FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
309 PM AKDT SAT JUL 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION WILL LEAD TO A WARMING
AND DRYING TREND THROUGH MONDAY.

A THERMAL TROUGH ALONG A GALENA TO DELTA JUNCTION AXIS WILL BRING GUSTY
WINDS THIS EVENING TO AREAS NEAR THE THERMAL TROUGH. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM
COVERAGE THIS EVENING WILL GENERALLY BE LIMITED TO AREAS ALONG THE CANADIAN
BORDER IN ZONES 220 AND 224.

RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES SUNDAY WILL BE SLIGHTLY LOWER WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER
WIND SPEEDS EXPECTED. MONDAY LOOKS TO BE THE WARMEST DAY OF THE WEEK. A
SHORTWAVE IS EXPECTED TO BRING GUSTY WINDS TO MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN INTERIOR ON
MONDAY. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE ON MONDAY...GENERALLY FROM
FAIRBANKS NORTH AND WEST.

AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL HELP TO PUSH THE RIDGE OFF TO THE EAST ON TUESDAY.
THIS WILL CAUSE A COOLING TREND IN TEMPERATURES WITH INCREASED CHANCES OF SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS.
