Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Juneau AK
836 PM AKDT Sat Sep 14 2019

...SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL TOTALS POSSIBLE THIS WEEK...

A very wet week is expected with the potential for multiple
atmospheric river events to impact southeast Alaska. The first
event is expected to occur Wednesday to Thursday with the second
more significant event expected to occur over the weekend. This
weekend atmospheric river event has to potential to continue into
the early part of the following week (Sept. 22nd). Exact timing
and precipitation amounts remain uncertain; however, the Northeast
Gulf Coast is currently the most favored trajectory for highest
precipitation totals. In both of these events, rainfall totals
have the potential to exceed multi inch daily totals. The
potential for significant rises to occur along small streams and
water basins also exists, so continue to monitor the latest
forecasts and updates.
