NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
306 PM AKDT FRI AUG 22 2014

.DISCUSSION...

WEAK UPPER RIDGE OVER THE INTERIOR WILL BRING DRY WEATHER FOR MOST OF THE
INTERIOR THROUGH THE WEEKEND. WEAK SHORTWAVE ASSOCIATED WITH UPPER LOW OVER
THE WESTERN ALEUTIAN ISLANDS WILL MOVE NORTHEAST ALONG THE GULF OF ALASKA COAST
AND OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN INTERIOR THIS EVENING. THIS WILL HELP SPARK OFF
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS AND SCATTERED SHOWERS OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN
INTERIOR THIS EVENING. LOW CHANCES FOR SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN
INTERIOR THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING. ANOTHER SHORTWAVE WILL DROP SOUTHEAST FROM THE
ARCTIC AND OVER THE EASTERN BROOKS RANGE SATURDAY. THIS WILL BRING LOW CHANCES
FOR SHOWERS SATURDAY...WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE SATURDAY.

GAP WINDS WILL DEVELOP THROUGH THE EASTERN ALASKA RANGE PASSES STARTING SUNDAY
EVENING. RED FLAG CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED SINCE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BE
INCREASING AHEAD OF THE UPPER LOW CENTERED OVER BRISTOL BAY LATE SUNDAY.
