Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
352 PM AKDT Thu Jun 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...

A slow warming and drying trend is underway across Southcentral.
The abundant moisture and cloud cover will gradually diminish as a
new area of ridging briefly brings drier and sunnier weather for
the weekend. Isolated wet thunderstorms will continue to be a
daily afternoon and evening threat in the Copper River Basin
along the Talkeetna Mountains and the Alaska Range as sunnier
conditions are expected.
