Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
635 AM AKDT Mon Jun 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...The area of instability that has been triggering
some afternoon and evening thunderstorms in the Susitna Valley
and Copper River Basin has moved east. The northern Copper River
Basin along the Alaska Range is the last remaining section of the
area that could potentially see an isolated wet thunderstorm today.
The front moving into south central Alaska is rather weak but
will increase cloud cover and humidity while cooling off the
temperatures. Winds will increase through Turnagain Arm and along
the Copper River this evening through the middle of the week.
