DISCUSSION
 
COOLER TEMPERATURES AND HIGHER HUMIDITIES WILL BE  
THE RULE ACROSS SE AK MON. AT THE SURFACE A MARITIME AIR MASS IS  
PUSHING NORTH TO APPROXIMATELY A LINE FROM CROSS SOUND TO  
WRANGELL. CLOUD BASES ARE BETWEEN 1000 TO 2000 FEET. THIS CLOUD  
DECK WILL LIFT SOME TODAY AND SUN BREAKS ARE EXPECTED AFTER NOON.  
A BRIEF PERIOD OF 25 MPH WINDS HAS ACCOMPANIED THE LEADING EDGE OF  
THIS COOLER MOIST AIR MASS WHICH SHOULD SPREAD OVER ALL BUT THE  
HAINES-SKAGWAY AREA BY TONIGHT. ALOFT THERE IS A WEAK FRONTAL  
SYSTEM FROM ROUGHLY YAKUTAT TO GLACIER BAY AND THROUGH THE CENTRAL  
PANHANDLE. IT IS LIFTING SLOWLY NORTHWARD. THIS SYSTEM MAY CAUSE  
SPRINKLES OR BRIEF LIGHT RAIN TODAY AND THIS EVENING MAINLY WEST  
OF LYNN CANAL AND CHATHAM STRAIT. OVERALL LITTLE CHANGE TUES BUT  
THE LIKELIHOOD OF WETTING RAIN INCREASES BY LATER WED AND  
ESPECIALLY THURS.
