Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Alaska
National Weather Service Fairbanks AK
330 PM AKDT Sun May 20 2018

.DISCUSSION....

A thermal trough along with unstability aloft will be the cause
of scattered to numerous showers and a slight chance of isolated
thunderstorms through tomorrow for the Interior. Thunderstorms are
expected to fire around Delta Junction today and in the northeast
Interior tomorrow, in an area east of Fort Yukon in zone 220 and
north of Eagle in zone 224. Expect 0.10-0.25 inch of rain with the
showers and storms. Minimum RH values are expected in the mid 20
percentile today and will gradually rise the next couple of days
as a low in southern Alaska will spin moisture into the interior
from the southeast. This will also mean generally cloudy and
somewhat cool temperatures for the next few days.
