FOR LOW HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM TO 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM TALKEETNA SOUTH...

.DISCUSSION...
THE SYNOPTIC WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE LARGELY DICTATED BY INTENSIFYING
LOW PRESSURE TODAY APPROACHING THE SOUTHERN GULF BEFORE BECOMING
STATIONARY AND PERSISTING IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK.

CLEARING WILL OCCUR FROM SOUTH TO NORTH THIS AFTERNOON AS AN UPPER
LEVEL MOVES NORTH TOWARD THE INTERIOR. THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR HUMIDITY
VALUES TO ONCE AGAIN DROP TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. FOR THIS
REASON...RED FLAG WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM EAST
ANCHORAGE NORTHWARD THROUGH THE MATANUSKA VALLEY INTO THE SOUTHERN
SUSITNA VALLEY. VERIFICATION OF THESE RED FLAG WARNINGS WILL BE
HIGHLY CONDITIONAL TO THE EXACT TIMING OF WHEN THE CLEARING SKIES
OCCURS FROM SOUTH TO NORTH.

AS THE LOW BECOMES MORE EXPANSIVE IN THE GULF...LIGHT WINDS WILL
INCREASE FROM THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST LATE THIS EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY MORNING. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS AS IF THE RH RECOVERY MAY
BE QUITE POOR IN PARTS OF THE MATANUSKA VALLEY TONIGHT.

BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON...MOISTURE LEVELS ACROSS NEARLY ALL OF
SOUTHCENTRAL WILL BEGIN TO IMPROVE AS AN EASTERLY WAVE MOVES WEST
ACROSS THE AREA.

647 AM AKDT SAT APR 25 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM TO 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM EAST ANCHORAGE NORTH...

...RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM TO 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM TALKEETNA SOUTH...

.DISCUSSION...
THE SYNOPTIC WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE LARGELY DICTATED BY INTENSIFYING
LOW PRESSURE TODAY APPROACHING THE SOUTHERN GULF BEFORE BECOMING
STATIONARY AND PERSISTING IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK.

CLEARING WILL OCCUR FROM SOUTH TO NORTH THIS AFTERNOON AS AN UPPER
LEVEL MOVES NORTH TOWARD THE INTERIOR. THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR HUMIDITY
VALUES TO ONCE AGAIN DROP TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. FOR THIS
REASON...RED FLAG WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM EAST
ANCHORAGE NORTHWARD THROUGH THE MATANUSKA VALLEY INTO THE SOUTHERN
SUSITNA VALLEY. VERIFICATION OF THESE RED FLAG WARNINGS WILL BE
HIGHLY CONDITIONAL TO THE EXACT TIMING OF WHEN THE CLEARING SKIES
OCCURS FROM SOUTH TO NORTH.

AS THE LOW BECOMES MORE EXPANSIVE IN THE GULF...LIGHT WINDS WILL
INCREASE FROM THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST LATE THIS EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY MORNING. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS AS IF THE RH RECOVERY MAY
BE QUITE POOR IN PARTS OF THE MATANUSKA VALLEY TONIGHT.

BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON...MOISTURE LEVELS ACROSS NEARLY ALL OF
SOUTHCENTRAL WILL BEGIN TO IMPROVE AS AN EASTERLY WAVE MOVES WEST
ACROSS THE AREA.

647 AM AKDT SAT APR 25 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM TO 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM EAST ANCHORAGE NORTH...

...RED FLAG WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM TO 10 PM AKDT THIS EVENING
FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM TALKEETNA SOUTH...

.DISCUSSION...
THE SYNOPTIC WEATHER PATTERN WILL BE LARGELY DICTATED BY INTENSIFYING
LOW PRESSURE TODAY APPROACHING THE SOUTHERN GULF BEFORE BECOMING
STATIONARY AND PERSISTING IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK.

