FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WESTERN ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
829 AM AKDT THU JUL 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TODAY COMPARED TO
YESTERDAY OVER MOST OF WESTERN ALASKA. A WEAK SFC RIDGE WILL
DEVELOP ACROSS THE WEST COAST TODAY AND PERSIST THROUGH FRI.
OTHERWISE...A BROAD AND WEAK SURFACE PRESSURE PATTERN WILL PREVAIL
TODAY OVER NORTHERN ALASKA WITH A WEAK THERMAL TROUGH NEAR THE
SOUTH SLOPES OF THE BROOKS RANGE AND THE UPPER YUKON FLATS. DRY
CONDITIONS ARE ANTICIPATED TODAY...EXCEPT FOR ISOLATED AND
SCATTERED SHOWERS MAINLY IN THE YUKON DELTA AND THE UPPER
KUSKOKWIM VALLEY. THE LATTER WILL ALSO SEE ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.

A TRANSITION FROM A BROAD TROUGH TO A RIDGE ALOFT IS EXPECTED TO
TAKE PLACE OVER NORTHERN ALASKA. HOWEVER...A WEAK SFC LOW AND
DISTURBANCE ALOFT WILL MOVE EAST THROUGH THE CHUKCHI SEA TO JUST
NORTH OF BARROW FRI. THIS WILL BRING INCREASED CHANCES OF RAIN TO
MUCH OF THE WEST COAST AND PORTIONS OF THE WESTERN INTERIOR LATE
FRI AND SAT.
