NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
339 PM AKDT FRI JUL 25 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A HIGHLY AMPLIFIED UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL CONTINUE OVER THE BERING SEA
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. NORTHERLY TO NORTHWESTERLY FLOW WILL USHER
DISTURBANCES SOUTH TO SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE AREA. THE FIRST DISTURBANCE
WILL CROSS THE KUSKOKWIM DELTA TONIGHT AND BRING A CHANCE OF LIGHT
RAIN. AFTER THAT...MODELS ARE REALLY STRUGGLING WITH PLACEMENT OF
INDIVIDUAL DISTURBANCES...RESULTING IN LOW CONFIDENCE IN EACH MODEL`S
RESPECTIVE FORECASTS. IT WOULD SEEM THAT WETTING RAIN CHANCES WILL
REMAIN NEAR OR AT ZERO UNTIL EARLY NEXT WEEK WHEN A STRONGER DISTURBANCE
MAY MOVE SOUTH ACROSS THE AREA.
