.DISCUSSION...
DRIER AND CLOUDY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY
AFTERNOON...AS BROAD AND DEEP SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW CONTINUES TO KEEP
THE INLAND PORTIONS OF SOUTHCENTRAL IN A DOWNSLOPED REGIME. THE
DOWNSLOPE COMPONENT WILL REMAIN ON THE WEAK SIDE, SO STILL EXPECT
SOME ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS TO PASS THROUGH THE INLAND AREAS.
EXPECT NEARLY CONTINUOUS RAIN ALONG THE COAST THROUGH THURSDAY...WITH
RAIN LIKELY SPREADING INLAND ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
HIGH PRESSURE AT THE SURFACE WILL CONTINUE TO BUILD OUT AHEAD OF AN
APPROACHING WARM FRONT THIS EVENING...PRODUCING SOME GUSTY WINDS
THROUGH THE USUAL GAPS (TURNAGAIN ARM/KNIK ARM/COPPER RIVER).
