804 AM AKDT TUE MAY 3 2016

.DISCUSSION...

STACKED LOW PRESSURE OVER THE NORTHWEST GULF OF ALASKA
WILL SLOWLY MOVE NORTH ACROSS THE KENAI MOUNTAINS AND
UPPER COOK INLET REGION THROUGH THIS EVENING. A WIDESPREAD
LOW-STABILITY ENVIRONMENT REMAINS ACROSS THE REGION.
THEREFORE...CONDITIONS WILL CHANGE LITTLE FROM MONDAY WITH
CONTINUED SOUTHEAST GAP WINDS THROUGH THE CHUGACH AND
KENAI MOUNTAIN RANGES. THESE GAP WINDS WILL HELP TO KEEP
DRIER CONDITIONS IN PLACE ON THE NORTH AND WESTERN SIDE
OF THE CHUGACH AND KENAI MOUNTAIN RANGES DUE TO
DOWNSLOPING...WITH SCATTERED RAIN SHOWER ACTIVITY IN THE
SUSITNA VALLEY.

THE PATTERN REPEATS WEDNESDAY AS ANOTHER FRONT MOVES TO
THE NORTH GULF COAST...BRINGING ANOTHER ROUND OF SOUTHEAST
GAP WINDS AND ISOLATED TO SCATTERED RAIN SHOWERS FOR
INLAND AREAS.
