FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
705 AM AKDT WED SEP 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE OVERHEAD TODAY PROVIDING
A SUNNY DAY ACROSS MOST OF SOUTHCENTRAL. THE LAST REMNANT OF
WINDY CONDITIONS WILL DIE OFF THIS MORNING. WITH LIGHTER WINDS
ACROSS THE REGION EXPECT MINIMUM RHS TO BE A HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS
DAYS.

A BIG CHANGE IS ON THE WAY WITH A LONG STREAM OF TROPICAL MOISTURE
MOVING UP FROM THE NORTH-CENTRAL PACIFIC TOWARD SOUTHCENTRAL.
THIS WILL BRING RAIN TO KODIAK ISLAND BEGINNING TODAY THEN SPREAD
NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE REST OF SOUTHCENTRAL TONIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY. WITH GENERALLY WEAK LOW LEVEL WINDS AND ABUNDANT
MOISTURE EXPECT WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS FOR ALL EXCEPT PERHAPS
PORTIONS OF THE COPPER RIVER BASIN. RAIN WILL LINGER THROUGH
FRIDAY BEFORE EXITING TO THE EAST.

THE LONGER TERM OUTLOOK IS FOR AN ACTIVE PATTERN WHICH SHOULD
GENERALLY PROVIDE WET CONDITIONS ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL WITH
OCCASIONAL BRIEF DRY BREAKS IN BETWEEN.
