FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
358 PM AKDT MON JUN 29 2015

.DISCUSSION...
ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY WILL BE THE MAIN FIRE WEATHER
CONCERN THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING...WITH THE PRIMARY ACTIVITY
REMAINING CONFINED TO THE THE ALASKA RANGE...AS WELL AS THE
TALKEETNA AND WRANGELL MOUNTAINS. ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT FORM
ALONG THE WRANGELL MOUNTAINS TODAY HAVE A CHANCE TO PROGRESS
NORTHWESTWARD GIVEN THE EASTERLY STEERING FLOW. THIS COULD PUSH A
FEW WET THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE LOWER ELEVATIONS OF THE COPPER RIVER
BASIN THIS EVENING. GAP WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP THIS EVENING
ALONG TURNAGAIN ARM EASTWARD TO THE COPPER RIVER...WITH WINDS ALSO
STRETCHING INTO SOUTH/WEST ANCHORAGE AND THE MATANUSKA VALLEY THIS
AFTERNOON/EVENING. THESE GAP WINDS WILL PERSIST THROUGH
WEDNESDAY...GENERALLY WEAKENING AS WE MOVE FURTHER INTO THE WEEK.
RH VALUES ALONG THE COPPER RIVER WILL ALSO DIP INTO THE LOW TO MID
30S DURING THE STRONGEST WINDS THIS EVENING...HOWEVER WITH MOSTLY
CLOUDY SKIES OVERHEAD CONDITIONS SHOULD REMAIN ABOVE RED FLAG
CRITERIA.
