801 AM AKDT THU JUL 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...ANOTHER WET DAY IS IN STORE FOR MOST OF SOUTHCENTRAL
AS A LOW SPINS OVER THE GULF AND AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHES
FROM THE WEST LATER TODAY. THERE WILL BE JUST ENOUGH INSTABILITY
TO PRODUCE A ISOLATED WET THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE WESTERN ALASKA
RANGE....SUSITNA VALLEY...AND TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS.

THE GULF LOW WILL GET KICKED EASTWARD TONIGHT LEADING TO GRADUAL
DRYING OVER THE GULF AND SOUTHERN TIER OF SOUTHCENTRAL. RAIN AND
SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE ALONG AND NEAR THE ALASKA RANGE WHICH WILL
CONTINUE TO BE INFLUENCED BY A SERIES OF WAVES PASSING THROUGH
INTERIOR ALASKA. A FAIRLY FLAT UPPER RIDGE WILL THEN BUILD ACROSS
SOUTHCENTRAL FRIDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. THIS WILL LEAD TO SOME
SUNSHINE AND WARMER AND DRIER CONDITIONS. MORE CLOUDS AND
OCCASIONAL RAIN OR SHOWERS WILL PERSIST RIGHT ALONG THE ALASKA
RANGE.
