ALASKA EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS WEATHER PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
1116 AM EST TUE MAR 03 2015

VALID 12Z SAT MAR 07 2015 - 12Z WED MAR 11 2015


STILL A VERY PREDICTABLE MEDIUM RANGE ACROSS THE ALASKA REGION.
THE BIG BERING-SEA LOW IS STILL ON TRACK TO PRODUCE WIDESPREAD
HEAVY SNOWS OVER THE DEEP INTERIOR SATURDAY, WITH A SHARP COOLDOWN
STATEWIDE IN ITS WAKE BY EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE GREATEST MODEL
SPREAD NEXT WEEK INVOLVES THE TRACK OF THE LOW ON THE PACIFIC SIDE
OF THE ALEUTIANS. THE EC CAMP IS TO THE NORTH NEAR THE ISLAND
CHAIN, WHILE THE GEFS/NAEFS CAMP IS SUPPRESSED WELL TO THE SOUTH.
A BLEND OF THE GUIDANCE SEEMS PRUDENT AT THIS POINT WITH REGARD TO
THAT SYSTEM, CONSIDERING BOTH THE TIME RANGE AND THE FACT THAT THE
FLOW BEGINS TO OPEN AGAIN.
