FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
342 PM AKDT THU JUL 24 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER-LVL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH SOUTHWEST ALASKA TONIGHT
WITH ASSOCIATED RAINS ENDING FROM WEST TO EAST OVERNIGHT. THE FOCUS
OF THE RAIN WILL BE OVER THE EASTERN KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AND NORTHEASTERN
REACHES OF BRISTOL BAY. CONDITIONS IN THE WAKE OF THIS DISTURBANCE
FRIDAY AND INTO THE WEEKEND WILL BE MARKEDLY DRIER...WITH SOME LOCAL
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES DIPPING TO NEAR 30 PERCENT. WINDS HOWEVER WILL
REMAIN WEAK ENOUGH TO NEGATE RED FLAG DANGER.

ONLY WEAK WEATHER FEATURES ARE EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE SOUTHWEST
MAINLAND THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH A FEW PASSING SHOWERS POSSIBLE
NEAR THE HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS. A LOW IN THE GULF OF ALASKA MAY MOVE
TOWARDS THE SOUTHERN MAINLAND BY MID NEXT WEEK WITH INCREASING CLOUDS
AND CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION.
