NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
329 PM AKDT MON JUL 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE PASSING OVER THE SOUTHWEST MAINLAND THIS
EVENING WILL BRING PERIODS OF RAIN TO THE INTERIOR SOUTHWEST THROUGH
THIS EVENING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL THEN QUICKLY BUILD INTO THE AREA LATE
THIS EVENING...PRODUCING DECREASING CLOUDS AND DRIER NORTHERLY FLOW.
THIS WILL DROP RELATIVE HUMIDITIES TO SOUTHWEST MAINLAND TO UNDER 30
PERCENT...HOWEVER WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN UNDER RED FLAG CRITERIA.
SKIES WILL THEN REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR WITH NO PRECIPITATION IN THE
FORECAST UNTIL LATE IN THE WORK WEEK.
