Heavy rain in southeastern Alaska river from the atmospherestarting on Sunday and continuing through the next week.

A warm, wet weather front moved northeastward from Hawaii, bringing heavy rain to the southern panhandle first.

“Then that’s going to lift a bit north, but then we’ll have another wave along that front, and that’s going to affect the area through Monday to Tuesday,” said Aaron Jacobs, Senior Service Hydrologist, National Weather Service, Juneau.

The heaviest and most consistent precipitation is expected in the northern panhandle, with between 6 and 8 inches of rain in Juneau. The biggest flooding problem will be Monday night through Tuesday as the rains continue.

“Things will change between now and Tuesday, but stay tuned to the National Weather Service for any updates to the system,” Jacobs said.

Depending on the development, the Bureau of Meteorology could issue a flood warning as early as Saturday.
