NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JUNEAU AK
406 PM AKDT FRI MAY 22 2015

FOR SPECIFIC FORECASTS PLEASE CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.


...FIRE DANGER ELEVATED THROUGH SATURDAY...


.DISCUSSION...THE PERSISTENT UPPER RIDGE THAT HAS CAUSED WARM AND DRY
CONDTIONS FOR INLAND AREAS OF THE PANHANDLE WILL MOVE EASTWARD SATURDAY
AFTERNOON. AN UPPER LEVEL LOW OVER DIXON ENTRANCE WILL ALSO MOVE TO THE
SOUTHEAST ON SUNDAY WHICH WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE THREAT OF AFTERNOON
AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS MOVING OUT OF BRITISH COLUMBIA. MARINE MOISTURE
WILL PERSIST ALONG THE OUTER COAST TONIGHT AND WILL MOVE INLAND LATER
ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. EXPECT MUCH COOLER AND MORE LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE ON SUNDAY INTO NEXT WEEK.

NOTE - LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING SEA BREEZES WILL INCREASE LOW LEVEL RH
ON SATURDAY.
