FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
758 AM AKDT SAT JUL 30 2016

.DISCUSSION...
BROAD SOUTHWEST FLOW INTO SOUTH CENTRAL ALASKA WILL KEEP
RELATIVELY CLOUDY MOIST CONDITIONS OVER THE SOUTHERN MAINLAND
THROUGH THE WEEKEND. A TIGHT PRESSURE GRADIENT IS PRODUCING
STRONGER SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WIND UP COOK INLET AND MODERATE
TURNAGAIN ARM AND ANCHORAGE HILLSIDE WIND. EXPECT SOME CLEARING AND WARMING
TODAY IN THE COOK INLET TO PALMER WASILLA AREA WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES. CROSS MOUNTAIN FLOW WILL RESULT IN MOSTLY
SUNNY WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS IN THE COPPER RIVER BASIN THIS
WEEKEND.
