AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE OVER THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA WILL MOVE INTO THE
NORTHERN BERING SEA OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. A COMPLEX NORTH PACIFIC LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL TRACK INTO SOUTHWEST ALASKA EARLY FRIDAY THEN
PIVOT TOWARDS THE SOUTHEASTERN BERING SEA AND ALASKA PENINSULA EARLY
SATURDAY. RESIDUAL SHOWERS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DISTURBANCE WILL TREND
TO STEADY RAIN AS THE MOISTURE WITH THE PACIFIC STORM ADVANCES.
WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH FRIDAY. AS THE LOW BEGINS
MOVING AWAY FROM THE REGION FRIDAY NIGHT...PRECIPITATION LOOKS TO
BECOME SPOTTIER AND MORE SHOWERY. THIS TREND IS EXPECTED INTO THE
WEEKEND.
