FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
722 AM AKDT TUE JUL 26 2016

.DISCUSSION...
SHOWERS WILL BE WIDESPREAD ACROSS THE FORECAST AREA TODAY AS THE UPPER
LEVEL LOW STALLS SOUTH OF THE AKPEN. THE LOW WILL SEND ANOTHER EASTERLY
WAVE ACROSS SOUTHWEST AK THAT WILL INTERACT WITH THE THERMAL TROUGH OVER
THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA. SOME DAYTIME HEATING WILL ALSO OCCUR IN THAT REGION
AND IN ADDITION TO SHOWERS...A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING WET
THUNDERSTORMS WILL RESULT.

ON WED MORE RAIN AND SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS SOUTHWEST AK. ONE LAST
WAVE WILL MAKES ITS WAY ACROSS THE REGION AND WILL INTERACT NOT ONLY WITH
THE THERMAL TROUGH OVER THE DELTA...BUT WITH AN APPROACHING BERING FRONT.
ONCE AGAIN THIS WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS OVER
THE DELTA.