CLEARING WILL OCCUR FROM SOUTH TO NORTH THIS AFTERNOON AS AN UPPER
LEVEL MOVES NORTH TOWARD THE INTERIOR. THIS SHOULD ALLOW FOR HUMIDITY
VALUES TO ONCE AGAIN DROP TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS. FOR THIS
REASON...RED FLAG WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR LOW HUMIDITY FROM EAST
ANCHORAGE NORTHWARD THROUGH THE MATANUSKA VALLEY INTO THE SOUTHERN
SUSITNA VALLEY. VERIFICATION OF THESE RED FLAG WARNINGS WILL BE
HIGHLY CONDITIONAL TO THE EXACT TIMING OF WHEN THE CLEARING SKIES
OCCURS FROM SOUTH TO NORTH.

AS THE LOW BECOMES MORE EXPANSIVE IN THE GULF...LIGHT WINDS WILL
INCREASE FROM THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST LATE THIS EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY MORNING. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS AS IF THE RH RECOVERY MAY
BE QUITE POOR IN PARTS OF THE MATANUSKA VALLEY TONIGHT.

BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON...MOISTURE LEVELS ACROSS NEARLY ALL OF
SOUTHCENTRAL WILL BEGIN TO IMPROVE AS AN EASTERLY WAVE MOVES WEST
ACROSS THE AREA.

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
1118 AM AKDT FRI APR 24 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 10 PM AKDT THIS
EVENING FOR LOW HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 10 PM
AKDT THIS EVENING FOR STRONG WIND FOR THE ANCHORAGE AREA...

.DISCUSSION...

A RED FLAG WARNING FOR LOW HUMIDITY FOR THE MATANUSKA VALLEY
WAS ISSUED OVERNIGHT FOR THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY THIS EVENING.
HUMIDITY VALUES THE LAST TWO DAYS HAVE DROPPED TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS
AND WILL LIKELY DROP BELOW 15 PERCENT IN MANY LOCATIONS IN THE MATANUSKA
VALLEY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOUTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING OUT OF THE KNIK RIVER
VALLEY. THIS WILL LIKELY CREATE ENOUGH MIXING TO LOWER HUMIDITY
VALUES FURTHER RESULTING IN CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. HIGH LEVEL
CLOUD COVER COULD COULD RESULT IN SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITY VALUES
THAN WHAT IS CURRENTLY BEING FORECAST. THE CRITICALLY LOW HUMIDITY VALUES
COULD EXTEND INTO NEARBY ZONES SUCH AS THE SOUTHERN SUSITNA VALLEY AND THE
NORTHERN PART OF THE ANCHORAGE ZONE PARTICULARLY FROM JBER NORTH.

A WEATHER FRONT WILL SLOWLY DISSIPATE OVER THE WESTERN GULF THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS BRINGING OCCASIONALLY WET CONDITIONS TO FAR SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
AND KODIAK ISLAND. INCREASING HIGH CLOUDS OVER THE REGION WILL RESULT IN
GRADUALLY INCREASING HUMIDITY VALUES SATURDAY DESPITE CONTINUED DIURNALLY
DRIVEN GAP FLOWS/WINDS EACH AFTERNOON/EVENING.

FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
653 AM AKDT FRI APR 24 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 10 PM AKDT THIS
EVENING FOR LOW HUMIDITY ACROSS THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

.DISCUSSION...

A RED FLAG WARNING FOR LOW HUMIDITY FOR THE MATANUSKA VALLEY
WAS ISSUED OVERNIGHT FOR THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY THIS EVENING.
HUMIDITY VALUES THE LAST TWO DAYS HAVE DROPPED TO NEAR CRITICAL THRESHOLDS
AND WILL LIKELY DROP BELOW 15 PERCENT IN MANY LOCATIONS IN THE MATANUSKA
VALLEY THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOUTHEAST WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING OUT OF THE KNIK RIVER
VALLEY. THIS WILL LIKELY CREATE ENOUGH MIXING TO LOWER HUMIDITY
VALUES FURTHER RESULTING IN CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. HIGH LEVEL
CLOUD COVER COULD COULD RESULT IN SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITY VALUES
THAN WHAT IS CURRENTLY BEING FORECAST. THE CRITICALLY LOW HUMIDITY VALUES
COULD EXTEND INTO NEARBY ZONES SUCH AS THE SOUTHERN SUSITNA VALLEY AND THE
NORTHERN PART OF THE ANCHORAGE ZONE PARTICULARLY FROM JBER NORTH.

