629 AM AKDT TUE AUG 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE OVER SOUTH CENTRAL ALASKA WILL BEGIN TO WEAKEN
LATER TODAY AS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEMS TO THE NORTH AND TO THE SOUTH
MOVE TOWARD THE AREA. THIS WILL ALLOW A FEW THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP
THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING OVER THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS. ON WEDNESDAY
THESE LOWS WILL BE NEAR ENOUGH TO BRING SOME SHOWERS TO MUCH OF THE
AREA...WITH SOME THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE ON THE MOUNTAINS SURROUNDING
THE SUSITNA VALLEY. SOME WINDS WILL ALSO DEVELOP ON WEDNESDAY OVER
THE COPPER RIVER BASIN. HUMIDITIES COULD DROP BELOW 30 PERCENT NEAR
THE COPPER RIVER...BUT THE WINDS WILL STAY BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS.
