FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JUNEAU AK
709 AM AKDT THU JUL 24 2014

FOR SPECIFIC FORECASTS PLEASE CONTACT THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE.


.DISCUSSION...SOUTHEAST ALASKA IS IN FOR A PERIOD OF WET
WEATHER WHICH WILL KEEP FIRE DANGER LOW THE NEXT FIVE DAYS. THE
CENTRAL COASTAL AREA AROUND SITKA COULD RECEIVE UP TO FIVE
INCHES OF NEW PRECIPITATION BY EARLY NEXT WEEK WHILE THE INNER
CHANNELS AND NORTHERN PANHANDLE MAY SEE ABOUT HALF OF
THAT...GENERALLY TWO TO THREE INCHES OF RAIN.

LOW PRESSURE WILL SLOWLY MOVE EAST ACROSS THE GULF OF ALASKA
THURSDAY AND WILL BECOME NEARLY STATIONARY OFF THE COAST FRIDAY
THROUGH AT LEAST MONDAY. A MOIST SW FLOW ALOFT INTO THE MOUNTAINOUS
TERRAIN WILL LIKELY GENERATE LOCATE AREAS OF HEAVY PRECIPITATION
FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY. ADDITIONAL RAIN IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
WIND SPEEDS WILL FLUCTUATE AND SLOWLY INCREASE EARLY NEXT WEEK BUT
WINDS ARE NOT THE MAIN FORECAST MESSAGE. MOIST CONDITIONS WILL
KEEP FIRE DANGER LOW THE NEXT FIVE DAYS.
