Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
345 PM AKDT Fri May 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...
A weak thermal trough will bring scattered showers to much of
Southwest Alaska this afternoon and evening, with just a slight
chance of a thunderstorm. The thermal trough will strengthen on
Saturday across the Kuskokwim Valley southward into Bristol Bay
leading to an increase in showers and wet thunderstorms. Cooler
and more stable air will move into the Kuskokwim Delta Saturday
then spread eastward on Sunday, which will confine any showers and
thunderstorms to right along the west side of the Alaska Range.
Dry conditions will then persist through Monday as high pressure
builds overhead.
