MODELS SIMILAR THROUGH 60 HOURS. UPPER LEVEL LOW AT THE POLE AND
ANOTHER ONE IN THE GULF OF ALASKA WITH A LONG WAVE TROUGH
CONNECTING THE TWO LOWS. UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE BERING SEA.

THE MODELS ALSO DROP AN UPPER LEVEL LOW SOUTH OVER THE NORTH SLOPE
ON MON MORNING. THIS WILL JUST SEND ANOTHER SHOT OF COOLER WEATHER
TO NORTHERN ALASKA.

EAST WEST ORIENTATION OVER THE ARCTIC COAST BY TUE EVENING.

UPPER LOW IN THE GULF WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD SHORT WAVES UP INTO
THE EASTERN PORTION OF THE STATE THROUGH NEXT WEEK.

NEXT SYSTEM WILL MAKE LANDFALL SUN NIGHT OR MON MORNING FROM
ABOUT THE SEWARD PENINSULA SOUTHWARD AND PROVIDE SOME MODERATE
RAIN FROM GALENA SOUTHEASTWARD BUT HYDRO ISSUES ARE NOT A CONCERN
AT THIS TIME.

COASTAL HAZARD POTENTIAL DAYS 3 AND 4...NONE
