Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
416 AM AKDT Mon May 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...Ridge of high pressure will continue to build west
from western Canada and over Interior Alaska through the middle of
this week.  This will allow for a gradual rise in temperatures and
additional drying of fuels.  Minimum RH values will drop into the
20s to lower 30s over much of the eastern and central interior.

Gap winds will develop again today near Alaska Range passes and will
locally approach Red Flag Criteria for sustained winds along
the Richardson Highway south of Delta Junction to Isabel Pass this
afternoon and early evening.  Expect minimum RH values near red flag
criteria in the vicinity of Alaska Range passes this afternoon and
this evening.

Isolated thunderstorms will develop this afternoon and evening along a
line from Arctic Village southwest to near Holy Cross.

Areas away from the Alaska Range with Red Flag temperature criteria will
need to be closely monitored beginning Tuesday and continuing through the
week as temperatures rise into the low to mid 70s, and minimum RH well as
wind criteria will also be close to meeting Red Flag criteria.
