Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
616 AM AKDT Sun May 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Steady rain, heavy at times, will persist across the Eastern Kenai
Peninsula and Prince William Sound regions through tonight, before
gradually diminishing during the day Monday. Inland areas will
remain mostly dry today due to downslope flow, though cloud cover
will help to moderate temps and rhs, similar to Saturday. This
will change overnight tonight into Monday morning as rain or
showers spread inland, particularly from the western Kenai to
Anchorage and the Mat-Su. With increased instability Monday there
is also a slight chance of wet thunderstorms, primarily across the
Susitna Valley and Talkeetna Mountains.

Meanwhile, the strong gap winds will continue today, but diminish
tonight through Monday as pressure gradients relax. A much more
benign pattern will set up Tuesday with a broad surface high over
Southcentral and very weak pressure gradients. Expect warmer and
drier conditions to accompany the lighter winds.
