FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
717 AM AKDT WED MAY 4 2016

.DISCUSSION...
THE THERMAL TROUGH AND OVERALL UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT REMAINS OVER
THE SOUTHWEST ALASKA REGION. THIS WILL RESULT IN A SLIGHT CHANCE
FOR WET THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS.
THE THERMAL TROUGH WILL THEN BEGIN TO SHIFT OFF TO THE NORTH ON
THURSDAY AS A LARGE STORM SYSTEM OVER THE PACIFIC MAKES ITS WAY
TOWARD THE GULF OF ALASKA. EXPECT GENERALLY DRIER CONDITIONS
THOUGH THERE WILL STILL BE ENOUGH INSTABILITY TO PRODUCE A FEW
DIURNAL SHOWERS.
