The computer model forecasts from this morning are showing a strong ridge building over southeast Alaska this weekend and then perhaps intensifying further next week. Some of the solutions look quite extreme, but it's too early to pin down the exact outcome. But regardless, warm southerly flow should allow interior Alaska temperatures to defy the seasonal trend for a while longer.
For those interested in the technical forecast, the maps below show the ECMWF and GFS ensemble mean 500 mb height and 850 mb temperature forecasts for Wednesday afternoon. The model agreement is pretty good at this point.
