FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
620 AM AKDT TUE JUL 29 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A DISORGANIZED UPPER-LVL LOW OVER THE GULF OF AK WILL DRIFT INTO THE
NORTH PACIFIC BY WED NIGHT. A SERIES OF DISTURBANCES ROTATING AROUND
THIS BROAD FEATURE WILL KEEP CHANCES FOR WETTING RAIN HIGH OVER
EASTERN REACHES OF THE COPPER RIVER BASIN THROUGH EARLY WEDNESDAY.
ELSEWHERE...BREAKS IN THE CLOUD CANOPY WILL ALLOW PRECIPITATION TO
BE MORE SHOWERY. ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING OVER THE WESTERN COPPER RIVER BASIN...WITH A PERIPHERAL
SLIGHT CHANCE FOR THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS OF THE MAT-SU VALLEYS.

HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE SOUTHERN MAINLAND WED WITH SOME DRIER
CONDITIONS ANTICIPATED. DIURNAL SHOWERS MAINLY FOR HIGHER TERRAIN
AREAS WILL EXIST THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK...BUT THE THREAT OF
THUNDERSTORMS WANES.
