Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
331 PM AKDT Mon May 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...Gap winds have developed today in near the northern
end of Alaska Range passes. These winds will diminish this evening
as a front moves to the north. In any event, the RH values in the
areas experiencing gap winds are not expected to drop below 25 percent.

Isolated thunderstorms are possible this evening along a line from Arctic
Village to Holy Cross. Tomorrow there is the potential for some isolated
thunderstorms from Venetie to Anaktuvuk Pass. Thunderstorm activity will
be limited Wednesday and Thursday with potential for isolated thunderstorm
activity returning to the southeastern Interior Friday.

A shortwave will move north across the Interior tonight into Tuesday,
this will bring some showers to much of the Interior, particularly
for areas north and west of Fairbanks. A ridge will build across the
Interior Wednesday and Thursday resulting in a warming and drying trend.
An easterly wave will move into the southeastern Interior Friday resulting
in cooler temperatures and increased chances of showers.