A WEATHER FRONT WILL SLOWLY DISSIPATE OVER THE WESTERN GULF THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS BRINGING OCCASIONALLY WET CONDITIONS TO FAR SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
AND KODIAK ISLAND. INCREASING HIGH CLOUDS OVER THE REGION WILL RESULT IN
GRADUALLY INCREASING HUMIDITY VALUES SATURDAY DESPITE CONTINUED DIURNALLY
DRIVEN GAP FLOWS/WINDS EACH AFTERNOON/EVENING.

THE 40-50 PERCENT RANGE BY LATE EVENING. A STALLED FRONT OVER THE WESTERN
GULF WILL BRING A CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS TO THE SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
THROUGH SATURDAY...WITH MID/HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS CONTINUING TO SPREAD OVER

CORRECTED TYPO IN DISCUSSION

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 10 PM AKDT FRIDAY FOR LOW
HUMIDITY FOR THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

.DISCUSSION...
GAP WINDS WILL DEVELOP THROUGH TURNAGAIN ARM AND THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE EVENING AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST. THIS WILL COINCIDE WITH RH VALUES DROPPING INTO
THE 20S ACROSS THE MATANUSKA AND SUSITNA VALLEYS AND INTO THE 30S IN THE
ANCHORAGE BOWL. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR STRONG WINDS HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR
THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS EXPECTED EXPECTED ALONG
THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY AND INTO THE PALMER AREA AND LIGHTER WINDS FARTHER
WEST TOWARDS WASILLA. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIGHT IN THE SUSITNA
VALLEY DESPITE THE LOW RH VALUES. RH VALUES WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER INTO
THE 40-50 PERCENT RANGE BY LATE EVENING. A STALLED FRONT OVER THE WESTERN
GULF WILL BRING A CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS TO THE SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
THROUGH SATURDAY...WITH MID/HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS CONTINUING TO SPREAD OVER
THE REST OF THE AREA.

CORRECTED TYPO IN DISCUSSION

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 10 PM AKDT FRIDAY FOR LOW
HUMIDITY FOR THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...

.DISCUSSION...
GAP WINDS WILL DEVELOP THROUGH TURNAGAIN ARM AND THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE EVENING AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST. THIS WILL COINCIDE WITH RH VALUES DROPPING INTO
THE 20S ACROSS THE MATANUSKA AND SUSITNA VALLEYS AND INTO THE 30S IN THE
ANCHORAGE BOWL. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR STRONG WINDS HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR
THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS EXPECTED EXPECTED ALONG
THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY AND INTO THE PALMER AREA AND LIGHTER WINDS FARTHER
WEST TOWARDS WASILLA. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIGHT IN THE SUSITNA
VALLEY DESPITE THE LOW RH VALUES. RH VALUES WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER INTO
THE 40-50 PERCENT RANGE BY LATE EVENING. A STALLED FRONT OVER THE WESTERN
GULF WILL BRING A CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS TO THE SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
THROUGH SATURDAY...WITH MID/HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS CONTINUING TO SPREAD OVER
THE REST OF THE AREA.

GAP WINDS WILL DEVELOP THROUGH TURNAGAIN ARM AND THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY
FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH THE EVENING AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS
ALONG THE NORTH GULF COAST. THIS WILL COINCIDE WITH RH VALUES DROPPING INTO
THE 20S ACROSS THE MATANUSKA AND SUSITNA VALLEYS AND INTO THE 30S IN THE
ANCHORAGE BOWL. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR STRONG WINDS HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR
THE MATANUSKA VALLEY...WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS EXPECTED EXPECTED ALONG
THE KNIK RIVER VALLEY AND INTO THE PALMER AREA AND LIGHTER WINDS FARTHER
WEST TOWARDS WASILLA. WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIGHT IN THE SUSITNA
VALLEY DESPITE THE LOW RH VALUES. RH VALUES WILL BEGIN TO RECOVER INTO
THE 40-50 PERCENT RANGE BY LATE EVENING. A STALLED FRONT OVER THE WESTERN
GULF WILL BRING A CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS TO THE SOUTHERN KENAI PENINSULA
THROUGH SATURDAY...WITH MID/HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS CONTINUING TO SPREAD OVER
