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

.DISCUSSION....
A RIDGE WILL PREVAIL OVER THE WEST COAST THROUGH WED NIGHT.
MEANWHILE...A THERMAL TROUGH HAS DEVELOPED NEAR THE SOUTH SLOPES
OF THE EASTERN BROOKS RANGE AND YUKON FLATS. THE THERMAL TROUGH
IS ANTICIPATED TO STRENGTHEN TOMORROW.

COOLER AND SLIGHTLY WETTER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OVER THE
WESTERN INTERIOR TOMORROW. SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY WILL COMBINE
WITH ADEQUATE MOISTURE TOMORROW SUCH THAT A FEW ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE EAST OF MCGRATH NEAR THE NORTH SLOPES
OF THE ALASKA RANGE. NO FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS AS WINDS WILL BE
LIGHT TO MODERATE AND HUMIDITY VALUES WILL STAY ABOVE CRITICAL
VALUES. RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO BE LOWER THU AS A DRYING TREND
TAKES HOLD OVER THE WESTERN INTERIOR AND IN THE LOWER YUKON
VALLEY...A FEW LOCATIONS MAY SEE VALUES APPROACH 30 PERCENT TO
JUST BELOW 30 PERCENT.
