FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
713 AM AKDT FRI JUL 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...A DRIER DAY IS ON TAP FOR MOST OF SOUTHCENTRAL AS
THE LOW OVER THE GULF EXITS TO THE EAST AND A RIDGE BUILDS IN FROM
THE WEST. OVER THE VERY NORTHERN TIER OF THE FORECAST AREA...ALONG
THE ALASKA RANGE...WHERE CLOUDY SKIES AND SHOWERS WILL MAINTAIN
COOL AND MOIST CONDITIONS. SATURDAY LOOKS LIKE A SIMILAR DAY WITH
DRY AND WARM CONDITIONS EXCEPT COOL AND WET ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE.

A SURFACE RIDGE OVER THE GULF WILL LEAD TO FAIRLY PERSISTENT GUSTY
WINDS THROUGH TURNAGAIN ARM INTO ANCHORAGE...ALONG THE KNIK RIVER
VALLEY INTO PALMER...AND ALONG THE COPPER RIVER. SEA BREEZES WILL
BE FAIRLY STIFF IN MOST PLACES WITH THE ONSHORE FLOW AND FAIRLY
WARM TEMPERATURES INLAND.

LOOKING A LITTLE FARTHER OUT IN TIME...RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES
WILL LIKELY RETURN TO SOUTHCENTRAL FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY AS A LARGE
UPPER LEVEL LOW WITH ASSOCIATED SURFACE FRONT MOVES IN FROM THE WEST.
