A thermal trough stretching from Eagle to Bettles will persist
through tonight and then move to Chicken to Nenana to Ambler by
4pm Thu...and to Chicken to Nenana to Anaktuvuk Pass by 4pm Fri.
Moderate instability along and south of the trough will allow
isolated afternoon thunderstorms to form over most of the Eastern
Interior today and over the southern Interior Thu...then expanding
to the Western Interior Fri.

A weather front over the western Bering Sea will move to the
West Coast of Alaska Thu night and Fri. Rain will spread to
into the West Coast Thu night and Fri.
