FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
623 AM AKDT THU JUL 31 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A WEATHER FRONT WILL TRACK FROM NORTHERN AK TOWARDS THE ALASKA RANGE
LATE FRIDAY AND WEAKEN. SOME WETTING RAIN IS POSSIBLE FOR AREAS NORTH
OF TALKEETNA IN THE SUSITNA VALLEY AS THIS OCCURS. FOR THE REMAINDER
OF SOUTHCENTRAL AK...EXPECTING GENERALLY DRY WEATHER WITH TYPICAL
DIURNAL SHOWERS OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS AND A LIGHT WIND REGIME
INTO THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEKEND.

A COMPLEX LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LURKING OVER THE SOUTHERN GULF OF ALASKA
WILL BEGIN DRIFTING NORTHWARDS THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEKEND. THIS
LOOKS TO BRING INCREASING CLOUDS AND CHANCES FOR RAIN TO SOUTHCENTRAL
ALASKA EARLY TO MID NEXT WEEK.
