FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
355 PM AKDT THU JUL 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...
THE PATTERN BEGINS TO SHIFT LATE TONIGHT AS A BUILDING RIDGE
STARTS TO IMPOSE ON THE MAINLAND. OFFSHORE FLOW WILL BEGIN TO TAKE
HOLD AND WARMER TEMPERATURES WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE FOR FRIDAY.
WARMER TEMPERATURES AND DRIER AIR MIXING DOWN FROM ALOFT WILL
BRING A DROP IN RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES...HOWEVER THEY SHOULD
REMAIN ABOVE 30 PERCENT WITH LITTLE WIND TO SPEAK OF. A FRONTAL
BOUNDARY FROM THE PACIFIC WILL MOVE OVER THE MAINLAND LATE FRIDAY
INTO SATURDAY BRINGING SOME GUSTY EASTERLY WINDS BUT ALSO
RAIN AND COOLER TEMPERATURES.
