FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
339 PM AKDT FRI JUL 11 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE SOUTHERN KUSKOKWIM DELTA WILL TRACK
TO THE ALASKA PENINSULA NEAR COLD BAY ON SATURDAY AND THEN OUT TO THE
NORTH PACIFIC ON SUNDAY. THE STEADIEST RAINS OVER SOUTHWEST ALASKA
ARE TAPERING TO PASSING SHOWERS AS THIS FEATURE MOVES AWAY FROM
THE REGION. SHOWERS SHOULD BECOME MORE FOCUSED TO THE HIGHER TERRAIN
AND BECOME MORE DIURNAL IN NATURE AS THE WEEKEND WEARS ON. INSTABILITY
IN THE RESIDUAL AIRMASS LOOKS INSUFFICIENT TO PRODUCE ANY THUNDERSTORMS
HOWEVER.

A VIGOROUS UPPER-LVL DISTURBANCE WILL APPROACH FROM FAR NW ALASKA ON
MONDAY. AT THIS JUNCTURE...IT APPEARS THIS DISTURBANCE WILL REMAIN
MOSTLY OVER CENTRAL/INTERIOR ALASKA. HOWEVER IT MAY BRUSH THE LOWER
KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AND TO A LESSER DEGREE THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA WITH A
QUICK SHOT OF WETTING RAIN ON MONDAY.
