Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
356 PM AKDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...A thermal trough stretching from Eagle to Bettles will
persist through tonight and then move over Chicken stretching through
Nenana to Ambler Thursday afternoon. Friday afternoon it will lie
over Chicken to Nenana to Anaktuvuk Pass. Moderate instability
along and south of the trough will allow isolated afternoon
thunderstorms to form over most of the Eastern Interior today and
over the southern Interior Thursday and Friday.

A ridge aloft building over the Eastern Interior Thu will persist
into the weekend. This will cause generally warm and dry conditions
over the Eastern Interior starting Thursday and continue into the
weekend.
