ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Dual low-pressure systems, with a third expected to form off the front of the storm to the west, are impacting Alaska through the rest of the week.

High surf and winds are still prompting the continuation of a high surf advisory over the west coast stretching from Point Hope in the northwest to the south of Hooper Bay. This also includes Saint Lawrence Island. Southeast winds will hit 30 to 50 mph and waves will crash over the tops of beaches.

Southeast Alaska will contend with a lot of rain, starting tonight over the northern part of the region, and moving overnight. Thursday sees a break before a new and heavy round of precipitation arrives Friday with 3 to 4 inches of rain anticipated.
