.DISCUSSION...
THE COOL AND DAMP FRONTAL SYSTEM STRETCHED ACROSS BRISTOL BAY AND
THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA THIS AFTERNOON WILL SWING INLAND AND WEAKEN TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS TONIGHT AND THURSDAY MORNING. RIDGING BUILDING
IN THURSDAY AFTERNOON WILL QUICKLY END SHOWERS AND START A WARMING
AND DRYING TREND. ANOTHER FRONTAL SYSTEM WILL APPROACH THE WEST
COAST THURSDAY NIGHT HOWEVER THE STRENGTHENING UPPER LEVEL RIDGE
INLAND WILL PREVENT IT FROM MAKING IT VERY FAR ONSHORE. CONDITIONS
OVER ALL BUT THE IMMEDIATE COAST WILL CONTINUE TO WARM AND DRY
THROUGH SATURDAY AS THE UPPER RIDGE PERSISTS AND STRENGTHENS.
