.DISCUSSION...

A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN PORTION OF SOUTHCENTRAL
WILL MOVE EAST WEDNESDAY...ALLOWING FOR A GRADUAL DRYING TREND AND
WARMING TEMPERATURES. MID AND HIGH CLOUDS MOVING IN FROM THE
BERING WILL ALSO SPREAD JUST ENOUGH MOISTURE FOR HIGH MOUNTAIN
SHOWERS WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT ACROSS THE ALASKA RANGE AND
TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS...BUT RIDGING WILL BECOME DOMINANT BY
THURSDAY.

WARM AND LARGELY DRY WILL CONTINUE INTO THE MEMORIAL WEEKEND AS A
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE BUILDS IN.
