NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
614 AM AKDT WED JUL 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER-LVL DISTURBANCE OVER THE FAR EASTERN COPPER RIVER BASIN WILL
WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE BY THIS EVENING WITH LIGHT RAINS TAPERING OFF AS
THIS OCCURS. ELSEWHERE...HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL
ALASKA THROUGH FRIDAY WITH GENERALLY WARM AND DRY WEATHER EXCEPT FOR A
FEW PASSING NON WETTING RAIN SHOWERS ALONG HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS.

A WEATHER FRONT WILL DROP DOWN FROM NORTHWEST ALASKA TO THE ALASKA
RANGE THIS WEEKEND. THE FRONT LOOKS TO STALL AND WEAKEN NEAR THE RANGE
BUT MAY BRING SOME INCREASED CLOUDS AND CHANCES FOR RAIN TO NORTHERN
REACHES OF THE SUSITNA VALLEY.
