Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
320 PM AKDT Tue Jul 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...A weak low pressure system moving through the
northern West Coast will keep flow off the Bering Sea,
maintaining a maritime influence over the West Coast and Western
Interior. This will keep RH values above 40 percent for the
forecast area for the next few days. Showers and cloud cover will
persist through tomorrow, with a good chance of wetting rain
tonight as the low pressure system moves inland over Kotzebue
Sound. Some warming and drying is expected Wednesday night and
Thursday. A weather front approaching from the Bering Sea on
Thursday will cause an increased chance showers Thursday night and
Friday.

A thermal trough with moderate instability will develop Wednesday
and cause isolated thunderstorms for portions of the Western
Interior. The trough will move to the southern interior Thursday
and again allow isolated thunderstorms Thursday in that area.
