FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
752 AM AKDT WED JUL 27 2016

.DISCUSSION...A POTENT STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO THE GULF TODAY
WITH WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN SPREADING TO THE GULF
COAST AND KODIAK ISLAND THIS AFTERNOON. MOST INLAND AREAS WILL SEE
A BREAK IN STEADY PRECIP TODAY...THOUGH THERE IS STILL THE THREAT
OF A FEW SHOWERS. STEADY RAIN WILL THEN SPREAD INLAND TONIGHT WITH
WETTING RAINS LIKELY ACROSS A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF SOUTHCENTRAL.

EXPECT A GRADUAL DRYING OUT ON THURSDAY AS THE LOW EXITS EASTWARD
ACROSS THE GULF. HOWEVER, AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL APPROACH FROM
THE WEST THURSDAY NIGHT BRINGING YET ANOTHER SHOT OF RAIN...ESPECIALLY
ALONG THE WEST SIDE OF MOUNTAIN RANGES.
