FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
801 AM AKDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING INTO THE AREA WILL CONTINUE TO BRING
WARMING AND DRYING CONDITIONS TO THE SOUTHWEST MAINLAND THROUGH
SUNDAY...WITH LIMITED SHOWER ACTIVITY THROUGHOUT THE REGION. WHILE
DRY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP WITH SUNNY SKIES AND
OFFSHORE FLOW...IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT MIN RH`S WILL FALL BELOW
30 PERCENT THROUGH SATURDAY WITH LIGHT OFFSHORE WINDS.

RH VALUES MAY DROP NEAR 25 PERCENT AND HIGH TEMPERATURES CAN RISE
INTO THE MID 70S OVER THE MIDDLE KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AND INLAND AREAS
OF THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA ON SUNDAY...AS NORTHEASTERLY WINDS INCREASE
AHEAD OF AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE APPROACHING THE AREA FROM THE
EAST. THIS COULD ALSO BRING A CHANCE OF DIURNAL SHOWERS MAINLY TO
THE ALASKA RANGE DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS ON SUNDAY.
