Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
256 PM AKDT Mon May 21 2018

.DISCUSSION....

The thermal trough will continue to be the main feature in the
Interior through Wednesday. There will also be a series of
shortwaves aloft moving through the Interior from the south. These
coupled with the thermal trough will be enough to spark isolated
thunderstorms. This afternoon and evening there is expected to be
a pocket of storms in zone 220. Tomorrow thunderstorms will be
along the thermal trough laying across the Interior southwest to
northeast from zone 221 to northern zone 224. There will also be
scattered to numerous showers that could produce heavy amounts of
rain in the eastern Alaska range and the Forty mile country Tuesday
into Wednesday.

Minimum RH values are not of concern. This is due the amount of
precipitation we received earlier today, with more rain expected
the next couple of days, as the low in southern Alaska will continue
to spin moisture and cloud cover into the Interior. Winds generally
less than 15 mph through Wednesday. Cloudy and somewhat cooler
conditions are expected the rest of the week as there will not be
much change in the weather pattern.
