357 PM AKDT FRI APR 17 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A STRONG FRONT WILL MOVE OVER THE GULF COAST TONIGHT AND BRING
WIDESPREAD PRECIPITATION TO COASTAL AREAS OF SOUTHCENTRAL AK THROUGH
THE WEEKEND. STRONG DOWNSLOPE FLOW WILL KEEP INLAND AREAS MOSTLY DRY
ALTHOUGH A FEW SHOWERS WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE. STRONG GAP WINDS WILL ALSO
ACCOMPANY THE FRONT...BUT A RELATIVELY MOIST AIR MASS WILL KEEP RH VALUES
ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS.
