No flooding is expected from the heavy rain that fell in the Juneau area on Thursday and early Friday.
Ed Liske of the National Weather Service said they recorded .93 inch of rain over 24 hours at their office on Back Loop Road. About .95 inch fell at Auke Bay, .88 inch at Montana Creek, and nearly an inch fell at the Juneau International Airport over 24 hours. A rain gauge located in downtown Juneau recorded 1.51 inches during the 24-hour period that ended at 9 a.m. on Friday.
Liske says the rain came from a 972 millibar system or the first significant fall storm that has moved into the Southeast Alaska Panhandle.
Most of the high winds of gusts of 60 miles per hour or higher were recorded in the vicinity of Ketchikan, Hydaburg, Annette, and Metlakatla which prompted the National Weather Service to issue wind warnings for that area.
