Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
454 AM AKDT Tue May 22 2018

.DISCUSSION....

A series of shortwaves aloft moving through the Interior from the
southeast. These coupled with the weak thermal trough will be enough
to spark isolated thunderstorms along a line from Old Crow to
Fort Yukon to Fairbanks to McGrath. There will also be scattered to
numerous showers that could produce heavy amounts of rain in the
eastern Alaska Range as well as the central and eastern interior
especially to the east of Fairbanks.

Minimum RH values will not be a concern over the central and eastern
interior with more rain expected today through Thursday. Winds generally
less than 15 mph through Thursday. Cloudy and somewhat cooler
conditions are expected the rest of the week as there will not be
much change in the weather pattern.
