FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
800 AM AKDT SAT AUG 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...WEST WINDS WILL REMAIN GUSTY OVER THE NORTHERN
INTERIOR FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS FROM MID AFTERNOON UNTIL EARLY
EVENING IN RESPONSE TO A THERMAL TROUGH CENTERED OVER THE EASTERN
BROOKS RANGE. RH VALUES WILL BE OVERALL HIGHER FOR MOST PLACES IN
THE INTERIOR WITH A WEAK DISTURBANCE AND FRONT MOVING IN FROM THE
NORTHWEST...WHICH WILL BRING SCATTERED SHOWERS TO THE INTERIOR
TODAY INTO SUNDAY. THE CHANCE OF WETTING RAINS WILL REMAIN LOW.
THE BEST INSTABILITY AND CHANCES FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE OVER
THE FAR SOUTHEAST INTERIOR THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

OVERALL...A RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO BUILD INTO
SOUTHWESTERN ALASKA THIS WEEKEND...WITH A WARMING AND DRYING
TREND EXPECTED FOR THE EASTERN INTERIOR FOR THE WORK WEEK NEXT
WEEK.
