... Strong thunderstorms with hail, strong winds and brief heavy
rain today in the southern interior...

Thunderstorms across the southern interior of Alaska are
producing hail, winds gusting to 30 mph, and brief heavy rain.
Hail may be up to one half inch in size, and rain fall amounts
may be up to three quarters of an inch. The thunderstorms are
isolated over most of the southern interior including Fairbanks,
but are scattered in the upper Tanana and fortymile country near
the Canadian border which includes Tok, Northway, Chicken and
Eagle. The thunderstorms are short lived, but will continue to
develop over the southern interior through midnight, and may last
past midnight near the Canadian border.

The town of Eagle had a thunderstorm from 3 to 4 PM today with
hail lasting for over one half hour. By the time the storm was
over, an inch or more of hail was covering the ground. Some of
the hail was one half inch in diameter. Eagle also had winds
gusting to 25 mph, and had over Sixty-Six hundredths of an inch
(0.66) of rain from that storm. A long time weather observer in
Eagle reports that they have not had a storm like this since the
1970s.

Another round of significant thunderstorms is expected Saturday
in the fortymile country and upper Tanana Valley including Tok,
Northway, Chicken and Eagle.
