402 PM AKDT SAT AUG 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL SETTLE IN OVER SOUTHWEST ALASKA THROUGH
MONDAY...CONTINUING THE WARMING AND DRYING TREND. SHOWERS WILL TAPER
OFF FOR MOST OF THE REGION OVERNIGHT WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS ON SUNDAY
ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE. ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ALONG THE
INTERIOR SECTIONS KENAI PENINSULA AS WELL AS PORTIONS OF THE COPPER
RIVER BASIN THIS EVENING.

AS HIGH PRESSURE BRINGS DRIER AIR INTO THE REGION...CLEAR SKIES WILL
ALLOW FOR WARMER AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES AND DECREASED MINIMUM RH VALUES.
EXPECT MINIMUM RH VALUES TO FALL AS LOW AS THE UPPER 20S INLAND SUNDAY
AND MONDAY WITH OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES EXPECTED TO BE EXCELLENT.
