FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
632 AM AKDT WED JUL 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
THE SHOWERY PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN OVER SOUTHWESTERN ALASKA
THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING WITH MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION REMAINING
EAST OF THE KILBUCK/AHKLUN MOUNTAINS. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TODAY OVER THE MIDDLE KUSKOKWIM VALLEY AND THE BRISTOL
BAY REGION NORTH OF DILLINGHAM AS THE ATMOSPHERE WILL REMAIN
UNSTABLE ENOUGH FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT. CONDITIONS WILL BE
LESS FAVORABLE FOR THUNDERSTORMS ON THURSDAY...ALTHOUGH AN ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORM OVER THE BRISTOL BAY REGION WOULD BE POSSIBLE
ON THURSDAY AFTERNOON IF THERE IS ENOUGH BREAKS IN CLOUD COVER TO
ALLOW FOR ADDITIONAL DAYTIME HEATING.

MINIMUM RH VALUES TODAY ARE EXPECTED TO FALL INTO THE MID-40S UNDER
WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVERAGE AND SHOWERS. RH MINIMUMS ON THURSDAY WILL
DROP INTO THE MID TO UPPER 30S ON THURSDAY AS SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL
DECREASE IN COVERAGE FROM TODAY. OVERNIGHT RH RECOVERIES ARE EXPECTED TO
REMAIN EXCELLENT.
