.DISCUSSION...
Quiet and dry weather pattern for the next two days as a ridge of
high pressure over the Gulf of Alaska and an inverted trough over
the southern panhandle produces light offshore flow over the
inner channels. The least cloud cover, highest temperatures (mid
60s), and lowest humidity (around 60 percent) is expected Wed
before a front approaching from the W brings increasing clouds
and cooler weather for late Wed night and Thu. Rain is expected
for Thu night as the front moves through the area. Winds will
remain less then 10 mph through Thu. Some patchy fog is possible
early Wed morning and late Wed night.
