FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
633 AM AKDT MON JUL 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
A VIGOROUS UPPER-LVL DISTURBANCE OVER NORTH CENTRAL AK WILL QUICKLY
TRACK SOUTHWARD TO NEAR KODIAK ISLAND BY EARLY TUE MORNING...THEN DRIFT
AROUND SOUTHERN REACHES OF THE GULF OF AK AS AN UPPER-LVL LOW THROUGH
THU. THIS FEATURE IS MOVING CONSIDERABLY FASTER THAN INITIALLY
PROGGED AND APPEARS TO HAVE A LARGER SCOPE OF RAIN...THUS CHANCES OF
WETTING RAIN HAVE BEEN REVISED SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER FROM THE MAT-SU
VALLEYS AND ANCHORAGE TO THE WESTERN KENAI PENINSULA. PRECIPITATION MAY
INITIALLY BE MORE SHOWERY IN A SLIGHTLY UNSTABLE AIRMASS AHEAD OF THE
DISTURBANCE...BUT SHOULD TRANSITION TO A STABLER RAIN BY EARLY
EVENING. RAIN THEN LOOKS TO END FROM NORTH TO SOUTH TONIGHT. OTHER SLOW
MOVING UPPER-LVL DISTURBANCES PINWHEELING AROUND THE BROAD LOW IN THE
GULF WILL IMPACT THE COPPER RIVER BASIN WITH SHOWERS/RAIN.

THE REMAINDER OF THE SOUTHERN MAINLAND LOOKS TO TRANSITION TO A DIURNAL
SHOWER PATTERN WITH PERIPHERAL EFFECTS FROM THE COPPER RIVER BASIN
DISTURBANCES THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK.
