HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION
NWS ALASKA PACIFIC RIVER FORECAST CENTER ANCHORAGE AK
300 PM AKDT MON PEP 26 2016

...FLOOD POTENTIAL...

THE FLOOD POTENTIAL FOR THE REST OF THE STATE IS LOW.

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION....

THE UPPER LEVEL TROUGH THAT WAS NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE STATE
DURING THE LAST 2 DAYS HAS FINALLY MOVED OFF TO THE EAST. THIS
ALLOWED A STRONG SHORT WAVE TO DIVE SOUTHWEST THROUGH THE EASTERN
BARING SEA AND INTO THE WESTERN GULF WHILE A TROUGH EXTENDING DOWN
FROM AN ARCTIC LOW SWINGS THROUGH THE NORTHERN TIER. RAIN AND SNOW
OR A MIX THEREOF WILL BE LIMITED TO THE BROOKS RANGE AND NORTH
SLOPE.  WEAK TOUGHING NEAR THE PANHANDLE WILL KEEP SHOWERS IN THE
FORECAST AS THE LOW IN THE WESTERN GULF VERY SLOWLY MOVES EAST OVER
THE NEXT TWO DAYS.

...PRECIPITATION...

SELECTED PRECIPITATION TOTALS OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS ENDING AT 4 AM
TODAY:
