FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR INTERIOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
251 PM AKDT MON MAY 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE STILL IS THE DOMINANT FEATURE FOR
THE CENTRAL INTERIOR BUT THERE ARE A COUPLE OF UPPER LEVEL TROFS THAT
WILL CUT INTO THE RIDGE AND PROVIDE ENOUGH INSTABILITY FOR A FEW
SHOWERS ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON FOR PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN
INTERIOR. UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL REFORM AND STRENGTHEN TUE NIGHT AND
RH VALUES WILL FALL WEDNESDAY. ADDITIONALLY...THE LOWER LEVEL THERMAL
TROF WILL MIGRATE NORTHWARD TO NEAR FAIRBANKS AND EAS TO WEST FROM THERE
ON WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL STRENGTHEN SURFACE WINDS AND WILL LIKELY PROVIDE
ENOUGH DRYING AND WIND FOR RED FLAGS TO BE OF A CONCERN AT THAT TIME.
