Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
323 PM AKDT Wed Apr 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A fairly stagnant pattern will persist through Friday with fairly
abundant cloud cover and diurnal showers focused along the
mountains. One exception will be Thursday night as an upper level
disturbance brings a good chance of light rain across the Western
Kenai, Anchorage, and the Mat Valley. Winds will generally be
light through Friday morning. A ridge will then build along the
north Gulf coast Friday afternoon and evening, bringing gusty
winds to Turnagain Arm, the Knik River Valley, and along the
Copper River.
