750 AM AKDT TUE MAY 24 2016

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE INTO SOUTHCENTRAL TODAY, SPREADING
INCREASING CHANCES OF RAIN/SHOWERS FROM WEST TO EAST. THE TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM
WILL KEEP THE BEST CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION FROM THE MATANUSKA VALLEY
NORTHWARD(MAINLY UPSLOPE ALONG THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS), THOUGH SOME SHOWERS
ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE CHUGACH MOUNTAINS EAST OF ANCHORAGE AND THE KENAI
MOUNTAINS. THE BEST CHANCE OF WETTING RAINS RAINS OVER THE COPPER RIVER BASIN
TODAY...MAINLY UPSLOPE AREAS ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE. RAIN AND SHOWERS WILL
DIMINISH ACROSS THE BASIN TONIGHT. THE FLOW ALOFT BECOMES MORE WESTERLY
WEDNESDAY SO EXPECT MAINLY CLOUDS WITH RELATIVELY LOW PROBABILITIES OF SHOWERS.
THE LOW OVER THE NORTH GULF STRENGTHENS TODAY AND WILL TIGHTEN THE OFFSHORE
PRESSURE GRADIENT TODAY AND GIVE RISE TO NORTH TO WEST GAP FLOWS ACROSS THE
EASTERN KENAI/WESTERN PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND. GAP FLOWS WILL DIMINISH OVERNIGHT
TONIGHT OVER THE EASTERN KENAI/WESTERN PRINCE WILLIAM SOUND. NORTHERLY GAP
WINDS HOWEVER WILL INCREASE BRIEFLY ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST LATE
TONIGHT/WEDNESDAY MORNING BEFORE RETURNING TO SEA BREEZES WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON.
