Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Juneau AK
418 PM AKST Sun Nov 17 2019

...STORMS TO BRING MORE VERY HEAVY RAINFALL THIS WEEK...

More heavy rainfall will reach Yakutat Tuesday and slowly spread
eastward into the northern Panhandle and portions of the central
Panhandle Tuesday night into Wednesday. Heavy rainfall could
persist for some areas through early Thursday. Confidence for
heavy rain is highest over Yakutat where 5 to 6 inches of
rainfall is expected during the forty-eight hour period from
Tuesday through Wednesday night. Other Southeast Alaska
communities from Juneau, Angoon, and Sitka westward could see
periods of heavy rain with forty-eight hour rainfall amounts
ranging from 2 to 4 inches.

Rivers and streams are currently seasonably high due to repetitive
storms across the region. We do expect significant rises with this
system. While minor flooding in spots is a possibility, it is
currently not expected. It is too early to say with confidence.

Finally, there is a chance for a second round of heavy rain in
portions of the Panhandle Thursday night into the early weekend,
but details are not as certain. However, high waters will be
likely on area streams and rivers through the weekend.
