.DISCUSSION...
CLEAR SKIES AND ABUNDANT SUNSHINE WILL CONTINUE FOR MOST AREAS
THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. INSTABILITY HAS BEEN SLOW TO DEVELOP
ALONG THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS AND ALASKA RANGE...AS A RESULT
THUNDERSTORMS ARE NO LONGER EXPECTED THIS EVENING. COOLING
TEMPERATURES ALOFT WILL ALLOW INSTABILITY TO DEVELOP MORE
SIGNIFICANTLY TOMORROW...THUS ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS ARE
STILL EXPECTED ALONG THE MOUNTAINS OF THE NORTHERN TIER OF ZONES
TOMORROW (COPPER RIVER BASIN AND SUSITNA VALLEY).

RH VALUES WILL REMAIN ABOVE CRITICAL THRESHOLDS AT ALL
LOCATIONS...EXCEPT IN THE COPPER RIVER BASIN WHERE VALUES AROUND
30 ARE EXPECTED AGAIN TOMORROW. SOME SOUTHERLY WIND IS ALSO
EXPECTED ALONG THE COPPER RIVER TOMORROW...THOUGH SPEEDS SHOULD
REMAIN BELOW CRITICAL THRESHOLDS.
