715 AM AKDT WED APR 23 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL BRING INCREASED CLOUDS TO SOUTHERN
ALASKA TODAY...WITH ISOLATED SHOWERS SPREAD ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY.
COOLER TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE REGION WILL ALLOW RH VALUES TO REMAIN
HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS DAYS. BY THE END OF THE WEEK A WEATHER FRONT WILL
MOVE INTO THE GULF OF ALASKA BRINGING MORE WIDESPREAD CLOUDINESS TO THE
AREA...THOUGH THE VAST MAJORITY OF RAIN WILL BE CONFINED TO THE
COASTLINES.

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE OVER MAINLAND ALASKA WILL PRODUCE ANOTHER SUNNY AND WARM
DAY WITH GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS. AS THIS HIGH PRESSURE SLOWLY WEAKENS
AND LIFTS NORTHWARD OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS INSTABILITY WILL GRADUALLY
INCREASE...FIRST LEADING TO DIURNAL CLOUDINESS AND EVENTUALLY DIURNAL
SHOWERS OVER HIGHER TERRAIN FOR THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK.

OVER KODIAK ISLAND...PRECIPITATION WILL REMAIN MORE INTERMITTENT
COMPARED TO PREVIOUS DAYS WHICH WILL ALLOW SOME BREAKS OF SUN. HOWEVER
PERSISTENT EASTERLY FLOW WILL KEEP RH VALUES RELATIVELY HIGH.
