FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
556 PM AKDT SUN MAY 1 2016

UPDATED ZONE 145

.DISCUSSION...
THE LOW IN THE GULF OF ALASKA SOUTH OF KODIAK ISLAND WILL PERSIST
AND SLOWLY DRIFT NORTH AND EAST OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE
FRONT PUSHING INLAND ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST WILL BE FOLLOWED
BY ANOTHER RIDGE BUILDING IN ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST THIS
EVENING PRODUCING ANOTHER SHOT OF CROSS BARRIER AND CHANNELED WIND
ACROSS AND THROUGH THE CHUGACH MOUNTAINS. THIS RIDGING COMBINED
WITH THE INTERIOR TROUGH IS ALSO DRIVING THE COPER RIVER WINDS
THIS EVENING AND WILL AGAIN RESULT IN SOUTH WIND UP THE COPPER
RIVER MONDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THE PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED
WITH THE FRONT WILL BE MAINLY ON THE COASTAL SIDE OF THE MOUNTAINS.
HUMIDITIES WILL BE LOCALLY LOWER IN THE WINDIER LOCATIONS. COLDER
AIR ALOFT OVER THE NORTHEAST COPPER RIVER BASIN MONDAY AND TUESDAY
WITH INCREASED INSTABILITY WILL ELEVATE THE POSSIBILITY OF ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS.
