FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
730 AM AKDT SAT JUL 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD INTO
THE REGION TODAY LEADING TO A WARMING AND DRYING TREND THROUGH MONDAY.
THE WARMEST AND DRIEST DAY IN THE UPCOMING WEEK LOOKS TO BE ON MONDAY.
TUESDAY AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE APPROACHING FROM THE WEST WILL HELP
TO PUSH THE RIDGE OFF TO THE EAST...HELPING TO COOL TEMPERATURES AND
AND INCREASE RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES. CHANCES OF RAIN WILL INCREASE
ON TUESDAY AS THE LOW MOVES EASTWARD.

A THERMAL TROUGH WILL SET UP TODAY ALONG A GALENA TO DELTA JUNCTION AXIS.
GUSTY WINDS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN AREAS NEAR THE
THERMAL TROUGH. WIND GUSTS TO 30 MPH ARE POSSIBLE IN THE VICINITY OF DELTA
JUNCTION THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES IN THE
UPPER 20 PERCENT RANGE...HOWEVER...GIVEN THE RECENT RAINFALL...THE FUELS
IN THIS AREA ARE STILL TOO MOIST FOR A RED FLAG TO BE ISSUED FOR THIS AREA.

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE TODAY WILL GENERALLY BE LIMITED TO AREAS ALONG
THE CANADIAN BORDER IN ZONES 220 AND 224.
