FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
619 AM AKDT TUE MAY 5 2015

.DISCUSSION...A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL EXIT ACROSS THE
COPPER RIVER BASIN TODAY PRODUCING ISOLATED TO SCATTERED CONVECTION.
MID TO HIGH CLOUDS HAVE MOVED IN ACROSS MUCH OF THE REGION...BUT
IT WILL HAVE LITTLE IMPACT ON TEMPS AND RHS WHICH WILL GENERALLY
REMAIN WARM AND DRY. THE ONE EXCEPTION IS THE KENAI PENINSULA WHICH
WILL SEE INCREASING MOISTURE AS A WEAK SURFACE FRONT APPROACHES
FROM THE SOUTH TODAY.

A STRONGER UPPER LEVEL FEATURE WILL REINFORCE THE FRONT OVER THE
GULF ON WEDNESDAY AND THIS WILL THEN TRACK NORTHWARD TO SOUTHCENTRAL
WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY WITH THE BULK OF RAIN REMAINING CONFINED
TO THE COASTAL ZONE. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING OUT AHEAD OF THE FRONT
WILL PRODUCE ONE MORE WARM AND SUNNY DAY ACROSS INTERIOR SOUTHCENTRAL
ALASKA ON WEDNESDAY. THE POSITION OF THE SURFACE RIDGE WILL ALSO
LEAD TO SOME LOCALIZED WINDS ALONG TURNAGAIN ARM...KNIK ARM...AND
ALONG THE COPPER RIVER.
