.DISCUSSION...
THE 988 MB LOW WEST OF ST MATTHEW ISLAND WILL WEAKEN TO 998 MB AS
IT MOVES NORTH TO LIE OVER THE GULF OF ANADYR FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
WILL DISSIPATE OVER THE SOUTHERN CHUKCHI SEA ON SATURDAY. THE
WEATHER FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM HAS NOT BEEN MUCH OF
A PRECIPITATION PRODUCER SO FAR...THOUGH WE STILL HAVE SOME
CONCERNS ABOUT FREEZING RAIN IN ZONES 211 AND 213. THE MODELS
AGREE IN MOVING IT INLAND...EVENTUALLY BRINGING AT LEAST A CHANCE
OF SNOW EVEN TO THE EASTERN INTERIOR. THE MAIN TROUGH ALOFT...
ASSOCIATED WITH THE PARENT LOW ALOFT OVER THE BERING SEA...IS
MOVING IN BEHIND THE FRONT AND WILL KEEP IT ACTIVE...AT LEAST
AFTER A FASHION.

ANOTHER LOW...ABOUT 980 MB...WILL LIKELY MOVE NORTH OUT OF THE
PACIFIC INTO THE BERING SEA WEST OF ADAK SATURDAY NIGHT. THIS
ONE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE CYCLONICALLY NORTHWEST...WEST...AND
SOUTHWEST OVER THE CENTRAL BERING SEA...NEVER GETTING MUCH NORTH
OF 60N...THOUGH THE WEATHER FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH IT WILL
LIKELY BRING SOME MORE PRECIPITATION TO OUR WEST COAST ZONES
BEGINNING SUNDAY...AND INTO THE INTERIOR ON MONDAY.

THE RIDGE OVER THE BEAUFORT SEA AND THE NORTHERN CHUKCHI SEA
WILL PERSIST.


 THE RIDGE OVER THE
BEAUFORT SEA AN



COASTAL HAZARD POTENTIAL DAYS 3 AND 4...NONE
