NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
249 PM AKDT FRI JUL 31 2015

WEST WINDS WILL REMAIN GUSTY OVER THE NORTHERN INTERIOR FOR THE
SEVERAL DAYS FROM MID AFTERNOON UNTIL EARLY EVENING IN RESPONSE
TO A THERMAL TROUGH CENTERED OVER THE EASTERN BROOKS RANGE. LOWEST
RH VALUES THIS AFTERNOON WILL BE SEEN GENERALLY IN THE YUKON FLATS...
FALLING BETWEEN 30 TO 35 PERCENT. THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL WILL EXIST
ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF A LINE FROM NIKOLAI TO ARCTIC VILLAGE.

OVERALL...A RIDGE IS EXPECTED TO BE ESTABLISHED OVER THE
SOUTHERN TWO-THIRDS OF MAINLAND ALASKA BY LATE TODAY. A WEAK
SFC LOW AND DISTURBANCE ALOFT MOVING EASTWARD OVER FAR NORTHERN ALASKA
WILL BRING LOW CHANCES FOR SHOWERS OVER PORTIONS OF THE INTERIOR...ALONG
WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE FAR SOUTHEAST INTERIOR AND
SOUTHEASTERN BROOKS RANGE ON SATURDAY. ELEVATED RH VALUES ARE EXPECTED
THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WITH A WARMING AND DRYING TREND EXPECTED FOR
THE EASTERN INTERIOR FOR THE WORK WEEK NEXT WEEK AS RIDGING OVER THE

REGION.
