FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
803 AM AKDT THU MAY 5 2016

.DISCUSSION...A THERMAL TROUGH STRETCHES FROM MOUNTAIN
VILLAGE...TO HUSLIA...TO BETTLES...TO OLD CROW AND IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN NEARLY STATIONARY TODAY. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO FIRE ALONG AND JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THIS FEATURE THIS
AFTERNOON AND INTO THIS EVENING. MIN RH READINGS WILL BE DRY FOR
THE MIDDLE AND UPPER YUKON AND TANANA VALLEYS WITH VALUES FALLING
BETWEEN 20 TO 30 PERCENT. IT WILL REMAIN WINDY THROUGH ALASKA
RANGE PASSES WITH SOUTH WINDS SUSTAINED BETWEEN 15 TO 25 MPH WITH
GUSTS UP TO 35 MPH.

SURFACE CONVERGENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THERMAL TROUGH WILL SHIFT TO
THE EASTERN INTERIOR TOMORROW...FOCUSING CONVECTION TO SE ZONE
220 AND NORTHERN 224...ALTHOUGH THE AMOUNT OF INSTABILITY LOOKS TO
DECREASE COMPARED TO WHAT WILL BE SEEN TODAY. MIN RH VALUES FOR
THE YUKON AND TANANA VALLEYS LOOKS TO FALL BETWEEN 25 TO 35
PERCENT ONCE AGAIN.
