Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southcentral Alaska
National Weather Service Anchorage AK
612 AM AKDT Sun May 20 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Broad upper level level trough will continue to steer surface
lows/fronts north across the Gulf through early this week. The
net result will be generally cloudy and wet conditions along the
coasts with sporadic showers/rain with some sunshine inland.
The combination of surface ridging along the North Gulf Coast
and a strengthening thermal trough over the interior will give
rise to localized southerly winds along the Copper River, out of
the Knik River, and over west Anchorage during the afternoon and
evening hours through Monday. Elsewhere, Turnagain Arm winds will
increase this afternoon then decrease again overnight tonight.
