Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
638 AM AKDT Wed Jun 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...

Persistent southerly flow will provide a continued influx of
moisture leading to cool, cloudy, and wet conditions across SW AK
through tonight. We`ll see a brief break in precipitation late
Wednesday night through Thursday morning before another low
pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska moves north during the day
on Thursday bringing a subtropical influx of moisture to the
region. Strong easterly flow will develop leading to downsloping
and decreased precipitation chances on the western leeward side of
the AKPEN, though heavier amounts of rain are expected on the
eastern windward side. Moisture is still expected to make it into
mainland southwest Alaska during the day on Thursday leading to
another round of precipitation for the area. Winds will be gusty
as easterly flow becomes funneled through terrain gaps and down
into the Kuskokwim River Valley.
