FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
751 AM AKDT WED MAY 25 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A BROAD UPPER RIDGE BUILDS EAST ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL THROUGH THURSDAY
BRINGING WARM TEMPERATURES AND GENERALLY DRY CONDITIONS. HIGHER CLOUDS
OVERSHOOTING THE RIDGE WILL SPREAD ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHCENTRAL TODAY.
SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE, COPPER RIVER BASIN, AND
ALONG THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS THROUGH THIS EVENING. ON THURSDAY, THE
FLOW ALOFT BECOMES MORE NORTHERLY, SO MOST OF THE RAIN/SHOWER POTENTIAL
WILL BE CONFINED MAINLY ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE AND NORTH. A PINCH IN
THE PRESSURE GRADIENT BETWEEN THE BUILDING MAINLAND RIDGE AND WEAK LOW
PRESSURE TROUGH OVER THE GULF WILL CONTINUE PERIODS OF OUTFLOW WINDS
ACROSS THE EASTERN KENAI PENINSULA AND NORTH GULF COAST. GUSTY
NORTHERLY GAP FLOWS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE THROUGH THE ALASKA RANGE THURSDAY
AND THURSDAY NIGHT. RH VALUES OUTFLOW WINDS WILL DELAY THE ONSET OF SEA BREEZES ALONG FROM THE
EASTERN KENAI PENINSULA TO THE NORTH GULF COAST AND THAT COMBINED
WITH DOWNSLOPE WARMING WILL ALLOW AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB
WELL INTO THE 60S THROUGH THURSDAY.
