FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
637 AM AKDT SUN AUG 2 2015

.DISCUSSION...
LIGHT SHOWERS WILL TRACK THROUGH THE LOWER KUSKOKWIM VALLEY THROUGH
THIS MORNING...AS A WEAK TROUGH CONTINUES TO TRACK THROUGH THE
SOUTHWEST MAINLAND. STABLE CONDITIONS CAUSED BY A STRENGTHENING RIDGE
OVER THE BERING SEA WILL LIMIT SHOWER DEVELOPMENT ACROSS SOUTHWEST
ALASKA THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. THESE STABLE CONDITIONS WILL HELP TO
KEEP WINDS BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS. THE ONE EXCEPTION WILL BE RAIN
DEVELOPING OVER THE ALASKA PENINSULA TUESDAY MORNING...AS A FRONT
ASSOCIATED WITH A NORTH PACIFIC LOW TRACKS FURTHER NORTHEAST OVER THE
AREA. WITH ABUNDANT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE RH VALUES WILL REMAIN ABOVE
CRITICAL LEVELS THROUGH MONDAY. HOWEVER...AS INCREASING OFFSHORE FLOW
AND CLEARING SKIES LEAD TO A DRYING/WARMING TREND THROUGH MID-WEEK.
