SYNOPSIS
Hot and dry weather continues in the Central and Eastern Interior with showers and storms this afternoon from the Western AK Range to the Brooks Range. The Interior could reach the upper 80s by Wednesday. The threat of Isolated showers or thunderstorms continue through Tuesday. Looking a bit farther, we are monitoring a Bering Sea low which could bring some much needed widespread rain to SW AK beginning on Wednesday, though there is some uncertainty.

DISCUSSION
Upper Level Analysis...
Ridging persists over the Interior while a wave of vorticity in the Western Interior moving north to the Brooks Range today. This piece of energy then pushes east over the ridge and through the Brooks Range to Arctic Village it goes. There is an Arctic low in the Beaufort Sea that is dropping south at 541 decameters. The west coast will see a 528 dam low move into the Bering Tuesday into Wednesday. Otherwise, ridging builds to 570 dam by Wednesday over the Interior. High center moves over the northern Interior by Thursday.

Central and Eastern Interior...
Above normal temperatures will persist over the Interior through at least Wednesday. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s through Tuesday. Mid to upper 80s by Wednesday. The main risk for showers or thunderstorms will be west of the Dalton today and back over the Interior on Monday and Tuesday during the aftn/evenings.
Wednesday looks to be a very hot day with the threat of storms shifting to the western Interior.

North Slope and Brooks Range...
Stratus has burned off near the coast but could return later tonight. Rain showers and thunderstorms will be in the Brooks Range as a shortwave moves through. There will be a chance for a thunderstorm from Red Dog northeast, but remain away from the coast and south/west of Umiat.

West Coast and Western Interior...
Isolated thunderstorms possible today from the Western AK Range north with widely scattered storms around McGrath. Most thunderstorms remain east of Galena and Huslia as well. Isolated storms move east tomorrow though it remains warm with highs in the 70s to low 80s both days. Along the coast, it stays dry through Tuesday with highs in the 50s and 60s.

Extended Forecast Days 4-7...
Hot and dry weather continues with highs getting into the mid- upper 80s by Wednesday. Temperatures remain hot through the end of the week. One system we are monitoring is a low in the Bering which may bring a front to the West Coast on Wednesday. The low looks to hang around through the end of the week so rain chances continue along the West Coast and in the Western Interior. In the Interior, a few models (GFS/ECMWF) are hinting at the ridge shifting north allowing for an easterly wave which would bring scattered thunderstorms to the Eastern and Central Interior on Thursday. Thunderstorm chances could persist into the weekend for the Interior.

Coastal Hazard Potential Days 3 and 4...None.

FIRE WEATHER
Hot and dry weather continues with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s through Tuesday. Mid to upper 80s on Wednesday. Fortunately, wind looks to remain relatively weak as well, so Red Flag criteria will not be met. But expect minimum RHs around 20-30% today and tomorrow. On Tuesday, it becomes a little more moist as minimum RHs rise to 25-35% with the lowest values in the Yukon Flats.
Drier weather looks to return on Wednesday. Otherwise, expect isolated thunderstorms today from the Western AK Range to the Brooks range with the greatest risk or widely scattered storms occurring in an area around McGrath and also from Hughes to the Central Brooks Range. This area of storms moves east tomorrow with most of the Central and Eastern Interior, as well as the Brooks Range seeing a chance for a thunderstorm, especially in the higher terrain. Isolated storm chances continue Tuesday afternoon as hot and semi- dry conditions continue.



HYDROLOGY
Recent heavy rains have led to higher water levels along the Fortymile River, but drier conditions expected over the next several days will allow water levels to fall this coming week.
Glacial fed rivers may begin to rise as warming temperatures lead to increased high elevation snowmelt.


AFG WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
AK...None.
PK...Small Craft Advisory for PKZ805-852.
