FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
409 PM AKDT MON JUN 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FIRING ALONG HIGHER
TERRAIN THIS EVENING UNDER THE THERMAL TROUGH. THIS SET-UP WILL
REMAIN THE SAME FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WITH WEAK FLOW ALOFT.
THE PATTERN WILL ALSO FAVOR GUSTY SOUTHEAST FLOW THROUGH FAVORED
AREAS. THE THERMAL TROUGH WILL HELP TO PULL SOME MORE MOISTURE
INLAND FROM THE GULF OF ALASKA...SO OVERNIGHT RECOVERIES SHOULD
BE EXCELLENT. A STRONG FRONT WILL MOVE NORTH TOWARDS THE GULF
COAST LATE WED BRINGING ANOTHER ROUND OF GUSTY SOUTHEAST WINDS.
