FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
319 PM AKDT WED JUL 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
MAIN CONCERN IS HEAVY RAINFALL IN THE NEAR-TERM THROUGH TOMORROW
FOR NORTH SLOPES OF THE ALASKA RANGE AND PORTIONS OF THE
SOUTHEAST INTERIOR. A WEATHER SYSTEM CURRENTLY IN THE SOUTHERN
GULF OF ALASKA...ABOUT 1010 MB AT THE SURFACE...WILL MOVE TO
SOUTHEAST ALASKA BY TOMORROW MORNING. THIS LOW WILL WEAKEN THU
MORNING AS THE LOW ALOFT WEAKENS AS IT MOVES OVER SOUTHEAST AK.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS AND AXIS OF HEAVIEST PRECIP WERE REVISED SLIGHTLY.
THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS NOW ANTICIPATED IN A CORRIDOR FROM
DENALI NATIONAL PARK...TO EAGLE...THEN FROM NORTH POLE SOUTH AND
EAST...AND NORTHWEST OF TOK. WHEREIN...24 HOUR RAINFALL AMOUNTS UP
TO 1.5 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED BY TOMORROW MORNING...WITH LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. NO SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL IS EXPECTED FROM
FAIRBANKS NORTH AND WEST OVER THIS PERIOD.

SIMILAR TO SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TOMORROW.
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL BE ELEVATED AND SIMILAR TO TODAY.
THOUGH SOME DRYING CAN BE EXPECTED...PRIMARILY FROM THE SOUTH
SLOPES OF THE BROOKS RANGE AND NORTH OF THE YUKON RIVER TOMORROW.
OTHERWISE...NO RED FLAG CONCERNS GIVEN THE MOISTURE AND RAINFALL.
WARMING AND DRYING TREND DEVELOPING...BEGINNING SAT.
