Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
402 PM AKDT Mon May 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...Warmer air aloft associated with a weather front that
has moved in from the south has stabilized the airmass aloft over
most of Interior Alaska. Though the airmass remains moderately
unstable at low levels, it is also cooler and more moist, and
cloud cover has limited diurnal warming. There is little potential
for deep convection over most of the area, though a bit persists in
the Eagle area in the east, and in the Galena-Anvik-Ruby area in the
west. We expect even less thunderstorm activity on Tuesday, and
better prospects for wetting rain in areas that haven`t already got
theirs. Winds aloft will turn south and increase Wednesday. A
strong chinook will dry out southeast Interior Alaska, but the
rest of the Interior will remain cool and moist.
