Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska...CORRECTED
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
902 AM AKDT Tue Jul 25 2017

Corrected Discussion

.DISCUSSION...An old cold front that extends from Talkeetna to
Dawson will weaken through tonight. Showers along this trough
will become scattered through the day as it weakens. Moderate
instability southeast of the front will allow isolated
thunderstorms to occur over the southeast interior this afternoon
and evening.

A thermal trough and moderate instability developing over the
eastern Interior Wed will cause isolated thunderstorms over most
of the eastern Interior on Wed. The trough will move over the
southern Interior Thu producing isolated thunderstorms.

A ridge aloft building over the eastern Interior late in the week
will cause a warming and drying trend over the Interior late this
week.
