FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
324 PM AKDT FRI MAY 29 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL STAY JUST OFFSHORE ALONG THE
SOUTHWESTERN COAST THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT BEFORE MOVING FURTHER
OFFSHORE ON SUNDAY MORNING. HIGH PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE
OVER CENTRAL ALASKA THROUGH SUNDAY...BRINING MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES
AND DRY CONDITIONS TO INLAND LOCATIONS. RH VALUES WILL DECREASE
INTO THE MID 20S OVER MUCH OF THE MIDDLE KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AND THE
WESTERN ALASKA RANGE THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH EXCELLENT NIGHTTIME
RECOVERIES.

AS THE STALLED FRONT MOVES WESTWARD ON SUNDAY...A WEAK UPPER-LEVEL
DISTURBANCE MOVES THROUGH THE INTERIOR SECTIONS OF SOUTHWEST ALASKA.
THIS...COMBINED WITH MORNING HEATING...WILL HELP TO DESTABILIZE THE
ATMOSPHERE AND SHOULD PRODUCE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND SOME ISOLATED
WET THUNDERSTORMS SUNDAY AFTERNOON. THE AREA WITH THE BEST CHANCE
OF ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE ALONG THE NORTHERN KILBUCK
MOUNTAINS BETWEEN BETHEL AND ANIAK AND SOUTHEASTWARD TOWARDS
NEW STUYAHOK.
