Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska...UPDATED
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
1036 PM AKDT Fri Jun 23 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING HAS EXPIRED FOR UPPER TANANA VALLEY AND THE
FORTYMILE COUNTRY...

.DISCUSSION...Relative Humidity value are expected to remain above
25 percent across most of the Interior with the exception of the
Yukon Flats into the eastern Brooks Range where they will dip into
the low 20s. In the Western Interior and Central Interior values
will generally be in the 30s and 40s. A weak pressure gradient
over the Interior through Saturday will keep sustained winds
below Red Flag criteria.

Scattered thunderstorms and LAL of 4 are expected in the
Fortymile and Upper Tanana Valley again Saturday, but after todays
rainfall it is uncertain if a Red Flag for Sat will be issued.

Elsewhere, scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms are
expected along and south and east of a line from Anvik to Manely
Hot Springs to Fairbanks through this evening. Potential for
isolated thunderstorms will shift south Saturday over an area south
and east of a line from Nikolai to Salcha and north of Eagle.
