Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
449 PM AKDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION... The thermal trough has moved south to the Alaska Range
and Upper Tanana Valley today. Isolated Thunderstorms and showers
will continue along the Alaska Range this evening. Warmer and
drier conditions over most of the area this weekend as high
pressure moves into the Interior. A thermal trough at the surface
will also persist, causing isolated thunderstorms to fire for
many parts of the Interior through Saturday. Despite the warming
and drying trend, no Red Flag conditions are expected.
