENTIAL...

A WIDESPREAD WETTING RAIN HIT THE MOST OF THE MAINLAND ON WEDNESDAY.
RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF BETWEEN A HALF AND AN INCH SPREAD OVER A LARGE
PORTION OF THE MAINLAND WITH EMBEDDED 1 TO 2 INCH AMOUNTS IN THE
ALASKA AND BROOKS RANGE AS WELL AS THE YUKON-TANANA UPLANDS. A FLOOD
ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR THE SOUTH FORK OF THE KUSKOKWIM RIVER
AND THE CHENA RIVER INCLUDING OTHER NEARBY SMALL STREAMS. PLEASE
REFER TO THE LATEST ADVISORY FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION.

FLOOD POTENTIAL IS CURRENTLY LOW OVER THE REST OF THE STATE.

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

THE FIGHT BETWEEN THE RIDGE OVER THE NORTHERN PACIFIC AND THE ARCTIC
LOW WILL RESULT IN A STRONG JET STREAM OVER SOUTHERN MAINLAND. THE
DYNAMICS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS RESULTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF CLOSED
LOW IN THE GULF BY FRIDAY MORNING. THE PRECIPITATION THAT IS
PREDICTED TO ACCOMPANY THE FRONT THAT SWINGS THROUGH FROM AN
UNUSUALLY NORTHERLY DIRECTION WILL BE QUITE EXTENSIVE AND RANGE
BETWEEN AN INCH TO 1.5 INCHES OVER THE NORTHERN PANHANDLE BY THURDAY
NIGHT. THE CONTINUATION OF THIS SYSTEM SOUTH RESULTS IN 2 TO 3
INCHES OF RAIN POSSIBLE OVER THE SOUTHERN END THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT
AS THE SYSTEM STALLS.
