FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
222 PM AKDT TUE AUG 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES ARE EXPECTED THE REST OF TODAY...EXCEPT PARTLY
SUNNY SKIES AT TIMES NEAR THE NORTH SLOPES OF THE ALASKA RANGE.
MIN RH VALUES THIS AFTERNOON SHOULD STAY ABOVE CRITICAL VALUES
HOWEVER...MAY SEE A FEW SPOTS IN THE SOUTHEAST INTERIOR DECLINE
BELOW 30 PERCENT. OTHERWISE...STILL POSSIBLE TO SEE A FEW ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS NEAR THE NORTH SLOPES OF THE ALASKA RANGE WEST OF
THE TOK CUTOFF.

A THERMAL TROUGH THAT HAS DEVELOPED THIS AFTERNOON WILL STRENGTHEN
TOMORROW. THE THERMAL TROUGH WILL BRING CLOUDS AND INCREASED
CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS TO PORTIONS OF
INTERIOR ALASKA...WITH THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED PRIMARILY IN THE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. WILL SEE SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPERATURES AND
WETTER CONDITIONS AS WELL HOWEVER...THE SOUTHEAST INTERIOR WILL
BE THE EXCEPTION. WHEREIN...MINIMUM RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO
DROP BELOW 30 PERCENT WED IN THE SOUTHEAST INTERIOR WITH SIMILAR
TO SLIGHTLY WARMER TEMPERATURES. DECENT MIXING COMBINED WITH AN
INCREASING THERMAL RIDGE AND SUFFICIENT INSOLATION THERE SHOULD
PROMPT RH VALUES TO DECLINE SUB-30 PERCENT.

OVERALL...NO FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS IN THE INTERIOR. A WEAK FRONT
PUSHING EASTWARD INTO THE CENTRAL INTERIOR LATE WED AFTERNOON WILL
ALLOW COOLER TEMPERATURES TO RESUME AGAIN ACROSS THE INTERIOR
THU.
