FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
351 PM AKDT THU MAY 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA WILL ALLOW FOR A
SLIGHT CHANCE OF WET THUNDERSTORMS THIS EVENING WEST OF BETHEL BUT
WEAK INDICES MAKE IT UNLIKELY TO BE MORE THAN A COUPLE CELLS...IF
ANY AT ALL. A FRONT WILL THEN MOVE OVER SOUTHWEST ALASKA AND STALL
BRINGING RAIN THROUGH FRIDAY. RIDGING WILL MOVE IN SATURDAY BUT
THE PREVIOUS RAIN WILL ALLOW FOR MIN RH VALUES TO PRIMARILY STAY
IN THE 40S OR HIGHER SATURDAY AFTERNOON.
