ALASKA EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
1244 PM EDT THU JUL 02 2015

VALID 12Z MON JUL 06 2015 - 12Z FRI JUL 10 2015


THE 00Z/02 ECMWF WAS MUCH BETTER CORRELATED THAN THE 06Z/02 GFS
WITH BOTH THE ECENS AND NAEFS MEANS, SO IT SHOULD SERVE AS A
REASONABLE TEMPLATE FOR THE WINDS AND PRESSURES AT THE MEDIUM
RANGE. A BLEND OF THE ECENS AND NAEFS MEANS SHOULD AFFORD A GOOD
PROBABILISTIC BASE FOR THE TEMPERATURES AND POPS. AN OMEGA BLOCK
IS INDICATED IN MEANS FROM THE BERING SEA TO NORTHERN CANADA, WITH
THE ALASKA MAINLAND UNDER THE UPPER RIDGE. DRY COLD FRONTS SHOULD
CLIP THE NORTHEASTERN PART OF THE STATE, WITH A SERIES OF FRONTS
WASHING EASTWARD FROM THE ALEUTIANS AND DISSIPATING ACROSS THE
GULF--MUCH AS WAVES UPON THE SAND.
