...A very wet Memorial Day weekend on tap along the Gulf Coast
and Prince William Sound...
Steady rain will overspread the Gulf coast and Prince William
Sound regions this afternoon and then persist into Monday. This
includes Seward, Whittier, Valdez, and Cordova along with the
Seward Highway corridor from Girdwood down to Seward. The rain
will be heavy at times, especially along the coast from Seward to
Whittier, where rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches are expected. For
the other aforementioned areas, look for 1 to 2 inches of rain.
Rain should begin to let up a bit during the day Monday, possibly
even tapering off in some areas by Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile, inland areas of Southcentral Alaska (Western Kenai,
Mat-Su, Anchorage, Copper River Basin) will remain mostly dry
through Sunday, with just a few passing showers. Skies will remain
mostly cloudy with high temperatures generally in the 50s.
Forecast confidence drops on Monday, but it looks more likely for
showers to spread inland.
