...HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE WITH RISING SNOW LEVELS LATE WEEK... Signals continue to point to a possible atmospheric river event late this week into the weekend including warming temperatures, rising snow levels, and the potential for accumulating snow changing to heavy rain. Winter Storm Watches are in effect for portions of the Panhandle for a period of accumulating snow Wednesday before changing to rain Thursday ahead of the arrival of the main storm. A short break is possible Thursday before heavy rain starts Thursday night. Rainfall amounts of 4 to 7 inches are possible from Thursday evening through Sunday, heaviest Friday and Saturday. Yakutat will likely see the highest rainfall amounts and Sitka on the lower end. Snow levels are forecast to rise to 3,000 to 4,000 feet. The heavy rain along with a melting mountain snowpack will increase the risk of minor flooding issues. Please stay tuned to the forecast as it is refined through the week.
