Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska...UPDATED
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
713 PM AKDT Mon Jun 26 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IS CANCELLED FOR YUKON FLATS AND SURROUNDING
UPLANDS FOR THE YUKON FLATS INCLUDING FORT YUKON...

.DISCUSSION...Scattered thunderstorms are currently ongoing from
Fort Yukon south in zone 220 and 224. As a result a Red Flag
Warning for abundant lightning is in effect until 10 pm this
evening for zone 220. Thunderstorms across this area will weaken
and dissipate later this evening.

Gap winds through Alaska Range passes will persist through the
rest of the week. For today and tomorrow temperatures and relative
humidity values will not be sufficient for a Red Flag Warning. Later
in the week temperature will warm in these areas with continued
strong gap flow which will result in near Red Flag conditions

Thermal troughing looks to redevelop for the northern Interior
tomorrow with isolated afternoon/evening thunderstorms for zones
218 219, 220 and 224, with the threat of convection shifting north
into the Brooks Range for Wednesday.

Dry weather will persist for the Yukon Flats and
southeastern Brooks Range with min RH values between 25 to 35
percent through this week.
