FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
729 AM AKDT THU SEP 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...A SERIES OF UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES MOVING UP FROM
THE NORTH CENTRAL PACIFIC ARE TRANSPORTING DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE
TO SOUTHCENTRAL. EXPECT RAIN TO OVERSPREAD THE REGION FROM
SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST TODAY AND PRODUCE WIDESPREAD WETTING RAINS
OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS. STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OVER
THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS WILL AVERAGE APPROXIMATELY ONE TENTH TO ONE
QUARTER OF AN INCH INLAND AND ONE HALF TO OVER ONE INCH ALONG THE
GULF COAST.

ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY CROSSING THE BERING SEA
WILL ARRIVE IN THE GULF FRIDAY AND KICK MOST OF THE RAIN EASTWARD
AND OUT OF SOUTHCENTRAL. THE FLOW BEHIND THIS WILL BE WEAK AND
DIFFUSE...WITH NOTHING TO REALLY DRY OUT THE AIRMASS. THEREFORE
EXPECT CONSIDERABLE CLOUDINESS THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL
RESULT IN FAIRLY COOL DAY-TIME HIGHS AND RELATIVELY HIGH RHS.

PROGRESSIVE UPPER LEVEL FLOW MEANS THE WEATHER WILL REMAIN ACTIVE
AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK. ALTHOUGH MODELS DIFFER ON TIMING OF
FEATURES IT APPEARS ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN MAY ARRIVE IN
SOUTHCENTRAL SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY.
