Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
746 AM AKDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level low will bring widespread wetting rains to the
southwest mainland today, particularly the Middle Kuskokwim Valley
and interior portions of Greater Bristol Bay. Rain will gradually
taper off tonight through Thursday morning, making for a warmer and
drier day on Thursday. Despite the warmer temperatures, extensive
cloud cover and high minimum RH values will keep fire weather conditions
well outside of any critical thresholds. Another system moving into the
region on Friday looks to bring a return of cooler and wetter
conditions heading into the weekend.
