Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
349 PM AKDT Sat Apr 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Rain showers will move through the Matanuska Valley and southern
Kenai Peninsula this evening as a weak trough passes overhead.
Behind this trough, a front moving through the Gulf will provide
increasing cloud cover to much of the area Sunday-Monday, however
as downsloping develops widespread wetting rains are not expected
in the lower elevations. Instead this front will bring gusty winds
through Turnagain Arm, Knik Arm, and along the Copper River, with
the strongest winds expected on Sunday.

A low pressure system will then move into the Gulf on Tuesday,
causing cooler and less dry conditions to continue into the middle
of next week.
