356 PM AKDT SUN MAY 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE WILL DRIFT OVER SOUTHCENTRAL AND WEAKEN
THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS BRINGING SOME HIGH CLOUDINESS AND COLDER AIR ALOFT
WHICH SHOULD BRING ENOUGH MOISTURE AND LIFT TO GET SOME AFTERNOON/EVENING
SHOWERS ALONG THE TALKEETNA MOUNTAINS AND TO A LESSER EXTENT THE CHUGACH.
TOWARD MID-WEEK A WEAKENING FRONT AND UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL RETURN
MORE WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVER AND MOISTURE TO THE AREA. RELATIVE HUMIDITY
VALUES WILL DROP INTO THE 20S IN SOME LOCATIONS BUT WINDS WILL GENERALLY
REMAIN LIGHT ACROSS SOUTHCENTRAL.
