FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
737 AM AKDT THU JUL 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...A WEATHER SYSTEM CURRENTLY OVER SOUTHEASTERN ALASKA
WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE TO THE NORTHEAST AND WEAKEN TODAY. THIS WEATHER
SYSTEM WILL BRING RAIN TO THE NORTH SLOPES OF THE ALASKA RANGE AND THE
SOUTHEASTERN INTERIOR. HIGHEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED IN ZONE
224. NO SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TODAY NORTH AND WEST OF FAIRBANKS.
WINDS TODAY WILL INCREASE TODAY ACROSS THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN INTERIOR
AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT TIGHTENS UP A BIT AS THE WEATHER SYSTEM APPROACHES.

LOWEST RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TODAY WILL BE IN ZONES 218 AND 220...WHERE
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES COULD DROP INTO THE UPPER 20 PERCENT RANGE.
WINDS IN THESE AREAS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN UNDER 15 MPH...SO AT THIS POINT
I DO NOT HAVE ANY RED FLAG CONCERNS.

LOOKING AHEAD...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO BUILD INTO THE REGION
ON FRIDAY EVENING. THIS RIDGE WILL BRING A SIGNIFICANT WARMING AND DRYING TREND
TO THE INTERIOR BEGINNING ON SATURDAY AND CONTINUING INTO AT LEAST MONDAY.
