UPDATED ZONES 152 AND 155 TO ADD ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE OVER MOST OF THE REGION TODAY BEFORE
A WEATHER FRONT MOVES INTO THE AREA FROM THE SOUTH AFTER MIDNIGHT
TONIGHT. THERE IS A CHANCE FOR SCATTERED SHOWERS...MAINLY OVER THE
MIDDLE KUSKOKWIM VALLEY...AS A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE MOVES
ALONG THE KUSKOKWIM RANGE. AS THE FRONT PUSHES THROUGH THE REGION ON
SATURDAY...WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS ARE EXPECTED WITH THE HEAVIEST
RAINFALL TOTALS ALONG THE AHKLUN MOUNTAINS. WINDS WILL INCREASE
OVER THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA...THE BRISTOL BAY REGION...AND THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE MIDDLE KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AS THIS FRONT MOVES NORTHWARD.

MINIMUM RH VALUES TODAY WILL FALL INTO THE 30S FOR MANY LOCATIONS
WITH EXCELLENT RECOVERIES OVERNIGHT. ON SATURDAY...EXPECT THE
LOWEST RH VALUES BEFORE THE FRONT ARRIVES WITH VALUES INCREASING
AS RAINFALL BEGINS.
