FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
657 AM AKDT MON MAY 25 2015

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHCENTRAL ALASKA WILL STAY IN A GENERALLY WET PATTERN THROUGH
TUESDAY AS A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVE OVER THE REGION.
WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT FOR MOST AREAS TODAY WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE
ANCHORAGE AREA WHERE THE TURNAGAIN WIND WILL KEEP CONDITIONS BREEZY AT
HIGHER ELEVATIONS. THERE WILL BE SOME BREAKS IN THE CLOUD COVER ON TUESDAY
OVER PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN SUSITNA VALLEY AND THE COPPER RIVER BASIN...
ALLOWING THE SUNSHINE TO ADD TO THE INSTABILITY ALREADY IN PLACE FROM THE
UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVING THROUGH THE AREA. THIS COMBINATION MAY
PRODUCE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE
ALASKA RANGE AND THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS ON TUESDAY.

DUE TO THE MOIST AIRMASS IN PLACE...RH VALUES SHOULD REMAIN FAIRLY HIGH OVER
THE AREA. THE LOWEST VALUES ARE EXPECTED IN THE COPPER RIVER BASIN HOWEVER
MINIMUM RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO STAY ABOVE 30 PERCENT WITH EXCELLENT
OVERNIGHT RECOVERY.
