Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
337 PM AKDT Sat May 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Ridge of high pressure will gradually build west from western
Canada and over Interior Alaska this weekend into next week.
This will allow for a gradual rise in temperatures and a drying
trend over the area, except across the southeastern Brooks Range
and the Upper Koyukuk Valley where minimum RH values will rise
slightly on Monday. Elsewhere, minimum RH values will drop into
the 20s to lower 30s.

Gap winds will persist near Alaska Range passes through Monday.
Despite drier conditions and minimum RH values near red flag criteria
in the vicinity of Alaska Range passes, sustained winds are expected
not to meet red flag criteria. Gusty winds will pick up over the northern
foothills overnight tonight and will continue through Monday morning.

Some instability over the area will help to kick off a few thunderstorms
this evening north of Allakaket and over the southeastern Brooks Range,
then again over the central Interior north to the southeastern Brooks
Range on Monday.
