Early signals are pointing to a possible atmospheric river event
late this week into the weekend including warming temperatures,
rising snow levels, and the potential for heavy rain. There is
uncertainty regarding exactly which portions of Southeast Alaska
will receive the heaviest precipitation, but current models show
the northern and central panhandle as most likely to receive the
highest amounts. General rainfall amounts of 4 inches or more are
possible from Friday through Sunday. Snow levels are forecast to
rise to around 2,000-3,000 feet over the northern panhandle and
5,000 feet over the southern panhandle which could lead to a
melting mountain snowpack adding to the water flow. Please stay
tuned to the forecast as it is refined through the week.
