... More rain and winds expected late tonight through Wednesday...

Expect multiple waves of rain with the heaviest starting late
tonight and continuing through Wednesday. 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. For the entire event, some locations will
receive upwards of 1 inch of rain. 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. Snow levels will generally hover between 3,000-4,000 feet
on Wednesday. But with colder air moving in Thursday, snow levels
could fall as low as 1,500 feet as showers continue.
