300 PM AKDT MON SEP 1 2014

...FLOOD POTENTIAL...

MINOR TO MODERATE FLOODING EXPECTED ALONG THE CHENA AND CHATANIKA
RIVERS. SMALL STREAMS AND RIVERS MAY FLOW OVERBANK IN LOW LYING
AREAS BETWEEN THE NULATO HILLS AND THE WESTERN ALASKA RANGE.

...HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL DISCUSSION...

THE NEARLY STATIONARY CLOSED LOW JUST NORTH OF NORTHWEST ALASKA WILL
BEGIN TO MOVE EASTWARD TUESDAY NIGHT. AN UPPER TROUGH AXIS IS
CURRENTLY MOVING THOUGH THE PANHANDLE OF ALASKA. A SURFACE COLD
FRONT IS MOVING THROUGH THE INTERIOR. BY WEDNESDAY... THE SOUTHERN
HALF OF ALASKA WILL UNDER NEARLY ZONAL FLOW AND GENERALLY DRIER
CONDITIONS... WHILE THE FAR NORTH WILL STILL BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE
OF THE UPPER LOW.

THE GREATEST PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS FOR TODAY WILL BE OVER THE
INTERIOR AND THE PANHANDLE...WITH UP TO AN INCH POSSIBLE. SOME WEST
FACING SLOPES MAY RECEIVE UP TO 2 INCHES. THE RAINS OVER THE
INTERIOR WILL CAUSE SOME FLOODING CONDITIONS NEAR FAIRBANKS AND OVER
THE WESTERN INTERIOR. DRYING OUT FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...WITH
THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION OVER THE UPSLOPE REGIONS OF THE ALASKA
RANGE.

FREEZING LEVELS THIS MORNING RANGED FROM 500 TO 3000 FEET FOR THE
NORTHERN HALF OF THE STATE. FOR THE SOUTHEAST MAINLAND AND
PANHANDLE... 4000 TO 7000 FEET. THE SOUTHWEST AND ALEUTIANS RANGED

REMAIN IN THE 1000 TO 3000 FOOT RANGE. FOR THE GULF OF ALASKA
COAST... INCLUDING THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS AND PANHANDLE... WILL SEE
