Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
352 PM AKDT Tue Jul 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...The remnants of a cold front extending from
Talkeetna to Dawson will weaken through tomorrow. Showers will
continue along this front until Thursday as it decays in place.
Moderate instability southeast of the front will allow isolated
thunderstorms to occur over the Southeast Interior this evening.

A thermal trough with moderate instability developing over the
Eastern Interior Wednesday will cause isolated thunderstorms over
most of the Interior. The trough will shift slightly south
Thursday producing isolated thunderstorms along the Alaska Range
that day. Isolated thunderstorms may also fire in areas of the
Central Brooks Range due to some instability and terrain enhanced
lift along the mountains on Thursday.

A ridge aloft building over the eastern Interior late in the week
will cause a warming and drying trend for the Central and Eastern
Interior.
