...Heavy showers possible into Saturday...

Locally heavy showers will be possible into Saturday in the
Juneau area. Rainfall of 1 to 1 1/2 inches will be possible
during this time, with up to 3 inches at higher elevations on the
north side of Juneau. This rainfall will likely cause area rivers
and streams to rise significantly. Montana Creek may reach
bankfull by Saturday morning, while Mendenhall Lake may rise more
than 2 feet by Saturday afternoon. Another concern is the heavy
rain filling up Suicide Basin, then this rainfall being released
into Mendenhall Lake and River. If this scenario occurs, water
levels would rise even more, potentially to bankfull or more over
the coming days. Stay tuned to later forecasts and statements for
updates on this event.
