The Anchorage forecast office produces graphic analyses of sea surface temperatures and sea ice as well as five day sea ice forecasts year round. Scheduled sea ice analyses and 5-day sea ice forecasts are produced Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A sea surface temperature chart of Alaskan waters is produced Tuesday and Thursday. Annotated satellite analyses of sea surface temperatures and sea ice are produced when clear skies allow these features to be observed.

Amended Ice forecasts are made anytime the Ice Forecaster becomes aware that the forecast is in error. Please call (907) 266-5138 or fax to (907) 266-5188 if the analysis in your area is wrong. You may also send email to the Ice Desk.
