... More rain and winds expected Tuesday night through Wednesday...

The wet pattern will continue through mid week over southcentral
Alaska. After a brief break from the heavier rain Tuesday, expect
the rain to return Tuesday night through Wednesday evening. The
heaviest rain will fall over the northern and eastern parts of the
Susitna and Matanuska valleys, east Anchorage and the hillside,
and areas of the Kenai Peninsula. No flooding is expected,
however expect local rises in rivers and small streams throughout
southcentral. Some of the higher rises will be seen on rivers in
the Susitna Valley. In urban areas there is a potential for local
ponding of water on roads, particularly in areas with poor
drainage.

In addition to the rain, there will be gusty southeasterly winds
across the Anchorage bowl, especially Turnagain Arm and the
hillside. Additionally, gusty southeast winds are expected out of
the Knik River Valley and along the Copper River. Winds will peak
in the aforementioned areas on Wednesday then diminish Wednesday
night.
