Anchorage-Matanuska Valley-Western Kenai Peninsula-
Western Prince William Sound-Susitna Valley-
Including the cities of Anchorage, Eagle River, Indian, Eklutna,

Talkeetna, Willow, and Cantwell
524 AM AKDT Wed Jul 8 2020

...MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE ANCHORAGE BOWL,
MAT- SU VALLEYS, AND KENAI PENINSULA TODAY...

An unusual weather pattern has setup for Southcentral Alaska for
early July resulting in a potent storm system set to impact the
region today into tonight. The main impacts will be moderate rain
for the MAT-SU valleys and the Anchorage Bowl with moderate to
heavy rain expected for the Anchorage Hillside to the northern
Kenai Peninsula (Cooper Landing, Moose Pass, Seward and Sterling
Highways). Rainfall amounts will generally be between 0.5 and 1
inch with some locations along the Seward Highway exceeding 1
inch. Localized ponding on roadways and quick rises in area
rivers and streams will also be likely with this storm.

Please be sure to slow down and use caution when driving due to
reduced visibilities in heavier rain squalls, especially this
morning into the early afternoon. Stayed tuned to your forecast
for updates at www.weather.gov/Anchorage.
