Heavy rain has moved back into the region as the atmospheric river affects the northern inner channels. This will cause rivers and small streams to rise and go above minor flood stage through today and tonight from the rainfall runoff. Most water levels are expected to be below flood stage by Thursday morning but Mendenhall Lake and River will lag behind the smaller streams and will not be below flood stage until Thursday afternoon time frame. There is still no indication that water is draining from Suicide Basin. * WHAT...Flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues. * WHERE...Mendenhall Lake and River, Montana Creek and Jordan Creek near Areas Around Auke Lake, Montana Creek, Skaters Cabin Road, Mendenhall Campground, View Drive And Jordan Creek Mall. * WHEN...Until 1000 AM AKDT Thursday. * IMPACTS...Minor flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Some low-water crossings may become impassable. River or stream flows are elevated. Soils remain moist and excessive runoff will result in minor flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, other low-lying areas, and flood-prone locations. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS... - At 1210 PM AKDT, satellite estimates and rain gauge data indicate heavy rain across the advisory area. Rapid river rises will cause minor flooding, especially near Montana Creek, and Jordan Creek. Water levels will rise more slowly and cause minor flooding along Mendenhall lake and Auke Lake. Between 1 and 1.5 inches of rain have fallen. The expected rainfall rate is 0.2 inches in 1 hour. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 1.75 inches are possible. - For Auke Lake near Auke Bay: At 11:00am the stage was 32.7 feet. Flood Stage is 33.0 feet. Impacts: At 33.0 feet: Water from the lake will inundate yards of homes along Auke Lake.

The times presented here are based upon the solunar theory, which is the idea that the movements of fish and other animals are affected by the location of the sun and moon. The major periods are believed to be the times of the greatest animal activity and occur when the moon is directly overhead or underfoot (lunar transits). The minor periods also see increased activity and occur when the moon is rising or setting. The strongest activity occurs during full or new moons, and the weakest during quarter or three quarter moons. This is indicated by the Action Rating.
