The National Weather Service recorded almost 2 inches of rain Tuesday in the city of Kodiak, beating the Nov. 5 record set in 1941.
This record amount of rain accounted for almost half of November’s normal total rainfall.
October had about 10 inches of rainfall with five days of heavy rain and 21 days of light rain, and temperatures ranging from 29 F to 60 F.
Following 11 consecutive days of rainfall, the period of constant heavy rains will stop as a weak warm front, and the moisture associated with that front, moves north toward Homer and Prince William Sound, said Adam Przepiora, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
“You will see off and on rain for the next several days,” he said “It’s not expected to be anything very heavy.”
He added that there is some uncertainty about the weather next week, but he expects there to be little sunshine, he said.
“It’s a very wet pattern into the weekend,” Przepiora said.
Przepiora also said he expects above average temperatures next week — in the mid 40s — followed by cooler temperatures.
