FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
255 PM AKDT TUE JUL 7 2015

.DISCUSSION...A WEATHER FRONT FROM THE BERING SEA HAS MOVED
NORTH AND EAST OVER MAINLAND ALASKA AND PRESENTLY LIES FROM
ABOUT KOTZEBUE TO FAIRBANKS TO TOK. IT WILL CONTINUE NORTH AND
MERGE THIS EVENING WITH THE OLD THERMAL TROUGH THAT HAS MOVED
NORTH AND IS NOW NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE BROOKS RANGE. THIS
TROUGH IS ALSO BEING REINFORCED BY COLD AIR MOVING IN FROM THE
NORTHEAST. WE EXPECT A 1002 MB LOW TO DEVELOP NEAR ARCTIC VILLAGE
EARLY THIS EVENING. THE WESTERN END OF THE TROUGH WILL REMAIN
NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE BROOKS RANGE...BUT THE PORTION FROM
ABOUT AMBLER EAST WILL MOVE SOUTH AS A COLD FRONT TO LIE FROM
AMBLER TO EAGLE LATE WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
