Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Western Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
526 AM AKDT Tue Jul 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...Over the west coast and western interior relative
humidity will remain above 40 percent today and Wednesday. Over
northern sections of the west coast there will be a good chance
of wetting rain today as low pressure moves inland over Kotzebue
Sound. The low will track south to the Lower Yukon Valley tonight
and to the Upper Kuskokwim Valley Wednesday morning with a good
chance of wetting rain within a couple hundred miles of its path.
Warming and drying is expected Wednesday night and Thursday. A
weather front approaching from the Bering Sea on Thursday will
cause an increased chance showers Thursday night and Friday.

A thermal trough with moderate instability will develop over the
central to eastern interior Wednesday and cause isolated thunderstorms
for portions of the Lower Koyukuk and Middle Yukon Valleys, and the
Upper Kuskokwim Valley on Wednesday. The trough will move to the
southern interior Thursday and again allow isolated thunderstorms
Thursday over the southern interior.
