FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
854 AM AKDT FRI JUL 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...THE WEATHER SYSTEM THAT BROUGHT RAINFALL TO THE
EASTERN INTERIOR ON THURSDAY HAS MOVED OFF TO THE NORTH EAST.
MOST OF THE PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH THIS SYSTEM IS OUT OF
THE AREA...AND THE ONLY LINGERING EFFECTS WILL BE SOME SCATTERED
SHOWERS IN THE EASTERN BROOKS RANGE.

TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL BE SIMILAR TO VALUES SEEN ON THURSDAY...IF
NOT SLIGHTLY WARMER. RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TODAY WILL GENERALLY
BE MUCH LOWER THAN YESTERDAY ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA. THE LOWEST
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES TODAY WILL BE IN ZONE 220 WHERE VALUES IN
THE UPPER 20 PERCENT RANGE WILL BE SEEN...HOWEVER...WINDS WILL
DECREASE DURING THE DAY TODAY IN THESE AREAS AND WILL NOT BE
STRONG ENOUGH IN THE AFTERNOON TO PROMPT ANY RED FLAG CONCERNS.

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO BUILD INTO THE REGION
TONIGHT...THIS WILL LEAD TO A SIGNIFICANT WARMING AND DRYING
TREND ACROSS THE REGION SATURDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL
CONFINED TO THE EASTERN BROOKS RANGE...AS WELL AS ALONG
AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM NORTHWAY TO DENALI PARK TO MANLEY HOT
SPRINGS TO MCGRATH.
