409 PM AKDT THU JUL 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A GRADUAL DRYING TREND WILL CONTINUE AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILD INTO
SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA THROUGH SATURDAY. EXPECT ISOLATED WET
THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH THIS EVENING OVER THE COPPER
RIVER BASIN...THE SUSITNA VALLEY...AND ALONG THE
TALKEETNA...CHUGACH...AND KENAI MOUNTAINS. CONDITIONS WILL BECOME
LESS FAVORABLE FOR THUNDERSTORMS ON FRIDAY WITH ISOLATED WET
THUNDERSTORMS BEING LIMITED TO PORTIONS OF THE COPPER RIVER BASIN
AND CHUGACH AND KENAI MOUNTAINS.

AS THE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION...CLOUD COVER WILL
DECREASE WITH WARMING TEMPERATURES. THIS WILL BRING MINIMUM RH
VALUES DOWN INTO THE MID TO LOWER 30S IN MANY INLAND LOCATIONS
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. OVERNIGHT RH RECOVERIES ARE EXPECTED TO BE
EXCELLENT.
