ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Cloudy skies and rain showers for Anchorage and much of Southcentral Alaska on Wednesday. Drier conditions for the rest of the evening.

Rainfall amounts are expected to be higher with the next system.

By Friday and Saturday, some better breaks. But if you are going to head out of town for Memorial Day weekend, prepare to encounter wet weather.

Ice jam flooding and snowmelt continue on Alaska’s rivers and streams. Water levels are running high if not running overbank. Flood advisories, watches and even warnings remain in place. Stevens Village, Fort Yukon and Beaver should brace for high water through the week.

Hot spot was Northway — hitting 71 degrees. The cold spot was Point Thomson at 22 degrees.
