Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
630 AM AKDT Sun May 27 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Showers will continue over the area today due to a low in the
Gulf. Showers will be diurnally enhanced as some breaks in
the clouds allow for surface heating. Isolated wet thunderstorms
are expected this afternoon and evening for the interior Kenai
peninsula, with isolated to widely scattered wet thunderstorms
over the western Chugach Mountains, southern Susitna Valley,
central and western Copper River Basin and the Talkeetna
Mountains. On Monday the low will exit the Gulf and shower
activity will diminish. Isolated afternoon wet thunderstorms
will be possible in the southern Talkeetnas, and portions of the
Copper River basin and the Susitna River valley.
