.DISCUSSION...
THE STRONG LOW IN THE GULF OF ALASKA IS PUSHING A FRONT INLAND
ALONG THE COAST THAT WILL WEAKEN TO A TROUGH ALONG THE ALASKA
RANGE BY SUNDAY. STRONG EAST TO NORTHEAST WIND IS PREVAILING IN
ADVANCE OF THIS FRONT. THIS IS HELPING TO LOWER THE RELATIVE
HUMIDITY IN THOSE AREAS WITH THE STRONGER WIND. BLOWING DUST IS
ALONG THE MATANUSKA AND KNIK RIVERS AS A RESULT OF THE DRY AND
WINDY CONDITIONS. ONCE THE FRONT PASSES THE WIND WILL LET UP
UNTIL THE RIDGE BUILDS IN BEHIND IT. THIS WILL USHER IN ANOTHER
INCREASE IN THE CROSS BARRIER WIND AGAIN TONIGHT AND SUNDAY
SERVING TO MINIMIZE THE THREAT FOR RAIN OR SHOWERS ON THE LEE
SIDE OF THE MOUNTAINS THROUGH SUNDAY.
