Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:38 PM AKDT Aug. 19, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Periods of heavy rain expected Sunday night through
Tuesday...

A weather front with moisture from former Typhoon Banyan will
lift over the northern portions of Southeast Alaska starting Sunday
night. Rain amounts with this system will range from one half of
an inch to one inch on Sunday night. There will be a lull in the
rain amounts Monday morning before another period of heavy rain
will affect the area from Monday afternoon through Tuesday
afternoon. Additional rain amounts will range from 1 to 2 inches
with the highest amounts along the Coast Mountains.

The constant precipitation the past week has saturated the soils
and the forecasted rain amounts will cause streams and creeks to
rise significantly. At this time it is not expected that river
levels will rise above their banks. This is still an
evolving event, look for updates to the forecast on this situation
in the coming days.
