356 PM AKDT MON JUL 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
STEADY RAIN WILL QUICKLY TAPER OFF TO SHOWERS FROM NORTH TO SOUTH
OVERNIGHT ACROSS THE MAT-SU VALLEY...ANCHORAGE BOWL...AND KENAI
PENINSULA AS A STRONG UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE TRACKS FROM THE
SOUTHWEST MAINLAND INTO THE WESTERN GULF OF ALASKA. ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THIS EVENING ALONG THE
EASTERN SLOPES OF THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS WHERE CONDITIONS REMAIN
A LITTLE MORE UNSTABLE. PRECIPITATION LOOKS TO REMAIN LARGELY CONFINED
TO THE EASTERN COPPER RIVER BASIN FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK AS
ANOTHER DISTURBANCE APPROACHES FROM THE EAST LATE TUESDAY INTO
WEDNESDAY. THE REST OF SOUTHCENTRAL WILL UNDERGO A WARMING AND DRYING
TREND CHARACTERIZED BY DIURNAL CONVECTION ALONG THE MOUNTAINS AS
UPPER LEVEL RIDGING BUILDS INTO THE AREA. DESPITE THE WARMER AND
DRIER CONDITIONS...RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN
ABOVE 30 PERCENT AND WINDS WILL REMAIN RELATIVELY LIGHT THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.
